in any "no tools" needed rearset, i would fully assume it would need some time of locking device?

Rearsets are kinda one of those "set it and forget it" type parts. Once you have a setup that works well and is comfortable for you, you'd probably never touch it again.

I think they just skipped the thought of "no tools necessary" adjustment for that very same fact.

But if one really wanted to make it adjustable on the fly, one could use bolts with D rings, ball bearing pins, possibly even oversized quarter turn fasteners. I could get creative and fabricate some different bolt heads also lol

i dont understand why do you want to adjust your rear sets randomly like that on the go?

If someone changes boots having an easily adjustable rearset would make sense to accommodate the change in footwear.

I would put the rearsets on a plate that pivots around an axle on a triangle with pin holes like we use to roll back line arrays. google a few line arrays and look how the boxes connect together with pins with push release ball bearing locks and safety wires.

something like this. bolt holes to the left, yellow is the axle between the 2 plates, and foot peg at back (yellow). Ball bearing locking pins in 1 of the aligning holes.

The pin lock rigging on 500-2000 pound line arrays is pretty strong...

i don't get why. i'm with tony, set it and forget once you find one that works for you. more parts means more stuff to break. if i crash and break/grind a peg, all i'm out is a peg and the bolt.

its like, 15 cents a foot.
In a crash, it would probably stay glued...3m adhesives are some tuff stuff

OH, and it comes in Clear, black, and gray I think......it would match any Gixxer or R6
