Question Need opinions on rearsets and levers

Ok, so I'm in the market for aftermarket rearsets and shorty levers, but as you guys know theres a lot of maunufacturers out there for these things. I can't tell just by looking at 'em which ones are worth the money and which ones aren't

Who's got which brands of rearsets and levers, and how do you like them?

For rearsets its between:
CRG, Gilles, Sato, Vortex, or Woodcraft

For levers its between:
ASV, CRG, Pazzo, STM, or Vortex

I have Pazzo levers and they are nice. They don't have as many adjustments as the ASVs. If they had them in stock, I would have gotten the ASVs instead.

I just installed my vortex rearsets and they are awesome over the OEM rearsets. They offer a ton of gripping, but I've heard they eat through your soles. I swapped out the rearsets but did not realize you need a pressure switch to activate the brake lights. It was an extra $25 from Motorcycles Unlimited.

My two cents.

For rearsets its between:
CRG, Gilles, Sato, Vortex, or Woodcraft

lets see all have pros and cons

Woodcraft - cheap and hold up great.. not to much adjustability. I have them on my track bike and will probably be changing them in the off season
Vortex- 325 bucks or so parts are easy to come by tons of adjustability but heard they will wear your boots out pretty quickly
Gilles- Expensive but have a great design tons of adjustability and easy on the boot. I would say a good mix between adjustability of vortex and grip of woodcraft
CRG- Never seen these and dont recall seeing these at the track.
I would probably try the gilles out if money isnt to big of an issue
just my thoughts good luck keep us updated

For rearsets its between:
Sato, Vortex, or Woodcraft, with my vote going to Woodcraft.
It's a shame Attack doesn't offer any rearsets for our bike because imo they are the best on the market.

For levers its between:
CRG, or Pazzo, with Pazzo offering the best variety and durability for the price.

We're often competitive with the internet on parts pricng, so give us a shout bedfore you order anything.

I have vortex now they are comfortable, due to the adjustability, thinking about trying some Gilles, want to pick up some pazzo levers hear nothing but good things a bout them, as well they are affordable.

I've got Pazzo levers, they're real sturdy and have plenty of adjustability, and I can testify to their crash durability, lol. I have installed Gilles on my streetbikes and racebikes, and although expensive, VERY adjustable and HIGH quality. Also, they offer lots of spares to replace without buying a whole new set. Vortex would be second on my list. Can't go wrong with either!

FWIW, Gilles typically don't crash well (I've seen an F4i shatter it's mount by falling off a rearstand) and spares are very difficult to come by.

My Gilles have done really well in crashes, both low and highsides (tumbles on the latter). All I've had to replace is busted footpegs on them...and LP USA always has spares when I need them.

Consider yourself fortunate.
Try getting parts for the VCR38GT rearsets.

Yeah, I've heard stories about those, still use the AS31GTs for exactly that reason...
