SATO v STYLE & PERFORMANCE REARSETS???????????

Guys, are the Sato or S&P rearsets worth the money? I ask this before I sell my soul to the credit card demon & order them. I will have to order the pillion sets as well so any experience of either or both will be appreciated.

I bought a pair of sato's in order to move the peg position slightly up and back (the new position works well with renthal ultra-lows). The fit and quality is excellent, the service is first rate.

I would say that if you want them to adjust the riding position (functional), then its a good choice. If you want them for 'the look', there's probably a lot better things to get for 500+ bucks.

Try WR for a more economical solution. They also have passenger pegs.

Good call Mr B. Checked 'em out & yeah very nice, including the price. I noticed that the geometry doesn't compromise pillion foot position too much either. Think I'll give these a try. I take it they'
re made "in house"?

My understanding is WR are a Japanese performance brand. The quality is meant to be very good.

I had a good look on their website I have to agree the quality is definately there. The Tandem footrest photo shows them fitted to a 6 which doesn't help as I have a side exhaust. I need to find out that the rear footrest is no lower than stock. A little higher is no issue as I just fab' a longer bracket. Speaking of fabrication I'm going to follow your lead & make a tail tidy. High & tight as there's no under seat pipes to worry about. Now where did I put that empty cereal packet....

Good plan - mock it up in card first then transfer the pattern to metal.

yeah but

WR's description states: 02-05CB900/Hornet 900. What changed in 06 to make them not fit?

Whoa! I had been thinking about the WR's rearsets for quite a long time now, but never knew they had the passenger pegs available...

I used to have Sato rearsets, but I think I would actually prefer the WR's over the Satos because they bring the pegs much further back than the Satos do. I always felt the Satos were uncomfortable because they did not go back far enough.

WR's: Back:35mm / Up:35mm, :47mm/35mm, or :47mm/23mm

Sato's: Back:10mm / Up:20, :10mm/30mm, :20mm/30mm, :20mm/40mm, or 30mm/40mm


looks like they've uploaded a new photo of the WR's...




man, I wish I had known about these back when I was in the market for aftermarket rearsets for the 919...
