Why do they call them "rear sets"

I was looking at the Sato rear sets and can't figure out why they call the REAR sets.

They are the foot pegs and shifter/brakes for the rider, why would the be "rear" sets as if there were a "front" set.

BTW, they are DAMN expensive.

Rearsets move the riders foot position to the rear, and up a little. That is why they are called rear-sets. Simple as that.
Sato or Baby face rearsets are expensive. Made in Japan, very well built. For example there are bearings in the gear shifter and brake pedal mount shafts. There are second generation ones now. Some improvements to the pedal design?
I'm amazed that Sato still have the 919 on there list.
I would love a set. And would probably give my left nut for some.

The passenger pegs have been DISCO'd and are NLA, but the rear sets are still available for now. They really aren't too bad at about $450 as you are getting a very high quality product for the money spent.

I saw the adjustable set that was just the foot peg. I get that a "rear set" is the whole thing and well made, but what do you really gain above an adjustable foot peg?

I'd LOVE to have an adjustable foot peg. I get cramps in my shift leg and being down an inch or so would really help.

Kinda surprised adjustable foot pegs aren't more common.

Bearings instead of bushings in the levers offer a much more positive and smoother engagements and they are sturdy enough that if you get into a crash (or even a tip-over in the parking lot) the non-folding pegs work as frame sliders to help keep the bike off the ground.

LDH. $450, you got me thinking. And a bit more for shipping to Aus. If I sent a PM could you organize this? Probably go for a silver set.
Cheers.

Less than a week to get here, on the other side of the planet and a remote island.
Well done LDH. Can't wait to get them on. They look great.
Thanks mate.

Lucky dog...

Looks awesome, I'd like to know if the peg can be adjusted down and back. I'm looking for my leg to be lower, can't really tell by the pics.

Thanks Karl. Sometimes I do feel like a lucky dog!
These have several adjustable settings but only back and up. The first is 10mm back and 20mm up. Not sure if you can swap the footpegs out for those adjustable types. 10 back and 20 up is no real issue for me. I spend a lot of time when cruising with the front part of my foot resting on the pegs. Almost on my toes.
I've always disliked the play in my stock gear change lever, these are tight and butter smooth.
The instruction sheet says "designed for racing and is not intended for street use or stunt riding"… good luck with getting me to comply with that recommendation Mr Sato!

I'm having dinner with Mr. Sato this evening. I'll make sure he knows he cannot control your destiny

Got them mounted up today and went for a ride. These are great. Very slick. Absolutely zero vibration, I've had some vibration issues with the stock rearsets particularly the left. Pretty stoked about this.
Brake is good. Didn't bleed system before swapping banjo bolt for brake switch. Just lifted master cylinder above reservoir took old banjo out dropped new switch type in. Couple of pumps on the lever got the little bit of air out I put in.
The gear shift lever is just great. No slack or play. Gear changes are smooth, precise. I like this the most.
I've got the footpegs on the lowest setting. How they came. I'll probably leave 'em there. They are very comfortable. My legs aren't cramp at all. If anything it all feels better now, the tops of my thighs fit snug under the tank side protrusions.
Awesome kit.
