Do rearsets only provide more ground clearance and adjustability? or do they help improve ones riding? (street and/or track) I can see obviously the ground clearance improvement, but does the raising of the foot position make the bike easier to maneuver and handle?

Im kinda short(5'6" on a good day), so the ergos on my gsxr are fine, I was thinking about some rearsets since they would cramp me as much as a taller rider. Would it be a complete waste of money for a primarily street bike?
(other than just looking trick)

It is all preference.

I don't know about street only other than for being adjustable. As far as body position, I think they put your feet/legs in a position to better enable you to move around on the bike.

I think he meant that the only use I would get out of them on a streetbike would be looks.

Well, I think Ill just keep my eyes peeled for a used set for the GSXR for sale somewhere. I dont think Ill go searching and buy new. If the oppurtunity presents itself and I gots some $$$, then maybe.

Thanks guys!

Ok, I am guessing when we mention rear sets in here we are talking about adjustable rear sets and that is just it.... They are adjustable. The Vortex rear sets will give you 10 - 20mm upward, downward, forward and back adjustability from stock position. This gives the rider alot of choices for getting their feet where they would like. I have them on my K6 GSXR600... not because they look trick. The stock adjustables looked trick enough. I needed to get my knee into the tank more. So mine are all the way up and forward. This puts them 10mm higher and 10mm closer to the tank then what the stock adjustables would allow.

Well... could it be that you suck?

Dropping your bike from a wheelie and lowsiding probably have very different characteristics. One of these situations was taken into consideration during development of a race product. :icon_bigg

if you want moto-gp style shifting for free you can always take off you're shifter and flip it upside down and it works great.

Please refer to my edit and yes... I do believe it was your fault. You can only drop something so many times before it will break.

Oh, and since I am the dumbass and you are the genius maybe you should capitalize on the market for a stunt bread rear set.
