Rizoma Rear Sets

Hey Guys,
I find that riding my 919 with stock pegs gets a little uncomfortable. At high speeds the wind tries to peel my legs off the tanks. it's fine for short trips but gets tiring for long ones. I usually end up resting my feet on the passenger pegs.

I'm just wondering if the Rizoma rear sets move the pegs back far enough to increase riding comfort? I've heard they move the pegs back about 3" from stock.

I'd just like to hear some thoughts before I drop $600

I love mine. Up and back quite a bit. If we go riding this spring/summer you can try mine out.

They look beautiful, but are the Rizomas' as sturdy as the Sato's? and damn, that price is high!

Quit converting between Euro and Pounds, it confuses us Americans.

99 pounds for a solo set of rearsets sounds "too good to be true."

Leave the Kiwi alone.

Hate to bring up the china knock-off option again but they're churning out some pretty nice looking rearsets too now... can't comment on the quality but the price is right.

Mostly to fit type-R's like R1, CBR's and GSXR's but something's gotta fit the 919 with a bit of adjustments here and there.

Here's the linky. I've been in contact with them and they are British made etc pegs are set back and up one inch (25mm). On my wish list! Maybe we need a group buy!
Plus I need to check the legal aspects in New Zealand of running a double seat and no rear pegs - they can get anal about stuff like that down here!

You'll need a hydraulic brake switch or make a adaptor for the stock one.

Hey - one question for those running rearsets I was thinking of last weekend - does the rearset peg get in the way of finding the side stand?

Rizoma stuff is beautiful! My bike came with Sato rear sets and both 'look' to be about the same quality.
The Chinese knock-offs look pretty nice - and the price seems very affordable.
I've been looking at the DePrettoMoto parts for a few years now - GORGEOUS STUFF! I just could never justify paying the same price for shipping and tax as what I was paying for the actual part! BUT... my friend is coming over from Italy this weekend and bringing me some black anodized DPM goodies! No rearsets, but if I had more time before he flew out, I could have probably worked something out for you.

Sounds good! Hopefully we can meet up. My buddy is coming back from Idaho with an '03 so we'll have one more 919 to add to the pack

Not bad from PJsParts... only $480 or something. Easily $800 here in Banada.

OK, those look REALLY good.... so if I could find them for the 919 I would be STOKED. Who is selling Chinese knockoff rear sets?

DMP linky:

deprettomoto.com - Item details specifici for bike HONDA - HORNET 900 - Control kit "ALUEXTREME"
those track day ones look ok but not adjustable

Those DMP units look awesome but are just as expensive as the Rizomas... maybe more actually...

You know! If we could get someone to machine some adapter plates we could easily make those china rearsets fit our bikes....

Like a CNC mounting bracket for these:

Oddly enough over Xmas I looked at them and though the same - I could fab up an adaptor. But then I looked at them and did some rough measurements that implied that with a adaptor the pegs would be moved a long way back - too much possibly.

I also though you could make an adaptor for the stock unit to set in back/up and retain the passenger pegs.

So I did nothing!

Most rearsets only move the peg a inch back and up - multi adjustable ones don't move more than 2 inches back.

And I asked yesterday - in New Zealand to get a motorcycle warrant of fitness if I have a dual seat I need passenger pegs - a body panel cover over the seat is OK for rider only rearsets. Bah.

That is irritating. Good old nanny state, keeping us safe

Thankfully they don't bother us with garbage like that here in Kanaduh

I'm running a set of coerce rearsets and they kinda get the way of the stand. Requires a bit more effort to snag the stand with your foot to put it out.

Anybody run those rearsets from that ebay link? Very curious. I was going to make a thread for perhaps a group buy.

there is nothing that will fit the 919. Custom support brackets would need to be machined.

Haven't interacted in months but am back and wondering why no one is mentioning Vortex. I know LDH hates their sprockets but wondering if anyone is running Vortex rear sets?

Per Vortex' website, they don't make them for the 919.

Gilles , Sato and Rizoma seem to be the only options I see.

Wow just called the shop and he said Vortex and Gilles, so I'll swing by there after work.
Thanks,

Wow... Vortex is expensive but they make really nice rearsets! Irritating that they don't make anything for the 919.

Yes, they look nice.
And I hear that if you bend them, good luck getting them straight without breaking them.
Unlike Satos and some others(or Woodcraft for that matter, but they do not have a 919 listing and likely never will).

I was doing some searching here and read this thread. It covers some good options for rear sets. I noticed that the WR, Coerce and Moriwaki rear sets are not mentioned as other alternatives. However, passenger pegs may be an issue.
