Anyone own a 900RR?

Does anyone on the forum currently own one? Not a 929 or 954 but the original 900RR. Reply or PM me please. I'd like a couple of easy measurements off your bike

I don't have one but my old ride partner does. Not sure if the year matters but hers is a '97. I can call her to get what you need. The only person here I can think of is feron2800. (Sp?)

The rearsets. I know there are 4 known aftermarket rearset companies. Rizoma, Sato, MC Direct in Japan, and another company in UK. The last 2 not having so much adjustments.

Here are the two:

It doesn't look like it would fit... but what's keeping us from say taking the mounting bracket from Sato rearsets for a 919, machining one just like it but putting holes that would line up from a more inexpensive 900RR rearset?

So simply using a custom made bracket to fit the 919 but using rearsets made for another model like the 2nd picture below for the 900RR. Anyone want to try to see if they can work some machining magic? I have Sato rearsets still sitting in the box waiting for Spring time too...

*Edit: Major fail on the the 2nd rearset pic, they're mounted incorrectly. Goes to show the guys at the Chinese factory don't ride LOL

Someone from here had done that with 929 rear sets. I just can't remember who.

Looking further into the 900RR rearsets, it looks like they're the same for the 929 and 954 as well. Those DMoto rearsets are $190 shipped, so if the brackets can be made for not a whole lot, you'd have rearsets in the ballpark of $250 with the same adjustments as the $500 Satos/Rizoma.

Actually those DM reasets are mounted correctly. Just need to rotate them up. LoL

Anyone with access to a CNC machine want to give it a go? Not sure what it takes to get the measurements but I'd be willing to let someone borrow the Sato 919 bracket parts for a few weeks, long as they don't get damaged. Of course you'll need to order the DM rearsets to measure the distance between the two bolts and size they're using.

I envy your young and unwrecked knees.
Such pegs are absolute cripplers for me.
I'm having to raise the seat deck on the race bike and drop the pegs.
On the 919, between the stock pegs and higher Corbin, I'm fine.
I also think I get more leverage at the bars on the 919 with my feet lower on the bike. I think that's because I can get more leg power because my knees re not bent as much, especially the gimpy one.

I have a extra set of the large side frame covers from the 919, I was actually looking at them the other day thinking about drafting up an adapter bracket. Great idea!

Do it!! You just need the shape with measurements and drill the proper wholes for the footpegs and you're adjustable.

I don't know jack about machining but let me know if you need any measurements. I still have those Sato rearset sitting.
