Does anything crash well? I posted this same thread last month, from what people told me was they are ok for the price but not easy to get parts for, and when I called their customer service is less than par, but for 100 that's cheaper than oem so go for it.

most rear sets are billet aluminum , depending on the crash those hold up pretty good, Pro Tek stuff is really soft aluminum that just folds as soon as it hits the ground

Had a friend go down like that cept it was his shoe lace that got caught on the shifter, I watched him slowly fall over at a stop light it had to be the funniest thing ever witnessed. On topic did you break the peg or the rearset? If its just the peg it would probably be best to buy just the peg if you can.

the rearset broke one arm and the peg broke about an inch off. so right now its rigged and i can still brake ok but i want to take off this eventually. it been riding in this way for months now but spring is coming soon and i dont want any unexpected trouble.

I wanted to get someone to weld the arm back together and just buy another peg but i dont know if this metal can be fixed. So instead of spending $50 plus on one rearset, im willing to spend another $50 to get a pair of rearsets.

i had a laugh when i fell over, i probably looks like a big fat tree cut down and slowly leaning over and hitting the pavement...TIMBERRRRRRRRRRRRR suks my jeans got ruined too

haha best way to fall ever. i've had shoelaces loop around my shifter AND my brake before, bigtime panic moment but no falls. i still kick my feet out randomly to make sure i have at least one foot free coming to a stop sometimes.

i got the rear sets and they are nice and pretty new but if you can guess what come next...these rearsets dont fit the 04 bike. the guy who sold me the set said he had them on an 03 zx6r so obviously something is whack! i got the seller to respond, its not ebay, craigslist so its pretty much hope to get my cash back is pretty low. trying to check with pro tek what the rear set model is.

can someone tell me what the length is from point to point of the two bolt the rearset goes on the frame? the rear set i have is about 3 inches. i remember from last nite the rearset was about 1/4 inch off. i should of measure it last nite.
