Rearsets - Looking for input - May 26, 2009, 02:47 PM

My next upgrade will be rearsets. I'm torn between Woodcraft and Vortex. The Woodcraft are about $100 cheaper than the Vortex.

I'm looking to have a more aggressive riding position as well as more confidence my foot isn't going to slip off the peg mid curve.

Thanks

Both are good, Vortex looks better. I like Woodcraft because they are cheaper and just as good plus the individual parts are cheaper.

This is why I went Woodcraft over Vortex.

I've had both. Both are good, but Woodcraft more durable. Cheaper too? Not a tough decision.

I like the Sato, but repair parts need to be ordered.

Is there any difference in "feeling" between the Woodcrafts or Vortex? My Satos are extremely smooth and the shift throw is about 3/8".

Big money. If you're looking to save money, don't go with Sato. Mine are Gilles because I love the knurled end of the peg. I wouldn't suggest them since money seems to be a concern.

Sato is the way to go!


Everytime I get on my bike I tell myself, "I'm going to chill, go the speed limit" How long do you think that lasts for? Exactly!
Blame it on my short term memory!!

I use protek on my bikes for the track. Lightweight and I like the feel, but basically disposable b/c they are not really repairable. When parts bend/twist, I have not been successful in bending them back w/o snapping. I have also had woodcraft and they are not bad - durable and easier to whack into shape in a pinch.

If you are shopping for a street bike go with whatever you like the looks of best for an aftermarket set. Their set ups are really similar for ergo.

If you are replacing stock rearsets b/c you are dragging pegs remove the curb feelers if you haven't. If you are on a CBR F4i or something slow down b/c even if you replace rearsets your can is gonna hit soon and that is bad. Not on an older CBR and still dragging pegs on the street consider a trackday after you replace the rear sets.

Good call on the mod. Stock pegs suck. The grippy feel of aftermarket rear sets inspire confidence. I like Woodcraft.

Arata, all the way. I heard that they're real close to the Satos though. On the brands that you've listed, I'd go with Woodcraft. I heard the vortexs flex and will destroy your boots.
