Adjustable rear sets on R6? More comfy?

I'm looking for ways to reduce the leg/ballsack pain when riding my R6 longer than 45 min. I stumbled upon this product:

Racing Rear Sets Adjustable Rearset Fit Yamaha R6 06 15 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 | eBay

Does anyone have experience with these adjustable rear sets, and can you tell me if they're worth it?

These guys may have a solution: http://www.valtermoto.com/

Look in the rearsets section for "Drilled plates". They allow you to adjust the position of your stock rearsets. I read that guys flip them upside down to get a lower peg position.

My question was whether adjusting the rear sets is an effective way to reduce pressure on my nuts and knees, not whether the product in the link is of quality. I posted that link just as an example of what I'm talking about.

Adjustable pegs will help a little bit, but its not really a cure for the problem. Seat height, bar position and just general ergonomics/geometry of the bike are meant to shove you down on to the tank. The R6 (especially late models) sits the rider "on top" of the bike as opposed to sitting down "in" the bike which is great for performance but not so much for comfort.

If you are set on making the bike "comfortable" i would say you need to get an aftermarket seat, lower the pegs a bit, and get some LSL super bike bars or something that raises the stock clipons. Personally, I've never had great success in making a super sport a "comfy" bike simply because the bike's geometry and angle/position of the seat is designed primarily for the track.

Most rearsets (including the ones you posted) make you LESS comfortable, not more. What you linked will 100% without a doubt increase discomfort in your knee - and nuts (I'm not even sure why you're supporting your weight on your boys, but to each his own).

If you're looking for comfort, stay away from anything with "race" in the name. Stay away from the word "risers". You want rear sets that lower.

Remember, racers are only on the bike for 20 mins at a time, and could give two craps about how comfortable they are.

You're trying to make one of the least comfortable bikes in history more comfortable. It's not an impossible task, but a difficult one. You might want to consider just getting a different bike.

The FZ6 has - literally - a retuned R6 engine but with much more comfy ergos. There are bar mods available if you want to make it more sporty, without sacrificing lower body ergos.

I've been running Chinese knock offs from EBay for 2 years now on my Ducati. They are fully adjustable, quality is great and the price is fantastic.

I've purchase shit products from the USA and China, always best to get an opinion from someone that has actually had experience with the product/seller.


For your bike this is the set I purchased for my Ducati.
