Rearsets for 929 suggestions/advice needed

ok guys, here is what im looking to do. I want to put some NICE aftermarket rearsets on my 929. I want a set that are high quality, give me the option of reverse shifting AND still keep the rear brake light. Im not sure why Satos dont let you keep the rear light because when im stopped at a light i use the back brake for parking and to alert oncoming traffic that im stopped.

satos would have been my first choice except for this. i heard you can adapt them to use the rear light but i would prefer a simple bolt up with limited hassle. also im not aware of too many companies offering rearsets for my OLD 929.

give me some help here! thanks so very much in advance!

I picked up Attack for mine. Years ago though so not sure what they offer now. Happy with them although they do or at the time did not offer a rear tail light. Which was fine as I do use the rear brake I know the front is also in the works and a tail light is on.

Re: Rearsets for 929 suggestions/advice needed

Most rearsets that change the rear brake switch change to a pressure activated switch. It will either replace the banjo bolt that goes into the rear master cylinder orreplace a crush washer at the banjo bolt. It will require that you remove the banjo bolt either way. Since you have to remove the bolt it is a good time to change your brake fluid and bleed the system. The switch will have two wires and probably not the same connector that your bike uses. You will have to cut and spice or use another connector. It is a pretty simple wiring job. It does not matter which wire goes to what pin on the factory connector. If you wish to retain your factory connector you could just "T" tap into the wires on the bike side of the connector. If you wish to add a connection for easy removal you can use simple spade connector available almost anywhere. If you use spade connectors apply a little bit of dielectric grease to prevent corrosion. You could also use a weather pack connector but it will cost more and requires special crimpers. The crimpers are a fairly cheap tool and once you have them you are good to go for future connections you may want to change or make.
As far as what reasets to use. I just purchased a set from ebay. Some of the $150 china specials. They are actually very nice and seem like good quality. They will not allow GP shifting. They do include a brake light switch. Other than being cool, why do you want to GP shift anyways?

Re: Rearsets for 929 suggestions/advice needed

thanks for all the info! ive just ALWAYS had gp shifting since i was 18. im 40 now. just seems like gear changes are more firm plus netrual is WAY easier to find for some dumb reason. idk... just always perfered it. before i knew what it was called i was doing it. idk... im weird maybe! ha ha. i was wondering how those ebay ones were... i got some cheap shorty levers that are GREAT. and much cheaper of course. Satos.... are freaking 500 bills. seems high but i might just have to bite the bullet. get those on... see if i need a push or pull quickshifter and then order that. i know factory rearsets use a push type quickshifter but since i dont know exactly how the linkage is on satos.. i prob will wait till i get them in so i know for sure..

i wish i could find a discount price on some satos... everyone seems to sell them for msrp.

oh the rear brake fluid is brand new because i put Core braided lines on late last summer. brake lines make a HUGE difference. not really needed for the rear..... but they sure do look good.

Year old brake fluid, by some, is not considered new.

Re: Rearsets for 929 suggestions/advice needed

I haven't really tried it yet but you may be able to set up the cheap ebay ones for gp shift since you seem to really want it. I will try and look at it later today for you and see if it is possible.

I've never ridden with the GP pattern and never had felt that I needed it. And I'm still not sure, I see the benefit of being laid all the way upshifting but I always thought that I get along fine without. Any input from those that changed over?

I've ridden GP shift forever. Since 1992. When I owned my original 600 Hurricane all I did was flip the link on the shift shaft 180 degrees. Boom, GP shift. If people remember, the 93-94 900's only had a lever come off the shift shaft, no linkage. My original build 900 got it when the Chafong rearsets were added, as it came with all the linkage hardware. Also on the 900 a small section of the fairing needed to be cut out to accommodate the linkage. On my current 93 I fitted 95 hardware to get the GP shift. I love stomping on the lever for up shifts. And it's a great excuse to not let your "buddy" ride your bike!

I'm curious to know why the GP shift doesn't work for you Zfrilly3? If the rear sets have a linkage it should work.

Re: Rearsets for 929 suggestions/advice needed

If you flip the part that mounts to the shift rod 180 deg it makes the linkage rod hit the mount for the swing arm. I know that an easy to change a 929/954 it remove the linkage and just use a VFR (not sure year) sifter bolted directly to the shift rod. Problem may be that if you move the rearset too far away you can't move the shifter as well.
