Rearset features

I'm not sure if this is against any rules, but I'll beg forgiveness later.

I have access to some pretty cool machinery at work, including a CNC mill. SO I'm going to make some rearsets for whatever bike I buy in the next couple of weeks. The only bike I've owned with aftermarket rearsets was my ZX7R with CFMs. They weren't bad at all, but if I'm designing the parts, might as well make 'em perfect

So, the question is, what design features would you want in a set of custom rearsets?

I'm gonna be making all kinda neat billet stuff in the next few months. Rearsets, clip-ons, upper triple clamp, muffler bracket, levers, maybe clutch and stator covers, etc. Should be a fun project

Great range of adjustability. Very durable (crash worthy). If they look cool, that's a plus. Function should be your #1 priority.

Good luck.

You gotta walk the line between too strong and too weak. Too weak and they wont hold up even in a mild 'down.'
Too strong and they will stand up in a crash, but maybe be so strong that they break at the attachment point to the frame...then youre screwed.

most stock shift arms will bend in when damaged but still have clearance to continue riding...Id make sure there are plenty of movement allowed in the mounting grommets(which will also minimize vibrations while riding.) Adjustability and even a quick gp shift set up is a nice feature.

As for the stator covers, have you heard about the lexan and LED covers? People cut out the center of the clutch covers and install a lexan glass, some put leds in it to make the lexan glow a light blue etc... then paint the outside ring where the allen bolts are installed. there are complete step by step write ups w pics on busa web sites if interested.

How much adjustability? The 3d models I've thrown together as a starting point have about 2" front to back and 3" vertically on one design, about 5" on another. The weak point in the design is at the tabs where they attach to the frame. 1/4" thick, about 3/8" wide aluminum. That should break before anything on the frame does. One good thing is that all of the parts are easily replacable, so I'll just make a few spares just in case.

LED covers? Yup, gotta see that

I'm heading out of town for most of a week in an hour or two, so no work will get done, but at least I'll be destressed when I get back
