Finally lost my patience with the Ducabike Rear Sets. Yesterday went out for a ride and they feel just as sloppy as they did before doing the SKF Heim Joints.

Perhaps the shifting mechanism in the engine or the clutch slave has something to do with the overall feel of the shifting?

Regardless, the mechanical design of the Ducabike rearsets are just plain wobbly and you can't dial out the movement of the parts by adjusting the linkage or the other parts behind the sets.

I ordered some CNC racing versions last night from Bellisimoto. Since I use GP shift these hopefully will be a marked improvement. They have bearings like my Attack Racing versions for my old 848. Those shifted very well. just mad that after one broken shift pivot bolt, and now I am on my 3rd pivot bolt since the second one bent a bit.

The third one went in today and will nurse the shifter until I can get the new rear sets in the mail this week.

Very frustrating having a cobby shifting mechanism on such a great bike. Never have seen so much drama regarding shifters before on any of my other bikes.

Looking at all the play between the parts behind the plate, it seems that the lack of bearings and the 3-4 pivots and joints contribute to the lack of an effective design.
Thanks from Gecko

DP rearsets here and I love them and wouldn't hesitate to buy them again. Silky smooth operation and installing them myself wasn't too bad. Haven't had any issues with the operation or any parts breaking or bolts falling off since my original install. Probably have about 5k mi on them and 6 track days.

I do have a friend that went with the Sato for more adjustability cause he's a bit taller than me and he hasn't had any issues with them. Fit and quality look good also.

I am curious if anyone who has the CNCs installed would offer their opinions. I am very tempted to go with those. They look great and while not cheap, they are not as pricey as the DP Performance and they seem to have more adjustability. Thanks

I'll post up my impressions of the CNC rear sets in a week or so. I can tell you that coming from Attack Racing with bearings and Woodcraft on my K3 GSX-R 1000 and the failed Ducabike design as noted by Anti-Hero and others, you won't go wrong with the CNC design.

Thanks JHT. I am in no rush but it would be great to hear your thoughts. The CNC's look great and at the top of my list for now.

Especially in the world of really fast motorcycles. I'm usually the largest guy on these things so if anyone knows of any other parts that might make my life easier, I'd really appreciate the info.

Thanks for the input tho. Helps to know that the rizoma's don't adjust much. I need as much as possible. Probably doing a wind screen change as well.
Why don't you call the guys at Woodcraft. I bet they have some thoughts, since they design and build the products themselves, not to mention supply quite a few riders/racers with parts. Eric Wood is/was a CCS/AMA racer himself and I think he rides an 1199.

Just ordered a set of Lightech R series. Not a bad price for $775 USD.
