Installed Gilles Rearsets

On the Kawi of course! I decided on these as they were reasonably priced, came with good reviews and were much nicer looking than the Vortex rearsets... Install was easy, not too difficult to adjust. They are kind of extreme for street riding but will be good for the race next weekend, then I can adjust them back to a more comfortable street level. Looking forward to trying them out at the track!

Re: Installed Gilles Rearsets

They help keep your boot off the exhaust? Look sweet!

Re: Installed Gilles Rearsets

Those look really nice! What does it cost to replace just the levers and/or pegs.

These come as a complete set ... They are very nice, the bearings make the shifting smoother and more reliable. It also had a spot to attach the brake light switch which was nice...

Right, but what happens when you crash and bend/break a peg or lever? You don't have to replace the whole rearset. Only the lever or peg. Right?

Re: Installed Gilles Rearsets

The baked-on boot heal makes a nice contrast in the pics.

I do all my own stunts.

Right, the parts are available separately. They are available through LP...

Hopefully these will help avoid that issue in the future.
