    Hawk rearsets

    28DD40BF-89CE-4901-9309-D103E6E4AA2C.jpeg I am building a race bike with a hawk chassis and have found that Vortex rearsets for a cbr 250/300R fit perfectly with very little modifications. We had to bore each hole about 2mm towards each other on the frame plate and use a slightly smaller headed bolt. I know what a challenge it can be finding something that works so I wanted to share. Good luck.

        Have you compared the peg position to the stock hawk peg location or to a woodcraft? Looks like it may be a bit forward from stock.. Cant tell from here though.

            I like to measure things when I do in depth builds, but to each his own.

            I'm glad it is comfortable. It may be a help to the community to know what the peg position is, as peg position is the main point of a rearset swap.

            Also, looks like your shock may be mounted up side down....

              I refer to this site for bikes and adjustments. I'll compare to bikes that I'm comfortable on.

              I'm sure it's been mentioned here a few times.

                Sorry I've not tripped across that site before now.

                    I pulled out the stock pegs and compared. Looks like the vortex are about 3/4” further back and, at the highest setting, 1” higher. Hope that helps!
