'bunny' hopping = now need rearsets

hi all - last night I was jacking around and blurping the throttle in 1st gear to get the bike the lung forward a little. i realized that with a little stand-up motion and throwing my fat ass 200lb weight around, I could get the bike to hop off the ground ala BMX-style bunnyhopping.
It wasn't taxing on the suspension or chassis, just a little low-end power blurping to get the bike to lift 2 or 3 inches off the ground.

well, in the end, the right peg snapped in half, so I've got half the contact space for my foot on the right side. I'll search the forums for rearset topics, but I wanted to pick y'alls brains for recommendations on a new rearset.

What do you guys recommend?

I haven't had them on a 10 yet, but the Attack Performance rearsets were awesome on the 636. Quality was excellent. BigDaddy has them on his 10. Might get with him. He gave good feedback on them when I asked about them for a 10.

Possibly a warranty item? Hrmmmmm...would be an immediate quick fix.

as for my diet ->
