The aftermarket ones are usually rigid also and don't fold.
Generally with the extra clearance they provide you don't have issues with dragging the pegs. Plus although they aren't sold as such, they will sometimes help cut down on damage in the event of a low-side as they will act as somewhat of a frame slider. At Barber in October one of the guys went down in turn 5 on a ZX-10. Between the frame sliders and the Sato rearsets the damage was minimal. Only had to replace a footpeg bolt that bent slightly and he was back the next session.frij0l3 said:
OK, I'll ask, why?
It seems that even if you are going for extra clearance (moving up and back) why not still be "fold-able"?
Just curious as to why they are rigid...
Seen many bikes start tumbling after catching a non-folding footpeg also. If a bikes gonna tumble, its gonna tumble.ducati_atx said:
Sliders have a tendency when someoen hits the grass to launch the bikes over
causing damage from on both sides. (obviously there is alot of room for argument
and debate on this one... but its personal pref)
