    rear sets or sometimes rearsets
    to set the pegs to the rear

    not being a dick, thats just what you're doing. its like changing the low forward stock position of the pegs to a higher more rearward position like on modern sport bikes and racebikes. the purpose is to allow more forward weight and more ground clearance

    The only stupid question is the one you don't ask.
