Rearsets Rearsets Rearsets...

I'm looking to buy (2) sets of rearsets... not sure on what brand to get, since you all helped me soo much on the bodywork brand, I'd figure I'd throw these up for opinions as well...

So what do you LIKE/HATE about the following brands, please don't comment on brands you have no experience with..

1) Graves $699.99
- adjustable, GP, no grinding/cutting of the soles
X expensive.

2) CRG $566.96
- adjustable, dirtbike style folding clutch tip, miniature version of Graves.
X relatively new

3) Sato $519.00
- adjustable, GP
X ?

4) Vortex $400.00
- adjustable, GP, probably most common in CMRA/trackdays.
X I hate the way they grind/eat up my soles, I'm very heavy on the feet and seem to be going through a set every 6 months :(.

5) Woodcraft $340.00
- adjustable, GP, great experience with company, reasonably priced.
X - ?

6) Bohemian $220.00
- price! look just like the vortex
X - ? never heard much of them.

So which would you order and why?

woodcraft.....best bang for the buck. price is right and they are great for your typical crashes. vortex pegs have sharp knurls on the pegs and eats holes in your boot faster than you'd like. i like the vortex next in line....but i file down the sharp edges of the pegs. btw, i have vortex rearsets on my SV, and woodcrafts on my GSXR. personal experience and not what "i heard".

CRG, Sato, and Graves are for the street guys who care too much about a dead bug on their bike.

The LSTD team has been using www.onesecondfaster.com rear sets for the second year.
-they dont break the bank
-crash great
-have nice bearings on the levers
-spares are available for them
-the pegs can be changed out quickly without taking the rearset off the bike

They are a small operation and great guys to deal with. You can call Fred and let him know Lone Star Track Days sent you and see what kind of deal he give you. PM me if anyone wants his #.

Couldn't have said it better myself. I have woodcrafts, and they've been crash tested. I don't have any interest in any other brand.

I love my Sato rear sets. I have crashed them twice and all I had to replace was the actual peg that was about 15.00.

They also come with the hardware to setup my bike for GP shift if I wanted. I don't know if other brands provide the hardware or if you have to order separate parts. I don't use it but it is nice to know I can switch without buying anything extra.

I had sato on mine and crashed broke the left main bracket, replacement is $150. I bought a new rearset made by moto r, alright in construction but not grippy as it looks like vortex. Had vortex, that thing will eat your sole for breakfast.

I am a sato man, all I have ever ridden and raced on was sato until recently I had the extreme dissatisfaction of riding on vortex . Sato has a high steel content and will not fracture when crashing unlike the high magnesium content vortex's which snap of and you have to replace that whole dang side. Also the vortex's are extremly grippy on the boot making movements jerky and not smoothe cause your foot sticks to them to much they are a real pain in the . Go with Sato.

I like Woodcraft but they didn't offer fully adjustable sets for old gen SV's. I have Attack rearsets and they have crashed well and feel comfortable!!
