sato, FTW!

theres also arrow, harris, vortex, gilles, pro tek, and woodcraft.

I say sato. Cant go wrong with them, SUPERB build, easily able to get parts, but can be somewhat pricey, I think like 500, (so I know thats DEFINTALLY not cheap.)but you know some sites have deals. Which bike though? the f4i?
I think woodcraft is supposed to be pretty good and cheap

I have the ProTek's mounted on my F4i, replacement pair of pegs are about $40. Somewhat soft aluminum, left in polished form even though they advertise it being anodized. No fancy bearings or anything just shims and inserts... Snapped the heel guard completely off when trying to bend it back straight, good reason to practice my TIG.

Woodcrafts might be an option as well, replacement parts should be easier to find if needed as I don't think they use any part that's specifically theirs.

Their was a fellow manufacturing blocks that were drilled/threaded that you bolted on and allowed you to use the stock rear sets. The adjustment range varied but unfortunately he quit making them... (blocks were $60) IF you can wait Patrick might come up with something for his Christmas sales...

Seeing as you have a Brit bike, Harris (UK brand) probably makes some nice stuff for your bike. Woodcraft, too are nice. US made, lots of spare parts available...

Attack, Vortex, or Harris, in that order. I'm not sure if any of them offer them for your 675 though.

I've had mixed results, mostly negative, with Woodcraft, YMMV.

Are you touching down your pegs on the 675?

My boyfriend has the Gilles on his CBR600RR and is very happy with them. We also saw several at trackdays and some have apparently crashed and held up really well. Eric, did you take a look at them when you were pitted next to us?

Lucky you! I love the way they look. Too bad they don't make them for the VFR. The VFR's shifter is separate from the peg, which would require lots of customizing to get the Gilles installed.
