Dumb rearset question

I like rearsets. I'm totally comfortable with rearsets. But the Thruxton is a little tight for me.

Knowing that the Scrambler has it's pegs a bit lower in the frame, would something like the Norman Hyde Scram rearsets give you Thruxton like, but with a touch more room? Or do they fit just like a Thruxton would?

I guess if I could get a similar position with the Scrambler as the Thrux with installing the rearsets and a Speed Triple bar, with the benefit of a touch more room at 6'3", I'd have a winner for sure. And an awesome base to make something my own!

Spent some time at Moto Europa in St. Louis over the weekend. What a place!!

I'm 6'3" with Thrux rearsets. I got used to them quickly enough, now I wouldn't want anything else.

It's a very good question, but I don't have an answer. Sorry.

Norman Hyde has a fantastic customer service department. Send them an email and they should respond with the info you seek.

I don't know how drastically different the LSL rear-sets are then the Norman Hyde's but I found with the LSL's and at 6'1" with a 32-33" inseam, they got really uncomfortable on long rides. Around town they were fine, but on the bike longer than a couple hours, and things just got too cramped.


On another note, looking at that picture of the Thruxton, I can't believe the amount of space between the headlight and the speedo/Tach cluster. Either it needs a D9 lay flat bracket or the headlight needs to be brought up.

its not ut about the rearsets. It has to do with bar position in relation to foot peg position. I had ace bars on my bonnie and you are really scrunched in the middle section. I changed to LSL rearsets and the riding position is awesome.

I've tried just about every different bar / peg combination from stock bars, ace bars, "M" bars, clip-ons, back to "M" bars, to superbars with each of these being with rear-sets as well as stock bonnie pegs. I ran thru all the bars with LSL rear-sets and back thru with stock bonnie pegs. The most comfortable I found was the stock bonnie peg position with Norman Hyde "M" bars. My issue wasn't unlocking the hips, it was unlocking the knee caps and I could only do this by ditching the LSL rear-sets.

I truly don't believe anyone's going to know what suites them best until they travel that road for themselves, there’s just too many variables.
