yes. u are confused. the passenger pegs are called PASSENGER PEGS. the front pegs & controls (brake & shifter pedals) are called REARSETS.

i am but one man...

and my opinion should count as such!


I recently bought some Arata fully adjustable rear sets, had them installed and off to the track I went. WOW! What an amazing difference it made. Before I was lazy and my body position suffered greatly. The rear sets put me more in a racers position and keep me on my toes (literally) I felt it from the first lap. Now granted I have some thigns to work on, because I missed a few shifts while gettinmg used to them and prolly will miss a few more, but I can improve that! Over all to me it was worth every penny I spent!

for what it's worth ... my new to me track bike has obviously been down on both sides and the vortex rearsets, while grounded a bit, work perfectly fine still.
