    WTB Rearsets

    OK,

    So I'm getting a little tired of my little rubber footpegs....so I'm in the market for some decent rearsets.

    Anyone have suggestions on where I can get soem rearsets for less than $300? It seems everywhere I look, I only see $300 sets. That's almost a new exhaust system.

    Can anyone please help? Maybe I'm just being a scrooge but I just think that $300 is way too much to move your foot pegs up and back about an inch. Are there any alternatives like adapter plates?

    Thanks all.

    You can make a set of plates with some aluminum plate pretty easily. There is a picture and small write up on Greg Dunn's page.

        Thanks, I'd like to think that my many years of lurking on different message boards was helpful.

            I found a pic here


            Custom Rearset plates. I hand made these, they are 4 position adjustable. The left one has an integral chain roller. They are 3.8" 6061 aluminum and a very strong.

              Anyone know what footpegs are stuck in there? They look just like the emgo ones i passed up on at the track $22 for the pair
              They would have needed a fair amount of grinding for them to fit though.

                I am most likley going to be designing and manufacturing some rearsets for the hawk...I have waited quite some time for the hiperform varants to become a reality and still nothing, all respect given to Rod...but i cant wait forever..i even offerd to quote him on making them for him, (i am a machinist with 6 CNC mills at my disposal) and i know we could have been competative because i would have ran them on my own time so that takes a chunk out of the labor costs, but , that being said, i have heard nothing...so...I have a nice brand spanking new install of SolidWorks on my home PC and i will be working out a prototype very shortly ...I plan on the works...

                Cartridge bearings
                Anodizing will be available...im doing mine in black
                I plan on using Vortex's aggresive style pegs....if they are workable, if not i can make them myself, just a bitch to setup the Haas rotab...but doable.....

                I may have a working 3D rendering by this weekend, and you guys can give me some feedback on key features you would like to see.....I dont wanna spend 300 bones on rearsets when i am perfectly capable of making them myself...hell if we can make this >>>>

                    has theirs for $209. They came with great instructions and fit great. It's worth spending the money unless you want something extreme. 1.375" up and 1" back - you'll have to go pretty deep to scrape those pegs! Worth the money. I think they make them to order, though as it took them about 3 weeks.

                        Only thing I don't like about woodcraft is you need the stock levers. My levers are old and busted and I wouldn't want that stuck on shiny new cnc'd aluminum. Also my buddy went down at the track and bent up his woodcrafts, I think I'll use cheap plate to move the stock rearsets up and back, then if I go down the plate gets bent not the rearsets

                        On that note, anyone know about a good replacement rear brake lever other than the $70 stocker?

                        And bump the question about footpegs, I think I'm gonna try to make some out of alum tube and grind to fit.

                          I have a couple lil 2 brothers plates that move the stock pegs up and back.

                          Maybe I can find a picture...

                          I run Woodcrafts though, Wrecked, they bent and I bent them back to shape.
