I also vote woodcraft.

They're not as pretty as a lot of other brands like lightech, Gilles, DP but the thing about woodcraft is that you can readily buy every single piece to replace any broken pieces.

Do the Woodcraft rearsets support standard and reverse shift like some of the other options or do you still have to pick one or the other?

Like a lot of you I have also used woodcraft rearsets and they are fine. I have also used Chinese rearsets which worked fine as well. I currently have eBay rearsets on my MV and they work well and were inexpensive. I haven't run into any durability issues with them at all.

I currently run woodcraft rearsets on my track GSXR. I only have a couple of complaints about them, which admittedly are minor. First, the anodizing does fade from black to brownish. Updated footpeg design is better than earlier design. I don't really like the knurled pegs on the end of the shift / brake levers. Range of adjustment could be better.

At the same price point are the Bonamicci rearsets which ive seen in person. They are aesthetically better looking than the Woodcraft's. The toe pieces are rubber which I prefer, though the knurling may be better in the wet, although that isn't an issue for my riding. Pegs and toe tips are comparable in price with Woodcraft and easy to get. The rest of the assembly is unknown.

As far as the Chinese ones, surely some here have first hand experience they want to share.

Been using the ebay ones for about a year and change, replaced most of the bolts, and had some shift rod issues, but otherwise they have worked as intended..

Truly wish Attack performance made some rearsets for our bike.. Best rearsets out there PERIOD in my opinion.

Incidentally asked for feedback about the CNC Pramac rear sets at dealership yday. They recommend Woodcraft due to availability of parts, mentioned CNC has a lot of bolts etc. that could get loose (they also said one would need to purchase a $100 switch to have the availability of changing to GP shift). Anyone any info on that?

Also said if you are not going for looks, the standard on the 1299 are so much better than on 1199 where they had issues. Also mentioned that on Anniversario you can adjust stock to GP shift with above mentioned $100 switch???

The $100 GP shift kit from Ducati consists of a new lever arm for the shift shaft and a wire extension which reverses the switch inputs. If you buy GP shift rearsets you shouldn't need the kit as the reversing of the shift is being done at the foot lever and everything else operates normally.

So what issues has the 1199 rear sets have ? I have never heard of any 1199 rear set issues on this forum in over 4 years. Not saying you are not correct but I would be interested in what the issues were. It's a pretty simple piece on the bike so cannot see what can go wrong. Some guys have had linkages come off but that is poor maintenance. Not the fault of the rear set. And even that is rare.

They just said that the 1299 rear sets are better, don't have details. They said that they had more issues with the 1199 compared to the 1299, which would be logical, as it is an evolution...

Sounds like a salesman dribbling shit to sell the latest model. I don,t blame "they", its how salesman make sales I suppose. But it's is frogshit just the same.

There is nothing wrong with 1199 rear sets except for the slippery pegs.
