I've always used either Sato Racing or Gilles rearsets. It's not difficult at all to install them. I understand the Vortex rearsets are pretty good and much cheaper than the above two brands, but, in my opinion, Sato & Gilles are two of the top brands in quality, fit and finish. Really smoothes out the shifting.

What exactly do the aftermarket rearsets do
Rather than type it out, here's a description on a Set of Vortex ones at kneedraggers.com I copy and pasted:

Gives bikes the racing look and feel.
Improve ground clearance and enhances forward weight bias.
Design is computer-tested for strength, then CNC-machined from 7075 T-6 aluminum and given a clear anodized finish.
Rearsets can be made to use reverse shift pattern.
Available for Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha sportbikes.
Most Honda kits move footpegs 1" up and 1" back; Suzuki kits move footpegs 5/8" up and 5/8" back; Kawasaki and Yamaha rearset positioning depends on PART.
Rearsets do not include brake pedal spring.
Adjustable movement on most newer applications.

Adjustable rearsets allow you to adjust the footpegs up, down, back, forward, etc. I always adjust mine as far up and back as possible. I'm more comfortable riding in a "fetal" position. Plus, they are better engineered than the OEM shifter. They really make shifting much "slicker" and you can adjust the "throw" distance.
