"Ebay" aftermarket Rearsets. Any war stories?

Hey...
I'm thinking Ebay aftermaket, asia rearsets.. I know, for 150$ you can get Vortex etc. I have a 07 project that needs so much love and parts that saving money on stuff is always welcome!!!

So have any of you installed "Ebay" rearsets on your 600 (pref. 7+)
  • From whom?
  • How does it work for you?
  • Is it compatable with "known brands" for parts?
  • Is there a vendor i should be looking at more than others?

Or just any other war stories from the rearset field... Seems that 2wheels levers are an ok alternative. I suspect there is a rearset replica on par with that.

Thanks!

There is a manufacturer, I believe it's called apex, that ratedRR turned me on to. For knock offs, they aren't bad and when held up to my set of vortex, it had me wondering because the machine marks were almost identical. Without the vortex logo machined into them, you wouldn't know the difference. All the parts were the same and the pegs are interchangeable . I ran them for a couple years without one single problem. Just my 2 cents.

Awesome, good price that's for sure. I did find a set of rear sets on Ebay that look identical to the v2 though
