    Uncomfortable rearsets

    Any body using Gilles rear sets on their Mille, I'm using them on the bike but I find the brake pedal sits slightly upwards , other rear sets I've used on othe bikes the brake pedal hangs slightly downwards so it easier to use ' anybody else experience this with Gilles rearses

    I have Gilles sets on my Tuono (same as rsvr.?)
    Anyway, before I fitted them, I measured up the locations of the pegs and levers.
    According to my calcs, they are about 2mm higher than stock on the loweset setting.

    Yeah I definatly say they are higher than standard , I don't mind the pegs being higher but the actual rear brake lever is slightly pointing up , so to put your foot on the rear pedal you really have to adjust your own foot upwards a good bit to try and apply pressure to the pedal
