what you cant see in those pics are the inside foot, which more than likely is on the ball. You outside foot shouldnt have much weight on it, so therfor its whatever is comfortable for you, ive seen pics where the riders foot is not even on the footpeg.. As for it hurting maybe its your boots, try putting a DR scholls in there or something.

adjustability, and also they dont break as easily, and they have replaceable parts.

to clarify japawhat's comment, the main purpose is for adjusting for ground clearance. they also don't break as easy as stock rearsets.

they break just as easy as stock and you get more ground clearance than stock when the bike is leaned over.

as for your ? andy.....i do the same as you....i believe it's our smaller tracks (compared to motogp tracks) and when we reach our series of turns.....we want to be ready for the next turn without having to adjust before the next turn. well that's why i think i'm doing that.

if you watch a lot of them motogp guys, before they turn in, you see their inside foot move off the peg at first and soon as they turn in, they put their foot back on the peg....maybe that's when they are adjusting position of their foot? :dontknow: just my theory

my rearsets have been through , the pegs usually just grind down, but do not snap off like stock pegs.

i think they are A LOT stronger than stock rearsets. just my personal experiences though.

Not just for clearance, but for comfort as well.

Sato racing makes some of the most crashworthy rearsets. Some are solely for the adjustability.

seen that also. all that is holding them on, on the outside is the knee on the tank.

and i have to agree with maybe some insoles... i ride on my tippy toes all the time, both feet and never felt any discomfort.

Never thought about that Tony, maybe your right. I have tryd to do the flat footed style but I can never get it ready before the turn. Maybe DR scholls will help out. Or maybe I got girly soft feet?

Rear sets should be as set to be as comfortable as possible. Putting them at their highest setting may not be the best if they are not comfortable.

You may find that just high enough to keep your boots off the tarmac is not only more comfortable but also more conducive to faster, easier lap times.

They are "adjustable", do some adjusting and get back to us! :-P

outside foot moves around to get blood flowing again. Put it wherever, but move it.

Adjustable rearsets are ghey, you don't need that BS. Unless you have one leg shorter than the other. Just get woodcraft. No need to f around w/ Sato, Gilles Vortex or any other w/ bearings. Can't get parts very fast and bearings are no good in rearsets. Unless you like replacing parts.

Cool

You should always be on the of your feet. This allows you to put weight on the peg in the direction of the turn which allows you more lean angle in the turn. Check out any racers boots soles and you will find a hole or at least an indention on the ball of their boots. At least this has been my experience.
