Who has the best rear sets for a 54?

I am interested in getting some rear sets for my 2003 954. Who makes the best ones, best looking ones, etc...? If anyone has some pics or some links please inform me. Also if you have any testimonials let me know as well. Thanks.

Give Dan a call, 831-394-1330

I know he has some slick Arata rearsets and I think Satos as well. I have the Satos on my RC, they are frikkin' sick, shifting is like buttah.

Re: Who has the best rear sets for a 54?

I'm not too much of a fan of the Mori's as I don't like how the footpeg bolts on.

I had attacks and they were pretty good, a bit flexy. They weren't anodized which would suck on a streetbike. They're not as nice as the Satos.

Re: Who has the best rear sets for a 54?

Im thinking of geting some aftermarket rearsets as well, not so much to alter the position of the pegs but for me the main problem with the std ones is that I cannot get the rear brake lever down low enough as I have used up all of its adjustment and I would like it to be about 3/4" lower at least! Does anyone else find the same thing or am I just a physiological freek?

Re: Who has the best rear sets for a 54?

I've only heard very good things about the Sato rearsets. There was a small review in a recent MC on the 600rr, and the author said the shifting was butter smooth, the adjustability was quite diverse (9 positions I think), and the look and finish was top notch quality and very sharp. I can't see how you could go wrong; plus DK carries them, and they are not as much a marketing result/crappy product as some of the other stuff out there.

Re: Who has the best rear sets for a 54?

Another thumbs up for the Sato Racing Reasets!!!

My feet feel more planted on the Satos and the shifting is so smooth!

The only bad thing is that you have to use your toe to put the side stand down, when wearing racing boots. It's kind of weird, but you get use to it. Funny thing is, when wearing regular shoes you can put the side stand down normally.

Re: Who has the best rear sets for a 54?

I haven't looked to see whether Woodcraft has a set for the 54, but I dig'em on my track SV. Cheap to replace parts should you need to and (at least for the SV) they have a 2" up and 2" back set.

Re: Who has the best rear sets for a 54?

Another thumbs up for Satos! I never thought rearsets could make such a difference in terms of feeling so much more solid under your feet. I expected the improved clearance and easier shifting, but was really happy with how solid they feel. They're easily adjustable to seven positions. Dan includes the banjo bolt to hook up so your brake light works (necessary for me to pass state inspection).
They lower the brake pedal considerably, even more so on the 954 than the 929. I can deal with it on my 929, but on HondaGal's 954, her brake pedal is too low; she'll need to put a longer bolt in to raise it up.

Re: Who has the best rear sets for a 54?

Woocfraft is really good, US made so easy to get replacement parts if necessary and STRONG AS HELL! No I didn't find out the hard way. I have seen so many slash cut pegs just grind down to nothing in a short slide. The pegs sure as hell hold your foot in place too!

Re: Who has the best rear sets for a 54?

Sato got my vote, too. They're excellent, but not cheap!

Check out a good review on Rogue:

Re: Who has the best rear sets for a 54?

Terrible pics of Harris rearsets on my 929 here. Just fitted so grease and Coppaslip all over them.

954 version is very similar. (identical on left side)


Note folding toe spigot both sides. Nice poseriffifc touch.
If you dump the bike all bits can be sources individually.
