Tall guy mods

Any talk guys ever use the vortex adjustable rear sets to adjust for height on a sport bike?

The adjustable rear sets are mainly used to raise the pegs. You can lower them depending on the bracket. Hope this helps.

Rearsets help for the long legged and tall folks. Moves the pegs back so your knees and thighs can grip the tank better.

It also helps to know how tall you are too. There are also pegs that have a built in drop to lower the pegs for comfort too.

I have used Vortex rearsets on a few bikes to lower the pegs for more leg room. I currently have them on my ZX-14R.

I'm 6'5". Any adjustable rearsets moved all the way back and all the way down will help. But it's still gonna suck. LOL
Also, get some aftermarket clip ons, they're a little longer, and you can move them out a bit too. Helps with being cramped. I'd recommend Vortex for both rearsets and clip ons. Best bang for the buck IMO.

If that GSXR 750 is your bike you have the right one. Of all the bikes I've owned the GSXR's and S1000RR's fit me the best.

I have read where you can flip the vortex plates and even get a little bit more leg room. I bought a set and moved them back/up which worked for me.
