gilles tooling as31gt rearsets

I finally got my gilles rear sets from germany and these things rock. Major adjustability, smooth movement of levers and more effective rear brake application. I also think that the throw of the shifter is shorter.

Nice! Which distributor did you get them from? I had a set of Gilles on my old RC51, they were nice.

very nice! Link? Price?

Do they have passenger pegs? I only ask as I have to re-adjust my exhaust mount options if I change rear-sets...looking for options.

I ordered from gilles directly. They were just over 500 bucks. No passenger pegs available. Exhaust mounting would be hard on these guys. My only idea would be, the rear m/c has some spacers inbetween it and the rear set itself so take one out and replace with a hanger.

Awesome, thanks! That's what I would have to do...I have a cf shorty can, so not a lot of weight on it at all...

I might be able to fab something that would mount directly to the exhaust right below the rear set...that just might work.

I bet mine is even lighter...it can't be more than 2lbs. But I don't have it attached at the center stand, so.......

Maybe that's the best route, to get something fabbed up down there.

Yeah i had a hanger and spacer made for the stock mount point under the transmission so no need for a hanger on the can.
