choosing peg height for aftermarket rearsets

So, is there a recommended method for choosing where to set your peg height on aftermarket rearsets that are height adjustable? Go as high as you are a comfortable with?

I initially set my vortex rearsets as I high as I they would go to get extra clearance. This was a tolerable comfort wise but not great. My 2nd time at the track with these rearsets I tucked the front (40mph) and it got me thinking that maybe this far high setting was upsetting my body position or creating some handling problems for me based on giving me a bod position on the bike.

Just wondering how everyone went about selecting their peg height of if there is an "accepted" method for doing this.

I started them at the bottom rear since they're the most comfortable for me there, then gradually moved them up one notch at a time until my toes weren't scraping. They're 2 up from the bottom now.

To me, the common sense thing to do was to put the bike on a front stand and a rear stand and take a measurement from the floor up to the top of the ORIGINAL footpeg. After mounting the rearset bases, I installed the peg of the new rearsets on the first set of holes that were higher than factory pegs. I've never moved them and don't have clearance issues either. YMMV.
