Where do you have your rear sets adjusted at? - July 13, 2009, 09:02 PM

This question is mostly aimed at the people who go to the track...

In what position do you guys have your rear sets adjusted at? What I mean, do you have them all the way at the bottom but all the way back? and why(for example - you moved your rearsets up to force you to the tank, etc.)? I'm just seeing how different positions of rear sets affect a rider. Im thinking about moving my rearsets up one notch so I put the question out there.

1)Type of bike
2) Rider height

I have woodcraft rearsets plus risers that raise them an additional 1"up and 1" back, I wouldn't mind if they were a little higher even, I just feel more comfortable, like I can keep my weight off the seat, move around, grip the tank under braking etc, much easier cause my legs are in a more "ready" position, I try to keep constant tension through my legs so my butt is just barely pressing on the seat

bike: '03 636
me: 6'0" 165lbs

my job is galloping race horses so I'm used to being in that crouched position and have pretty fit legs as a result but even still my legs are very sore by the end of a track day

Gilles Rearset
Lowest Setting
Rear Most Position

Standard Shift pattern. I had them higher at first but I started getting cramps in my upper legs,and alot of false neutrals while shifting. Street is where I roam. I would like to try GP.Curious to hear the input!
