RearSet Opinions?-2013teamsbkducatialstare2.jpg

i got lightech, the Alstare Ducati team uses them. Fit and finish is good, i think they are a quality set.

Does it accommodate standard shifting?

Yes it does. I paid about 1K shipping from italy which cost less than DP and looks better IMO and performs very well.

Anti, my Lightech are miles ahead of stock. Shift and brake has no play but easier to use due to ball bearings. Feels like I got a new transmission in the process and I thought it was good before. Brake feels great also and easier to modulate.

Not sure if there is any difference between the stock and R model other than titanium fasteners and carbon heel guards. Lightech does claim they are machined to a higher finsh?

Price is equal or higher than DP but due to bad knee I had to have something close to stock in low position. Mine are about the same as stock in lower forward position but has very good and easy adjustability.

Lightech Rear sets IMHO is hands down the best for the 1199. I replaced my Rizoma's with the Lightech R. Much smoother action when shifting and braking due to the smooth action bearings. Lots of adjustments folding foot and toe pegs, easy to install, Ti hardware (screws), looks good, high quality finish. Downside is its expensive.

Ok, just pulled the Ducabike rearsets off last night and discovered they'd been rubbing into my swingarm when the suspension fully extends. So instead of putting them on my new bike I opted for DP and wish I'd just gone DP to begin with. I spent close to $1500 on Gilles and Ducabike and should have gone with DP (or possibly Lightech, but I'm not a fan of the looks).

DP also, contrary to popular belief, allows you to switch between GP and Standard shifting without needing that $300 linkage.

Anyone want to buy a used set of Black Ducabike rearsets? PM me--need to sell 'em w/in the next week.

First post here, so this is important ;-) I may not be 7' tall like the OP but I'm 6-2 and 50yrs old... and the knees aren't what they used to be. Bike is a '14 1199R. I want more leg room, less wrist strain and though my hope is to one day be a knee dragger, I'm a dirt rider and at my age, I doubt I can get that low. I can't even spread my inside thigh enough to get the knee out like I need to. So for now, while I'm working on technique, I want to get more comfortable so I can stay focused. Does that mean I want rearsets moved back and down or ??? What other mods would you recommend. Thanks for the help.

first of all you need to get comfy with the bike and that means you have to fees secure on it. if you really want to go knee dragging, get different pegs in the beginning (rizoma, LSL) to get more grip on your feet.

with all the adjustability on the rearsets, i am not sure, if anyone even tried a lower/back position on them. most track riders have them higher i guess. i don't even know if the range is there.

we can start a comparison thread... i throw in the data of my GILLES when i find the time.

also for better grip on the bike, check a different seat and some storm grips on your tank.
