Pricing looks very similar.
I used a modified Raask set-up on a track bike and frankly preferred the stock footpegs even for track use. The pieces bolted to the ear that supports the stock passenger pegs and resulted in pegs that were less solid than the original pieces. Was disconcerting to have the footpegs give a little when shifting your weight.

Stock airhead footpegs don't drag before the heads if you've got any kind of decent suspension on the bike. They're solid and they're not too badly located, imho.

imho, fwiw, ymmv,
