    Rearsets on a triumph

    Well, I was considering doin some nice sets on my triumph, but one thing I noticed... how the hell do you crank the bike up? it looks like they sit right about where the rear pegs are at, but then if you look at the rear pegs, they are right in the way of the swing of the kickpedal when you fire it up... so how does this all work then? thanks for the help

    Hey Dynamite,
    Typically rear sets are fabricated using folding type footpegs so that the kickstarter swings clear. Short of folding footpegs you'd have to 'run and jump' every time you wanted to fire it up.

    or, ive seen a cool folding kickstarter on a guzzi i think it was. it was a kickstarter originally from a suzuki i think. it folded in such a way that you could fold it out to clear the peg i think. then it folded back up to keep from sticking out weird while your carving.

    just a thought from another point of view! man, everyone wants rearsets huh??
