    What are "rear sets"?

    Just wondering what rear sets are and how much to get. It was suggested to me to get some extra if i'm looking at track time.

    I wish.
    Your footpegs and shifter/brakes.. they usually sit back a little further. They come in all shapes and sizes..

    At $400 that's not too bad...especially if you're going to be seeing a lot of track time.

    If you're doing mostly street riding, it might be a bit of overkill. Depending on how adjustable they are...you may ruin some of the comfortable characteristitics of your ZX-6R.

    If you're just looking at the odd track day then stick with the stockers. You've got a lot to learn before the footpegs become an issue.

    Besides even if you go for higher rearsets then the exhaust becomes a problem. It's all a package once you start modifying the bike. Do it all in a balanced fashion or for a specific purpose or it's just money wasted.

    A bike like your 6R is ready for the track in stock shape. Just a few adjustments to the existing systems will sharpen it up. After that just do what you need as you get better and find things that are holding you back.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.

    You might be able to get some rearset adapter plates for your bike. These relocate the stock pegs up and back by an inch or so. They are a lot cheaper than new rearsets.
