Unfortunately, you won't get your knees into the pockets AND be able to lean the bike over. I tried and tried and tried, eventually giving up and using a lower more stock height rear set. Sure, you can get them closer to the pockets, but in them is in my opinion not possible with standard aftermarket rear sets.
I'm not a fan of the normal aftermarket rear sets on the market today. They're all pretty much garbage in my eyes and the main reason is foot offset and multi-piece design. Most aftermarket rear sets push your foot away from the frame at least 20mm. This changes the leverage point considerably. Something some people might be able to get use to, but I tried and failed. The multi-piece design causes lots of complications when you crash. Things bend easily and it causes the screws to get locked in place. In my eyes, anything on a motorcycle that can't withstand a simple low side, needs to be made better.
I actually adapted some 916 corse style rear sets from slingshot racing to work on my 848 and they worked pretty well. They are a one piece design, no foot offset, just like the stockers actually. The only difference is that where the peg sits there is an eccentric that allows you to move the peg around 20mm in each direction. This works great because you aren't removing components to make it work, you're simply unlocking the eccentric, turning it and locking it back down again. These are the same pegs Ducati corse used for years and in my opinion, they're the only "style" of peg I'd buy. Very few companies make them and Slingshot racing's 916 corse style rear set was the cheapest alternative.
Edit: I for got about one thing… only one down side to my rear set idea… no linkage for the shifter lever. So you've gotta run direct shift, which is reverse shift. Takes a week or two to get use to, but well worth it in the long run in my opinion.
