New User with rear set issues
Hi everyone I am new to the forum and this is my first post. I was in a recent crash and I am not yet sure how it happen but I know that my foot peg did not come back on the spring like it was designed to. Instead it locked in place, dug into the asphalt, and whipped my bike sideways then straightened me out which ended with the bike and I flipping head over heels. They were stock rear sets and I have leaned low enough to touch down before but they have always moved up with the spring. I still had a ¼ of an inch of tire to go so I am pretty sure that I did not take the bike past its limits. Now I am looking in to aftermarket rear sets to possibly reduce the risk of it happening again. However, when looking at rear sets I can’t tell which ones will be more reliable and safer than others. I have heard a lot of good things about SATO rear sets but if they are like frame sliders, will they potentially cause the same problem as my stock rear sets did when they locked in place when I leaned the bike?
I appreciate any advice given and thank you for your time and consideration
