    Rearsets providing most leg room

    I'm a newbie to the Aprilia world, I picked up a very nicely appointed '12 RSV4, with Woodcraft rearsets. After first track weekend I know I could REALLY use more leg room. I'm long legged and not a youngster, wondering what rearset options provide the most leg room. TIA.

    Most rearsets are up and back only but Giamoto offers a comfort option that will give you approximately 3/4” drop. I recently installed these and I feel more in the bike than on it jockey like with less weight on the bars as well. I use my legs/feet to help turn the bike so now in and out of the corner easier than before. Simon at Giamoto was terrific to work with.

    Good advice. I've heard this also about Giamoto.

    I just sent them an email (also tried to call but number isn't working) asking for delivery time frame. So many online distributors will sell you parts that they don't have in stock, and require long lead times before arriving.

    Sato makes a lowering set for the Tuono which will work very well. I run them and like them quite a bit

    +1 to Sato. I liked them so much on '12, that I made them fit my new T '17 (which was not easy to do)

    I've got these lowering footpegs off ebay. Much cheaper than rearsets and adjustable down forward or rearward. I've found forward is much more comfortable for road riding.

    Yes i am,,,,,i have the gp shift set up and it required some additional stuff, but if you are going to use the stock shift pattern you will be good to go.

    Recently installed a set of Giamoto Rearsets. For the most part they are awesome, but definitely track bias. Anyone looking to purchase them with rather large feet (I wear a size 13 US) be sure and order the comfort/ extended peg option, or one of the folding peg options. I have the tapered race pegs and they are extremely short and stubby. It's fine on track, but I'd imagine long commutes would be a bit tiresome balancing these big hoofs on such tiny nubs.Click image for larger version.

    Thanks for the tip! If the stock ones don't cut it for me (i.e. suits me ergonomically), I'll be looking at the "comfort" option for sure.

    Good info on the stand here.

    Much easier to use by yourself than say a typical rear stand like Pit Bull. I absolutely love it. Makes working on the bike a joy. I ended up selling my Pit bull front and rear stands after I got this one. Unlike the Bursig it folds in half for easy storage, or transport to the track. At $360 including shipping from Germany it's also about half the price of the Bursig too.
