fermic.....First off thanks for all the pictures and the review! Think I might just have to order me a set. Wanted to ask first though......from your brief ride do they feel sturdy / solid? I can deal with a bit of vibration, as long as they are not flimsy feeling.

Thanks

I went for a 100 mile ride through the mountains last night. They feel great. And no real vibrations felt through my Sidi boots.

Just ordered a set for mine. Should be here tomorrow.

I'll post up my thoughts as well on the install and use over the weekend.

I received the rearsets, and when I opened the box, everything looked exactly like you'd expect. All the parts were well wrapped and protected, with nothing damaged. There are no instructions, so it took me a little while to get it done. This kit uses your stock brake light switch unlike some others.

Left side installation went pretty smooth. For normal shifting you do have to watch how you clock the shift lever. I wanted to keep the action from the rod as linear as possible, but the 1 o'clock position is about the best you can do and still have access to tighten the bolt.

Brake side took me a bit to figure out how to get everything apart and put back together. Thanks to Fermic37 for the heads up on using a washer to make sure the brake collar does not slip off the shaft. Take your time and figure out where you want your lever to rest. I misjudged a bit and the lever rests a tad higher than I'd like. I'll just have to redo the length of the spring to the brake light switch and adjust from there.

Overall, they are a good value. Function just like you'd expect. Pegs have a decent knurl to them, and work well with my riding boots. They have a minimal amount of flex to them, and is not an issue. I agree with Fermic37 that the hardware is first rate. No stripped heads while installing.

Out riding, I was finding my shifts were very positive and had good feel.

Tip of the hat to David at VCycleNut! Solid value in rearsets for the money, and he got them shipped out quick! There may be better rearsets out there, but they are nowhere near this price point. I'll recommend them.

I didn't bother with pics, cause Fermic37 pretty much has that covered.

I talked to David and he requested measurements for the OEM stud that goes through the brake plunger to give to his rep. So we will see if lextek changes their design at all.

Got them today. All looks good but I can't figure out where the silver colored dog bone shaped piece that was in the bag with the bolts goes.

Hey they function 100% fine without it. I assumed being Chinese it was for another bike and they just threw it in there.

I finished putting them on today. I honestly don't know where you had an issue with the brake plunger and the new shaft. I just slipped on a 6mm washer and then the C clip, no problem. Adjusting the brake lever travel and light switch is where I spent an inordinate amount of time. Finally I removed the eccentric adjuster and all works fine now. I noticed that the lever return spring is lighter than stock so time to get reacquainted with how much less pressure to put on the lever.

The shift side went on without any issues.

My long legs are going to enjoy the extra space.

There isn’t really an issue. But the shaft should be the same diameter of the hole.

That's weird because mine was almost the same size maybe a half mm smaller.

Ooops, I wrote down the wrong measurement. The ID is 2mm larger not 1mm. However, it works and adjusted well so it's really not an issue as long as you place a 6mm washer in front of the C-clip.
