Change them after you crash the stock. I scrape the lower instead of the peg after changing them. If you can't ride stock comfortably then your doing something wrong. That's coming from a little bitty guy.

Are they necessary? No......but it depends.

In my case; the only flaw that my bike is infamous for is a problematic rear brake. This issue can be solved by the Sato TypeIIs with the MC relocating kit. The additional grip and adjustability is certainly a plus, but I wouldn't suggest it will make anyone quicker.

Whenever your ready Jody and the same to you about your opinion. And yes there is a very small percentage of Pro racers who run regular shift and I'm sure it works for them and I'm just trying to let people know that they may want to try something that might improve their confidence while riding that might just help them get faster.

But please...tell me one pro racer who uses stock rearsets.

You are right...people can go fast with out it and there are better things for you to spend your money on. Chiba gets expensive huh?

This is bulllshhyte! I smoked Jody at TWS (Texas World Speedway) because of the rearsets! Jody ain't got nuthin' for me! I'll dust him any day of the week with my rearsets!















































Of course, I was on a GSXR750 and he was on a 450 Aprilia...













On a serious note, I like the rearsets because I believe they help out in a crash as long as they don't break off somewhere. I believe there have been a couple of get-offs I've had that they save some damage acting as another frame slider so to speak.

I don't know if I'd buy them just to spend the money though- I believe there are different priorities with $$ in regard to a track bike. IMHO of course.

Mat Mladin used to use GPshift. Due to an ankle injury that never healed properly, street shift is a lot easier for him.
