Well, it looks like I wont be able to get a track bike so I will be taking my street bike on the track more often. Does anyone have rear sets on their street bike? How do they like it? Is it REALLY worth getting since I have only been at the track a handful of times? I already too the feelers off since I kept on hitting them.. Which ones should I get?

Don't have rearsets on my street bike, but have a little bit of info that may be helpful. I put Attack adjustable rearsets on my track bike, and have adjusted them all of 1 time. If I had it to do over again, I'd either go with fixed rearsets, or perhaps even a custom made bracket to relocate the stock pegs. Not sure where you would find some for the 9, but might be worth looking into. One possible bonus to relocating the stock pegs would be retaining the spring in the pegs (i.e., the peg will still give even if it does hit).

No rearsets on my streetbikes because peg dragging on the street=faster than I should be going.

But I did just get some rearset plates for my SV to raise them up and back an inch. I much prefer hinged pegs. I would've crashed at Barber if they were solid. Solid pegs are more likely to break, or brake the bracket in a crash.
