Rear Sets (preliminary R&D)


Recommended Posts

There's LOTS of established outfits offering rearsets for popular bikes. What could I possibly bring to the table?
If you're looking for simple Up and Back by N inches, SVRace-Shop and other guys have adapter plates to choose from.
What I would like to offer is a design that is clean, simple and re-uses as many commonly available aftermarket parts as possible, to include the OEM shift and brake levers if they are the type the pivot on the same axis as the footpeg.

I have seen a version that used an intermediate crank to change the angles and 2 actuator rods.

Go forth and modify my son...go forth and modify...
