  • I want the lowdown on REARSETS...

    Im getting some rearsets and I have been reading up a little on it.

    I want fully adjustable ones so right now it looks like Im going either with Attack or Gilles, but Im also interested in the ones that are not fully adjustable if its better bang for the buck, like LSL, Pro-tekk etc...

    So tell me what you know about these and what your experience with them are please.

    Do they flex a lot? How┤s the fit and finish? Have you "crashtested" them?
    And if you have pics, please post!

    I have the Gillies Tooling rearsets and love them but they did require some adjusting and work to fit when I flipped them for GP shifting. I changed boots and the profile of the boots was taller and I had to cut a bit off the shift linkage and retool it to screw into the other piece.....but the quality is excellent.

      I've got CFM rearsets which are really good bang for the buck.
      I have unfortunately crash tested them and they hold well.
      Bent a bit, but helped keep the rest of the bike off the ground.

                  Zero Gravity Daytona (I think they call it sport touring now)
                  That picture is from last year, I've got some white vinyl on it now that meets up with the white on the upper, looks really good.

                        What was the topic again
                        Seriously I'd say it depends on what you want.
                        If you're looking for something that's functional first Bling later, go for the less expensive. If you you're looking for a head turner go with something like the Gilles (not that they aren't fuctional too, because they are)
                        I didn't want to spend a bundle on rearsets, just wanted something a bit higher and further back and a reasonable price.

                          I have the protek rearsets, and they've held up very well. Were on the bike when I bought it, but I lowsided at 50, and went under a guardrail, severly bent the shift arm, and brake arm. Bent both main brackets into the swingarm, but a big pipe and a crescent wrench straightend them back out. Rode fine, lowsided in deep gravel again, and bent the left side one, and it bent back out again. I'd definatly get another set of em. The only downside I've seen sofar has been getting the shift shaft to operate smoothly without hitting the frame. Make sure you have the spacers between the frame and the rearset if you use these.
