Couldn't find any threads rating rearsets, so if you guys know of one could you kindly re-direct me? Thanks!

Otherwise, what rearsets do you guys run with? I've got Moriwaki on my RC51 and they are amazing, but they were a very special gift and I don't even know if I can get a set for my 600.

What's the general consensus around here? Sato? Woodcraft?

Tell me of your travels, gents!

overall best bang for the buck is vortex, thats what i got and works excellent. the woodcrafts are about the same price but they dont have as much adjust ability as the vortex. disco at cycle sector sells them for the best price, under 300 bucks like 260 or 280

:+1: but I really loved my Arata rearsets. Those were amazing!! I bought them for $400 from apexracing on here a year ago.

"best" is kind of subjective.

I'd stick with vortex because the parts are easy to get get and they are cheaper than the rest. Driven, CRG and Gilles have pretty cool looking rearsets if your looking for that kind of thing. Woodcraft are more utilitarian and in some cases still use the stock shift lever.

:+1:i also have arata's on the track machine and i like them. lots of adjustability. just stockers with GP style pegs on the street machine. would like to throw a set of vortex sets on it tho. :cruising:

My vote is for Gilles.

Pros:
Nice adjustablity
Can run GP shift
Beautifully machined
Sweet CF heel plate
Interchangeable pegs
Hold up well in crashes

Cons:
Expensive
Replacement parts are hard to get
Instructions written in some kind of German/English hybrid language

Really though, the best are the ones you can get the best deal on...the classifieds are your best friend.

I would go with vortex. Nice finish. Footpegs have sharp tips which grip really nicely. I recently had a small lowside and my brake pedal got bent. I called vortex directly and i think they said the brake pedal was about $35 and scratched footpeg about $65. Not bad. I'm thinking i'll just switch the brake pedal for now.
