Upcoming review on Lextek Rear sets

I was messaged by Vcyclenut about a newish product he is selling. Its another Chinese company that is making rearsets and other accessories for motorcycles called Lextek. Weary about anything cheap and Chinese he assured me they were of good quality and build. He offered me a discount to try them and test them on the FZ1, since he hasnt sold any kits for thit application yet. He said if I feel they are inferior he would refund me my money. So I will do my best to give an honest review for those looking for another option other than Danmoto or more expensive options. They also have a 1 year manufactures warranty.

I should have them on by the weekend.

I sent him a message yesterday and said he was sending out a set to somebody to try them. Guess that would be you. Asked him if the shift rod went thru the frame and he couldn't tell me that. Hopefully it does as it seems like a nice piece.

Currently have the Valter Moto ones that go thru the frame and were bout the same price but didn't have provisions for the rear brake switch or heel guards.

twas me.

He messaged me again last night, he thought he had an FZ1 set in stock, but he did not. He said it would take a few more days to get them, and he would refund me my money if i wanted. But i already have my hopes up so ill just install them next weekend instead.

I was curious about the shift rod and brake light switch also. We shall see!

I'm curious as well. I might be interested if they are of decent quality and the install is not a pita.

Take your time installing them and use Loctite where applicable........................................ .........................don't need to crash test them. Only issue I ever had with the Chinese stuff was soft bolts, i.e. couldn't get them locked down without head stripping. That was on my Tuono, either that or my eye talion girl didn't like Chinese parts.....................

Best of luck, watching for your report.

Looks they mount with countersunk bolts. From what I remember about the foot pegs, this will take away the rubber mounts that were present on the factory pegs.

Let us know if you experience increased vibes felt through the foot pegs.

I already did the washer mod for my foot pegs so the vibe issue should be a non issue. He is at least honest about the assembly and loctite on his website.

I'll have a set of nice real carbon heal guards for sale shortly if these work out.

If these are less than what you are expecting give Mike a call from Wicked Racing here in Altoona. He sold me a set of vortex rearsets for a very fair price. I can vouch the fit and function of them are awesome. I have a hard time with cheap Chinese for controls, I buy them like my life depends on them because....

Well these shipped today so we shall see! If they aren't quality I assure you I'll send them back since I'm anal. Most likely not buy any other ones till I find another deal on used ones on eBay or here since I really don't want to pay more than $200

They are here!

Came in today, so i went home for my lunch break and threw them on quick. Install is pretty idiot proof, only took me 30min. All the hardware is nice, and not at all soft like i expected. All the tolerances are very tight.

The shift rod is indeed on the outside, but i dont mind it as much as i thought.

Only issue (not really an issue) is that the ID of the rear brake plunger is about double the size of the OD as the stud that it mounts too, and its only held in from side off with a little C clip. Both can easily be fixed, by ether using a bushing, a larger stud, and threading the stud and adding a nut.

Ill fully install them and test them out through the weekend.

LOL i did, i got the two sets of pics reversed, dangit.

Not sure on the shift. I just threw it all together. I know there are a few ways you can mount the shift rod points. Ill tinker with it more after work.

All buttoned up. Lots of loctite. Went for a quit mountain rip. They feel great with minimal vibration. Shift is normal. If you want any detailed close ups just ask.

Here's what I imagine the review should look like:

"They are metal. They look good. They work as intended. They are cheaper than similar. I would buy them again."

what else is there to say?? I think he just wants to take more pictures of his pretty bike.
