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 hav minimal amount of flex to them, and is not an issue. I agree with Fermic37 e athat 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.
If the pegs move at all while you are standing on them for your victory lap that would worry me a lot. Think metal fatigue from constant flexing, and snap. But I could be wrong but I don't think so. I hope they work out for you guys.

I have not noticed any flex at all. Very solid under my girth.

You are not overweight Dave, I'm overweight, and it bothers me.

LOL You are a tall drink of water as they would say many years ago.

I am just slightly overweight, my doctor says I should be between 160 and 165.

Now about those rear sets. The quality is surprisingly good for the cost. The hardware stands up to the full torque (got to use Loctite). Adjusting is so-so on the brake side but solid on the shift side.

Impressions: I like the additional legroom and where it places me on the seat. The upper body lean angle is increased but not by much and it feels better than stock.

I noticed one thing that bothered me, the kick stand is hard to see in dim light and it is now right next to the shift lever. I used JB Weld to glue a cheap 10mm socket on the actuating lever on the kick stand. Now I can see it and not hit the shift lever with my size 11 boots.

Im surprised we arent doing gym selfies right now.


And agreed the kick stand is a pain to get to now with my sidi boots. But i have gotten used to it. Still happy with them for the money spent.

Considering the footpegs that the PO put on my dirtbike are $250 lol

How is the foot position compared to stock? Is it close or is the lowest position significantly higher than stock?

I have a set of Vortex but at the lowest position my old body wants even lower.

These looks good and thanks for the review.

Oh geez, I was 509 and 207lbs when I played rugby in college. I sit at a nice 185-190 nowadays. Never considered myself overweight, not going by the BMI numbers.

I dropped the bike going into the garage, no damage except for a scrape on the footpeg.
