Rizoma Rearsets?

Does anyone have experience with the Rizoma rearsets that PJ's Parts sells? I've been very pleased with the quality of my other Rizoma parts (mirrors, bars, grips, bar ends), and now have been bitten by the adjustable rearset bug.

I've read the multitude of posts praising the Satos and may well go that way, just want to fully research my options before spending almost $700 on rearsets and passenger pegs.

What about some of the other brands as well, anybody on here have anything besides Satos?

I don't have any experience with the Rizoma's, I just want to say that they look fantastic, and I have never heard anything bad about anything made by Rizoma.

They do look pretty trick and about the same price as Satos. Wish somebody had some input on them though, hate to experiment for that kind of money.

Can get carbon fiber heel guards too....oooh, more carbon fiber!

Here is a better pic if you haven't seen it (from a 599 but they are probably very similar)

I hadn't seen that pic, very cool. I think the rear passenger peg bracket looks a lot less heavy than the Sato, also appears to keep the rear peg lower like stock.

I like 'em. Kinda cool half moon footpeg for a touch more ground clearance.

Do they have different up and back adjustments? Do they come with a pressure sensor for the rear brake light?

They are adjustable, found this on the 1000RR.net forum: The Rizomas at their highest setting are 5mm above stock, with two settings below that, in 10mm increments. In their most forward position, they are 5mm farther forward than stock, and have three more settings going back, in 10mm increments.

Don't know if those same measurements apply to the 919 or not, if so I actually like that I could move the pegs back and down from the stock setting if I wanted, stretch out my 36" inseam.

Here's a write up from sportbike.net forum installing Rizoma rearsets on a FZ6, including pics. The stock brake light switch works in that application: http://www.sportbikes.net/forums/fz6...tallation.html

They also have the ball bearing linkage that everyone raves about on the Sato's...

PJ's Parts: These fully adjustable rearsets are the finest made. Ball bearings at every joint in the linkage makes shifting silky smooth.

MVagusta.net forum: I had a chance to install my Rizoma rearsets today. I did get to ride it down the block to make the needed adjustments . I did not expect the bike to shift differently, but it does. It actually seems a lot smoother and has a more positive response.

Here's Rizoma's website detailing the parts available: http://www.rizoma.com/Prodotti/Prodo...D_categoria=12

If I decide to take the plunge, I'd get the black solid slider pegs, as well as the black carbon fiber heel guards. I'll call PJ's first thing Monday morning and discuss all these questions...my credit card is already trembling

Allow me to add another option just to confuse you a little more. I always liked the Gillies Rear Sets. $550 at Wild Hair Accessories.

Ok, talked to PJ for a long time, great guy....ordered the damn rearsets. Got the optional solid round front slider pegs in black, carbon fiber heel guards, and passenger peg kit. $715, n/c shipping. Prices going up very soon, the dollar is sucking, at $1.44 per Euro.

PJ says the rearsets at their lowest and most forward setting about duplicate the stock pegs. They move up and back from there, maxing out at about 3" back and 2" up.

They also use the stock brake light switch, it just relocates to a different bracket on the back of the rearset. PJ says it's the only rearset he's found that keeps the stock brake switch intact.

Coming from Italy, should have them by the end of next week.

When you get them could you do me a huge favor and measure the bolt spacing for the passenger peg brackets? I have a set of the old style Rizoma rearsets that I got a killer deal on from E-Bay but I don't have the passenger peg brackets, the new style passenger brackets might work if the bolt spacing is right.

Thanks
Dan

I have a set, they are very well made, almost every surface is polished and beveled, fully adjustable. More gorund clearance and they sure look nicer than those chunky stock pieces.

Can't wait! Of course I always say that everytime I order something new, it's like Christmas all year round!

Can you tell I don't have any kids?

When I first got my 919 it had an older set of Rizoma's on it. I love the feel and the look. I had to swap them out for the Sato rear sets though for passenger pegs. The Rizoma sets are more comfortable by far but I prefer to have passenger pegs. That and I like the solid pegs of the Sato's. Them not folding up has saved a lot of damage to the engine

Just received my Rizoma rearsets from PJ's today. Beautiful pieces, great quality!

I got the solid slider peg option, looks very functional and matches my slider bar ends.

Unfortunately I probably won't be able to install them until after the Thanksgiving holiday since I'm going out of town. Gotta hate that, boxes of shiny new parts sitting untouched for a week!

Well, not enough time to install the rearsets tonight, so I entertained myself by posing them...







And best of all, the extremely detailed and comprehensive Italian instructions:

Fine looking components! You have a few extras (solid round front slider pegs and carbon fiber heel guards) that Sato does not offer.

I'm afraid my addiction will only get worse this winter as I spend countless hours in the garage staring at the bike, bored, unable to ride, dreaming up ways to spend more money.

Now if only we can get past this Thanksgiving week in Iowa so I can get back home and start wrenching!

Then I'm all done....just like you

Ok, maybe a couple more mods in store...next the header pipes come off and get ceramic coated, along with a bit more black powdercoating. Then I'm definitely done
