Cheap eBay Rearsets Review. Very Good!

Hey, I just took a risk on a set of eBay rearsets. I didn't see any reviews for this particular type, so I took a shot.

The fit is 100% perfect. No problems during installation whatsoever. The quality is great too, and I'm pretty surprised they were only $100. The best part is that you can retain the original rear brake light switch (kind of).

Here are some pictures:






The machining is great, and there are no clearance issues. They include all necessary hardware, except for the brake light. In order to get the rear brake light to work, you will need to buy a M5 bolt and a M12x1.5 nut.

There are some install notes I want to make. In order to attach the shift rod linkage, try the other connectors (they include 2 sets). For the rear brake light, buy a screw/bolt that fits into the brake lever. Then use the supplied spring to attach the rear brake light switch to the screw/bolt. Attach the brake light switch to the supplied bracket with the OEM nut, and another nut you will have to buy.

Overall, definitely buy if you're interested.

Follow up in a few months and let us know how they perform. I saw some that were older and they wiggled around a lot at the shift linkages.

It would also be awesome if someone made an install video. They don't have one specifically for the 300 on the good ol YouTube.

If I go through with a purchase I'll write up some notes, not much of a video guy.

I'm still using them, and they've been perfect. I lowsided on the track, and the foot peg saved my bike.

The full weight of the bike was on the foot peg as the bike slid across the track into the gravel. The foot peg took the damage without transferring it to the bike or the rear sets. I replaced the foot peg for like $10.

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

Love the color combination of the bike!

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.
