    What are you using for rear sets?

    Hey everyone

    Just wondering what people are using for rearsets? My rear sets are stock, but want something a little different.

    Where can I buy some that can fit the hawk.
    Im in Canada, so if anyone knows of a place where I can buy them in canada or the US.

    thanks

      These are pretty cool looking. The price is more than the Woodcraft, but you do get a few extra pieces for them. http://tinyurl.com/2f3xc8

        I dont mind the position of the stock rearsets, but i'm sick of the ugly fat pegs. Does anyone know what other pegs to look for that fit with little fustration?
        Just to be different, i'm going to replace the 'wings' with either lexan or carbon, and remove the useless web between the mount points. I wil have to leave a 'tower' where the rear master attaches on the RH one. That way, I know all of the switches and springs will work.
        -I'm sorry....I did not know she was your sister.
        -If Buckleys cold mixture went rancid......how would anybody know????

          almost any other stock honda pegs fit in there..

          the ones in my stock rearsets are actually the passenger pegs from a kawasaki... they dont have that annoying bump sticking out from the bottom.. they're actually slashcut for clearance.

          i breifly worked at a motorcycle/scooter shop.. so i managed to poke around until i found some that fit... i dont remember what its from other then it being a older kawasaki.

            Honda ones won't fit unless you take a file to them. The have to be narrowed up to fit in the mount, and then the ears have to be shortened so they lay flat. It is simple, but kind of tedious to get it right. I had to file and install, remove, file, install, remove, file, install, several times until they fit right. Here is what mine look like. They are the standard Honda Sportbike pegs, the cheap ones. Cost $18. I also cut the wings down some, may go back and cut them all the way off.

              I took the stock passenger pegs off of my Hawk and moved them to the front. All you have to do is grind alittle bit from the back (totally obvious when you try to mount them).

              click on pic to see better

              they are about half the size and I wasn't going to use them anyway
              I like the pegs that bradrenea put on his bike better though

                thanks for the response

                Im actually looking to replace all of the stock rearsets, (pegs, shifter/pedal). Again, the cost of them would be a big concern.

                  they aren't cheap but woodcraft are well worth the $$ and have shifter, etc. if they're within your budget they're the ones to buy.

                    Thanks for the info on the pegs, I also like the look of the generic Honda sportbike pegs. I have used the passenger pegs before, but I also take my wife out riding if we get a chance.

                    Hawkgurl:
                    I hear the F2 stock rearsets are also a direct bolt-on. If you like the look of that, they can be gotten from the wreckers pretty inexpensively.

                        F2 rearsets don't bolt up.Early 900RR ones will,with a little grinding on the LHS.

                          Been in contact with Rod from Hiperform and he is relatively close to getting his rearsets back in production.
                          Apparently he was having trouble with the carbon fibre side of the production.
                          I think they are a little pricey but seem more substantial than the Woodcraft and also more adjustable.

                            Rearsets, etc

                            I'm currently using F4i pegs in the stock rearsets; as others have noted I had to file/grind the rearset bracket a little to make them fit, and I ground off the "ears". I just bought some 900rr rearsets (ebay) but haven't had a chance to try mounting them yet...I like the "drilled-out" looking scuff guards on them.

                            Bradnrea, your Hawk looks great! I'm curious about the tank, seat/cowl and pipe...where did they come from and/or how did you do that? I'll pm you as well, but wanted to mention it here.
