Recommend me some rear sets..

I have never ridden with anything other than stock rearsets, so I am used to their position, and feel. I basically just want to replace them with something better looking, yet maintain the factory position. Do all rearsets change this? What would be a good brand, that has quite a adjustability?

Most adjustable rearsets will let you maintain stock settings.

Vortex, Gilles, Graves, Driven, Risoma...take your pick If you are going for looks that too subjective to find on here

Driven Rearsets will be the highest end with the most adjustability, two types of footpegs to pick from, color options, but on the downside they are spendy.

Vortex rearsets will be your best valued rearsets as they are adjustable and work well. They get the job done at a good price.

Both are made in the USA so replacement parts are very easy to come by.

Vortex is great for the price and lots of inexpensive replacement parts

I do. They're very robust and I think they might hold up better in an off. Although as long as I had to wait for them I don't think replacement parts would be any easier to get.

Only aftermarket experience I've got are Sato, so I'm recommending... Satos

If you're on a budget, I've heard good reviews about Bohemian Racing. They look similar to Satos and are half the price.

I like and have used quite a few of the brands listed so far. I only advise that IMO Vortex is the worst I have used. Ive used 3 sets of Vortex when racing.. all junk. Like mentioned earlier Driven are some of my favs but pricey.

Motomummy has some wicked sales on several brands right now...

If you're on a budget, look into Bohemian Racing. Got a set on my track bike and even after doing a little bit of farming with it the rearsets held up well.

but to be honest the ONLY thing that broke was a clipon bar...so while you did some farming, it wasn't a bad down at all.
