Question Rear sets for F4

As I get more used to my bike, I'm finding the foot pegs are too far forward for my liking, even when I have them adjusted as far back as possible, I find my legs are seizing up with the footrest position as it is. After a 100 miles or so in the saddle I'm getting cramp in the top of my legs. Bear in mind I'm only 5'7". I would think it would be worse for a taller rider. Has anybody got aftermarket rear sets fitted and if so what are your conclusions.

If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem!


No MV's in the garage anymore

We have some good choices.

Gilles, Performanceparts.de, Motowheels(Febur Italy), Sato, Valtermoto and MotoCorse(non adjustable)...

I have Valtermoto Tipo 3.5:



Here is a better view on Hereticus' bike that sold me on them last year:




I chose valtermoto because they are very adjustable and they sponsored the superstock and Ital superbike MV teams last year when GIMOTORSPORTS was running their first season (Ianuzzo). I don't favour the linkage rearsets like Gilles/Sato. Grip is great on the Valtermoto and I've heard the same about Sato and Teuchert's from performanceparts.de.

Performanceparts.de here (peg is on eccentric for adjustment):

James,

MotoCorse rearsets - peg has two adjustments (see attached photo).

Not that it makes that big a difference!

Thanks emoto for the Moto Corse pix, I read that those were adjustable but have never known "HOW "they are adjustable.

Thanks Emoto

I also forgot about the German rearsets that MV sells now (and found on Veltro):

james, those are really nice, but.... Imagine all your weight coming down on them after a a bump or something if you were out of the seat.. all the pressure is on one point which is connected by an allen bolt through an aluminium part??? hmm- they just seem like they would rotate around that single point.. are they burly enough??

Coleman.

I'm the same height as you and had the same problem, I knocked up a couple of Ally brackets at work just to see what the max adjustment of the Gilles would be before I purchased them, I also wanted them further back but also further down as well, most rearsets only go further back and up, I made these brackets about 3 years back now for my 750, then transferred them to the 1000, they do make life better!! I may one day make a better pair or buy a pukka set of rearsets, Todd in the States has his eye on these from Acculign, I'm waiting to see how the MV set turn out
