I did call and talked to Donovan about the deal, it seemed to be pretty legit. I have heard alot of people that use them for all of their parts.

what were the reviews regarding exactly? Fit, Finish??? what were the complaints about?

When I purchased from them just a few weeks ago, the only issue I had was they were somewhat slow to communicate and ship. 2 weeks to get my stands.......FWIW

Joe Browning and his crew at S.O.A.P. are some of ,(if not the best) parts suppliers you will ever deal with. They are totally straight up and very knowlegable about some of the most off the wall stuff you can think of. Danno can tell you how to stuff a CRF450 into an Ride Smart 125 frame for 's sake! You will not be disapointed and be sure to mention LMS and myself recommended you. Yes SOAP is a sponsor of mine, but I used them for two years before that came about. I won't get aftermarket anywhere else. Good people!!

not a good idea IMO :nono:

On something like rearsets I would recommend keeping them. If you happen to crash and your rearsets bend or break to an unusable point, you're pretty much done till you can get some new ones or somehow fix the ones you just busted. If you keep the OEM ones however, you can replace the busted one for the OEM, and keep riding without having to wait to get another set. Same goes for clip-ons. I take my OEM rearsets with me to the track because you never know when something can happen and then u happen to ruin your day because you fell and only broke a footpeg and now you can't ride the rest of the day. I've seen it happen. Just a suggestion/opinion.
