rearset options

do you guys prefer folding pegs on your rearsets or just normal straight pegs?

Double edged sword from my experience and feedback from guys (friends) who race.

1. A folding peg will allow some extra lean angle without unloading the rear suspension, as opposed to a fixed peg.

2. A fixed peg can afford extra crash protection, but may cause indirect damage to frame / frame tabs by biting into the surface: tarmac, dirt etc.this may lead to unsettling the bike more and generating more instability causing potential greater damage to the bike.

I currently have Sato rearsets which have fixed pegs and they are an excellent rearset, but I would honestly prefer folding pegs for clearance, as I have crash protection on my 999S.

I've had both and as said above, there are advantages and disadvantages to both designs.

Straight peg rear sets which have brackets that hold the peg are worthless. The pegs need to be held to something much more rigid in order to help withstand a crash. Otherwise, they can easily get caught on something and perhaps make the crash worse.

I kept a set of spare pegs in my tool box for track events, so when I crashed, I could simply replace the pegs. I ran rear sets made by Slingshot racing for the 916 series bikes with reverse shift, on my modern 848, just need to drill the holes out a bit larger. They were the best rear sets for me I found and very straight forward to setup. But at that point, its all personal preference anyway.

Me personally, I could go with either kinda like what Warp said.
Well - not really ANYTHING because the stock Ducati pegs are not only crap but to me they are DANGEROUS!!!

This is what I went with on my 1199 and have to say they are a bit too "notchy" and stiff - unless they are just that way until broken in good and hard. Time will tell.

Thx gents. Considering the folding ones. I'd like to add another factor. The vibrating factor. Maybe it's just how I position my foot on each peg. But I tippy toe on the pegs and by 30 minutes, my toes are asleep or feel like their asleep. is that just normal, does it happen to everyone or am I positing my feet incorrectly?
Is that a weird question?

do you have short legs, read short stature. Could be a circulation issue from the seat edge.
Edit: meant to add, that tight jeans around the knees will do this. Well did for me. Went to a looser fit, problem solved.

I've used both and prefer the folding now. They are a bit more expensive to replace but I've seen them survive a down with just scuffs where as others broke off their fixed pegs. Each did their job.

As for foot position, try placing your foot with the peg under your arch instead of your toes. Works great over longer distance. I use my arch when in a straight line and when going in to a corner I position the peg under my toes and press down on the inside peg to help in cornering leverage.

You should be riding with the balls of your feet on the pegs.

And Woodcraft rearsets are the best mod I've made to my 3 Ducati's. Well, maybe the Ohlins shock...but I'd suggest the Woodcraft stuff.

Ok, I only ride twice a week and so I finally tried yer advice and it is good. Tried the placement of my feet and looser jeans. Now off to get a fanny pack so I don't have to carry a back pack. Just kidding about the fanny pack.

If you're not carrying too much, try one of those cross the back bags. More manly than a fanny pack and easy on and off.

I bought myself a Thule (made in Sweden) cross the back bag. Has a broad strap and once adjusted comfortably & securely it is very stable on your back. Though a bit disconcerting to use at first, my being used to double strap bags
