Rearset recommendations for shorter riders

Hi,

Any short riders out there who have any recommendations on rear sets? I'm 165cm or 5ft 5in and currently have the Rizoma rear sets which came on the bike when i bought it. Seem fine but I feel that my knees are still not contacting the tank in the seated position. Was wondering if I should be looking to get a set which raises my feet higher.

Regards,

Yoshi

Lightech has a good bit up upper adjustment. As well as other directions.

I believe SATO racing offers the highest and forward adjustment in the market.

I've had DP sets, CNC and SATO.

I love both DP and CNC quality but still not high enough and also sits back like the stock so your knees will not be close to the tank.

SATO quality is good. I think CNC quality is better but because of adjustment, I stuck with SATO.

SATO also has good supply replacement system so if you break something you can easily replace whatever parts you need. I live close to their shop and visited them few times. Good people.
Thanks from Twistedracer and tteitei
