I've never had adjustable rearsets on any of my previous bikes so I have no idea what to look for.

On my Gen 5 the right foot peg lip digs into my foot and is uncomfortable after about 15 minutes, my foot falls asleep :(

Also, I'm pretty tall (6'4") so lowering the pegs slightly would help on longer rides.

Looking around the LighTech and Bonamici rearsets look really good, and seem pretty adjustable, but are there others I should be looking at?

I mainly commute on my 10r so I'm optimizing for comfort over track performance. Any input would be appreciated!

Those Diamond rearsets are fairly similar to the Chinese rearsets for ZX10R on Ebay.

CNC Black Adjustable Footpegs Mount Rearsets Rear for Kawasaki ZX10R 2011 2016 | eBay

I am 6'3" and long legged and they make life much nicer on the bike.
Better inner thigh to tank contact that also helps in taking weight off wrists on the bars and aids lower back as well as much better shifting through the gears.

Also for large feet it is more comfortable on the pegs, they are non slip but without the outer lip of the OEM rearsets.

Yes, the same is happening also with hotbodies pegs. I hope that there is something in the quality control that justify the price difference.

Be wise with your choice if you have the Abs model, because most rearsets require brake line modification. Plus if you plan to go Gp shift be aware that some rearsets kits requires an ECU flash to make the quickshifter works.

I don't have ABS and I'm sticking with standard shift but this is good to know!

Ordered a set of MGP's a few days ago. I'm hoping for about an inch more legroom. The funny thing is that the peg to seat distance is the same on the 10 and my 675, yet the 675 doesn't bother my knees at all.

I love my Vortex. Check with Mike @ Rider's Discount.
Thanks! Vortex for the GEN 5 are going to be a few months out yet for those wondering. Great affordable (and very adjustable) option if you can wait that long.

We just released our rearsets at Graves. These were originally developed to team specs for some racing applications and some exhausting R&D and 3D prototyping. When they came out it was exclusively through our WORKS program. Due to a lot of people having rearset caused shift issue they went pretty fast. We have extra sets on hand now :)

Just ordered a set of woodcraft.. I love them - have them on my 2008 GSXR1000.
They will be looking good beside my Graves low mount carbon!

Also check out the Attack Performance rearsets.

That's what I've got and I love them.

I'm not to sure about how much they can be lowered from stock but they're definitely an improvement.

I got mine from Mike at Riders Discount as well so give him a try.

I have had 5 or 6 sets of the Chinese rearsets between my ZX6Rs and ZX10Rs and have had good luck with them. Just have to use a good amount of red loctite. :) I use them on my GEN5 with ABS as well and didn't have to modify anything.

Be Careful... Check the ACTUAL amount of drop in adjustments.. Most don't drop at all.. I ended up going Gilles as they have the most in drop. Followed by Attack.. If you notice, most sellers say they have gobs of adjustment, but they don't tell/show you schematic to actually see it.. Also don't be fooled... Hate to say it.. But most sets ARE made by the Chinese and re-badged.. I say most... Not all..

I'm still looking for someone who makes a drop plate for the rear sets, that will fix most our problems..

(Regarding Woodcraft rearsets and the concerning ABS model)

and from this thread http://www.zx-10r.net/forum/f23/zx1...extra-long-brake-line-344201.html#post4408089


purchased on Revzilla and from their site they mention "a fitment issue" with the rear brake line for the ABS model.
The line needs to be custom ordered "a few inches longer".
_____________________________________________________

I have talked to Spiegler... this is what they said..

"We can make a rear line for you. You would however need to tell us the extra length you need and if the fitting(s) need to be changed.
We do not keep specs on lines that use non-OEM equipment. Once you get that info you can call us at the number below to place an order for a custom line."
____________________________

Before I started the install on the woodcraft rearsets... I did a bit of digging around.

I also contacted Woodcraft and asked them about it, basically if they could tell me the length.
This is the message woodcraft sent me:

"We would recommend running a brake line that is about 2 inches longer. Galfer would be the best bet to source them. Note that to install the longer brake line you would have to remove the rear swing-arm."
_____________

I'm not taking off a swing-arm for this. Disappointed, I ended up putting the woodcraft rearsets back on a truck to Revzilla.

I contacted R&G yesterday here's their reply!

"Many thanks for getting in touch. We include a replacement/extended brake line in the Rearset kit to allow for full adjustability of the rear set, swingarm removal isn't required to install the R&G kit"
they also included the instructions.
