Being that I am in the 6'4" to 6'5" part of the population. Would a set of adjustable rearsets be a wise investment??
Thanks Ken

Definitely! You can raise'em up for track days and lower'em for long boring straight road trips or move'em where you feel most comfortable for all around riding and it will only take a few minutes to change them around. They really can make a difference in your riding performance and comfort.

I've had Sato, Mikuni, Protek, Harris and Gilles and of course OEM.

Mikuni (yes they make rearsets too!) are the best hands down! But at a price they are well over $500. The Harris are very nice as well and run about $400. The Gilles and Sato are nice pieces as well and will run you $450 or so. Protek are inexpensive often around $250-$300 but are not adjustable. They simply move the pegs up and back and offer replaceable pegs, pedals and such just like all the rest.

I should add that I'm 6'1" and am perfectly at home on my bikes with th rearset raised to the second from highest and the furtherest position back. They offer a wide variety of adjustments from stock position to further forward (why i don't know?) and back to further up and down from OEM. Add in a set of clip-ons and you really can get a custom set-up for your bike.
