rear sets

Has anybody tried these rear sets? Are they worth getting or would I be better off getting a set of Sato's.

I've never heard of them before, but the material thickness and general construction looks decent. The Buy It Now price is about $100 below retail, and as long as one of the three positions suits your requirements I'd say go for it and let us know what you think.
Here's the website:

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

Yea but the thing is I found a set of Sato Rear sets on ebay for 470 buy it now and was tempted by them. Only thing is I need to still have passenger pegs.

Ebay on the WR's isn't that great. I just found them online for 320.

I like 'em. . .I had a set of their solo non-adjustable rearsets (see BOTY pic) and I can vouch for their quality.

Like you, I needed the passenger option. I originally ordered the Rizoma rearsets, but I later decided the design was too intricate and over-the-top for what I wanted. On the other hand, the Satos are perfect simpler design. The design matched the my 9er's RC51 caliper mounts.

yea i guess the WRs are out of the question since they do not make passenger pegs. I know I saw once where someone had mounted GSXR passenger pegs to the frame, but wasn't sure how it would work. Satos would probably be a cheaper way in the end.

do any of you guys that have rearsets still have your original pegmounts laying around? I have a 36 inch inseam so the original position is good for me. But I ride strictly solo and would like to trim a pair of originals to eliminate the passenger mount. If anybody has a pair they might be interested in letting go of for cheap I'd like to have them.

thanks

This is what a trimmed down pair looks like. They were cut and finished by a machine shop then glass beaded.

Mike, that looks real nice.

I wonder if anyone has photos of just aftermarket pegs on their original rearsets on their bike, instead of a whole new rearset?

that is unfortunate. How did you like the replaced pegs? Were they worth it or should I just go get some Sato's?

Definitely much nicer than the OEM pegs. . .the cuts in the alloy pegs hold onto your boots unlike the rubber covered stockers. And the slash cut underside provides more clearance when cornering. On a budget, they are worth it. ---BUT nothing can compare to the $$$ aftermarket rearset's adjustability and especially their pedal's smooth and positive actuation.
