YES! If you complain that your bolts came out, then it's your fault for not putting loctite. These bikes vibrate, and bolts can loosen over time regardless of brand.

If you are using rear sets, you need to loctite the bolts!

Sure it is! Vehicles should come in a box and should be self assembled just to make sure everything loctited...

It's not a user's fault. It's a users responsibility. Whole different concepts. It simply isn't practical to assume that every motorcycle part has to be completely taken apart and reassembled before installation. Mechanics sure as hell don't.

Agreed, had it happen to me a couple of times on different bikes.

I find two things wrong with your logic. First, it's both the fault and the responsibility of the user, but the end result is really what matters. Secondly, the bolts that require loctite do come with it from the factory.

Aftermarket parts cannot be treated like factory replacements. It absolutely is your fault if you don't use loctite on rearsets, and a bolt falls off. You don't have to assume every parts need this, but rearsets do.

I've got the same generic CNC aluminum rearsets, more or less, for about the same price. They haven't been trouble free but I've managed. I fixed the brake light issue with a longer spring and some fine-tuning. The biggest issue is that the main bolt which serves as the axis for the gear lever wasn't properly attached from the factory, and while riding at night at 90 mph or so, around 50 miles from home, I tried to switch gear and the lever wasn't there. Scary as hell while your in fast trafic and can't see anything since it's dark. The lever was dangling there hitting the floor hanging by the linkage, so thankfully I didn't lose it. The seller refused to take responsibility which sucked. I had to ride 50 miles in 6th gear at night in Florida traffic. Not fun. I actually didn't think I would make it but this bike is actually usable stuck in 6th gear. Who would have guessed. Moral of the story, use loctite.

I also had some clearance issues, so I had to move the shift lever out with some spacers and a longer bolt.

Besides that, I'm happy with it. The gear changes are super crisp and short. I can't stand OEM gear changes anymore thanks to it. Being able to adjust the position is also great.

I don't have any other picture at hand where the rearsets are visible, so this pic will have to do. I was trying out the new pizza bag I modded. There's a post for it if anyone's curious.




my i get the pic your phone holder , how to install it please? thank you

Look up "Steering Bolt Ram Mount", and you'll see plenty of pics around the forum or Google. It's pretty typical. You have to drill and tap the steering stem bolt yourself and install a RAM mount threaded adapter. If you have a drill (preferably a column drill) and the right tap, it isn't that hard to do.

These are perfect quality rear sets for like a $100. You can't really beat them.

Those are the same ones I have. They're adjustable so just play with them. I put them too high to begin with and my knees were not fitting into the tank cutout right, but since I moved them down and back a notch I love them and can't stand sloppy OEM gears anymore.

Looks like your ebay rearsets are installed in a good way.
I have bought these eaby rearsets as well, but I cannot figure out how the brake side should be installed.
Do you have pictures of the back on your brake side rearset? It's the brake system and brake light I don't know how to connet them with the rearset.


I am also trying to make a video of how to install these ebay rearsets. I would be really appreciate if you can show the right way to install them.


Thanks so much!

To be helpful!
