love the look of sato's, not the fit

so, i intalled black sato rear set's about a week ago and i'm just not happy with the results. i don't know if i have a weird shaped body or what, but i'm just not comfortable with them. put the stock ones back on and i'm much better off. going to offer these to you guys before i put them on e-bay. what's a good price? almost forgot a potential question, no passenger pegs.

Really now, how old are they? Did you get them new? Value is up to you and the potential buyer. List them for what you would like to get for them and see. Only you know what you paid. We will all be watching the for sale section I am sure.

Before you dump them for a loss are you sure you've given them a fair trial? Have you tried all the different adjustment settings and done more than just ride a few miles at a time? I know when I put on my rearsets (Rizomas not Satos but still...) it took awhile before I was totally comfortable with them. Also took trying several different height and fore/aft settings and fiddling with the shifter/brake lever adjustments until I found what felt right. Also had to rethink my riding position and relationship to the handlebars, but once I got the adjustments just right and logged some miles I loved them.

I can hear all you guys salivating over a sweet deal on Sato rearsets cursing me, but that was a serious investment and IMO a week's trial isn't nearly enough time to get new rearsets dialed in and decide if you like them or not. If I were you I'd put some miles on them first, mess with several different settings, and give them every chance to grow on you before giving up.

Did you try loosening the Y while lining everything up? Never heard of such a thing with Satos (I have a set also & did not have this expierence).

rokon, can you tell us 'how' they feel different to you than stock? Too high? too low? too far forward?.... As mentioned above, did you try different positions? I put my Satos on 1 position too high and it felt like my knees were up under my chin. I rode it that way for a few days to see if I'd get used to it - I didn't. I lowered them one position (lowest) and all was good.

I know a lot of people would love to get a great deal on barely-used rearsets, but I'd hate to see you go back to stock just because you haven't tried all the available positions.

Let us know, we're here to help.

The lowest position is 10mm Back 20mm Up, not much of difference over the stock pegs.
Maybe it's the lack of a rubber foot peg and the actual peg size being smaller. Just guessing...

20mm up doesn't sound like much, but it's fairly noticable to me. I mean, the difference isn't huge of course, but the stock position is certainly more comfortable for commuting/touring.

Here was a pic i took with the Sato's in the lowest position on the left, and with the stock (with CBR peg) on the right:




I actually wish there were more horizontal settings with the Sato's; like being able to adjust the pegs further back without increasing the height. for example, 20mm up and 30mm back would have been nice to be able to do.
