    WTB RC51 Rearsets


    If anybody has a set of these they want to sell, i'd be interested. I heard they make the bike more comfortable for taller riders, so i'd like to check it out. Not really interested in buying new...idk if i'll like them.

    Note: These are not going on a track bike, strictly street.

    Most rearsets are less comfortable for taller riders. The typically raise the foot peg height and move it rearward. Great for racing (clearance) but not so great for comfort. (Coming from a 6'3" guy) They do make adjustable rearsets, but most of them the zero position is near stock, and "adjustable" moves the peg progressively more up/rearward.

    Sorry guys, I didn't realize I had replies to the thread! After doing a little more research, I guess I'll pass on your offer, onenut and nt650hawk. As loudbeard suggested, it doesn't look like these will give me any more legroom. Thanks for the offer and your help guys!

    I am 6'5" and ride an RC51. After a crash at loudon I was forced to get rearsets and I went with Satos and I am happy with the adjustment they give me over stock.

    Sato anything is top of the line for these bikes! The ability to adjust them is definitely key!
