    Default Rearsets: advice needed

    I'm shopping after this last 3-day marathon. I'd like to not spend and arm and a leg, but I'll need adjustable sets. Opinions and recomendations please.

    Woodcraft for price and availability of spares. Limited adjustment.

    Sato and Gilles are sex and offer more adjustability, but $$$$. ...and good luck getting spares.

    that may be preference

    they both have ups and downs

    sometimes the non folding can dig in and cause your bike to start flipping and what not

    Sato Gilles and Vortex all have bearings in them and will NOT work worth a **** if even slightly dinged in the trailer. Woodcraft are the best rearsets for track bikes hands down.
    Plus TSBA gets a discount from R&T

    We also sell the Gilles etc, but the Woodcraft are the best ones for a track bike. IMHO

    also do you carry the attack rearsets?

    Shift and Brake Levers for some Rearsets are sold separately. Look below for details

    Attack Foot Controls are manufactured in Southern California from 7075 T6 aerospace grade aluminum alloy.

    Unlike low-budget 6061 - utilized by other manufacturers - Attack uses material rated at a tensile strength of 76,000 KSI (as opposed to only 42,000 KSI with 6061 grade material), making Attack Rearsets more than 50% stronger than other brands.

    Utilizing superior material with better weight-to-strength ratio enables innovative design to produce lighter, thinner foot controls without sacrificing strength or durability.

    A very wide range of adjustability accommodates any boot size, and permits the ultimate sweet spot for any rider to be dialed in quickly.

    Survivability - built into each model after extensive and rigorous on-track R&D - gives Attack Foot Controls the edge over the competition.

    Partial "breakaway" pegs are designed, in case of hard touchdown, to leave enough of the peg intact for the rider to finish the race.

    Quick-change pegs eliminate the need to remove the entire rearset in order to replace, with easily accessible peg release screws.

    Tightly sprung retracting shift and brake pedals virtually eliminate broken levers.

    The following bikes DO NOT have the shift lever mounted to the Rearset. The Shift Lever is separate and mounts directly to the shift shaft or some other part of the frame. These levers are sold separately for the following bikes:

    Ducati 848, 1098, and 1198

    dunno about discontinued, but they are sexy. Still highly recommend Woodcraft for track going bikes.

    Motowheels also sells inexpensive rearsets for the Italians under their own brand name, but their quality control has been iffy IME. That said, the owner made things right quickly (for me).

    Just a little clarification, most aftermarket rearsets have rigid footpegs. At least for me, they give a feeling of solid, secure footing. The folding pegs can some times fold at inopportune times leaving a foot searching for a home.

    The Attack Performance rearsets have a folding nub on the end of the shift lever and the brake lever. This is to avoid breaking them in a fall. Also, the last inch or so of the footpegs are cut so that the ends of the footpegs break in a fall, rather than snapping off the whole peg. Really designed for racers so that they are not out of the race in case a minor low side. These features probably don't make much difference on the typical track bike.

    I chose AP rearsets because they are solid, have a large range of adjustment, I got a good price, and the shift lever pivot point remains in the OEM poistion for my '08 CBR1000RR. I have seen more than one CBR owner cursing the aftermarket rearsets which moved the shift lever pivot point to the footpeg.

    All that said, you see a lot of Woodcraft products on racers. That is a strong recommendation right there.
