Due to "old3" working me up on these rearsets I decided to give them a try.

I installed my SV Racing Rearsets last night:
http://www.svracingparts.com/products/#!/~/product/id=1616711

The good thing is they are made in the USA and still extremely affordable.

The total install took about 30 minutes or so, and it was very easy, just unbolt the old and bolt on the new.

The results are amazing, it feels like a whole new bike now! The shifting is excellent, it is such a positive shift and such little moment is required, I just do not see it being possibly for a miss shift. There is so much grip on the pegs and the foot pedals. The brake is a whole new feeling as well, it seems like much less effort is required to brake, maybe it is because of the angles of the pedal now? Also they give you so much additional leg room!! I don't consider it a sportier position, I just consider it more leg room.

For the price these can not be beat, and I recommend them to anyone that would love to have a more positive shifting and additional leg room.

Not the best pics but my garage is not well lit and I dont have a flash on my camera phone.

Wow those are cheap!!!

Look nice. You would still have to chop up the sprocket cover to run GP shift, right?
correct, you still use the same mount for shift linkage, but you do get a new shift linkage rod..

As a side not, I did not buy the adapter to get the rear brake light to work with the brake pedal. So right now I do not have a brake light when I step on the brake, it does work just fine with front brake though.. I may or may not address this is the future.. I never use JUST the rear brake so I am not to worried..

Probably coarse thread and fine thread. Email to be sure, he will set you up right. I'm pretty sure the 300s are CT and Brembo stuff is FT. I had a Brembo brake light switch on the shelf that didn't fit due to thread pitch.

I'm running sans rear brake switch too. Most of my enduro bikes end up this way too.

Hey, I was just on the other 300 site and answered a question about my rear sets when I saw my posts about modding the kickstand. I had forgotten all about it and I guess you didn't have the same problem but in case you or someone does, here it is.

http://www.ninja300.org/topic/115-rear-sets/

I wasn't able to down shift as the shifter hung up on the kickstand loop. I trimmed it off, ground it smooth, painted it and forgot it wasn't there so it isn't needed anyway.

I am actually very happy with my position now, I just need to fine tune them to equal them out, one side has a little more angle than the other, and I would like them to be the same on both sides..

I just didnt expect to be so happy with this mod!!

I am going to put the rearsets and rear pegs from my 300 onto my 250R, along with the stock 300 exhaust :)

correct, that is how much aftermarket rear sets are..

the folding rearsets on the 250R/300 dont do much at all, alot of people that drop their bikes actually break off the rearsets..
