I have bought 3 from 3 different sellers. They are all exactly alike. The reason for 3 is because they don't survivr crash (once) or sloe speed drop (once). But at that price I don't mind.
For peace of mind, i used lots of loctite on the bolts, and change the single point of faolure bolts (thr peg bolts) to locally bought reputable high tensile ones.
My current ones have been on the bike for 2 years and still looking great (to me).
The plastic endcap on the pegs tend to fall off, so try to put loctite on them to help them stay.
The knurling on the pegs tend to wear off (I use sidi vortice boots) with hard riding, so I rotate the pegs slightly every few months. With having bought 3 (to replace the right sides that I broke twice) I have a few spare pegs.
I trackdayed with them, rode hard on the road with them, commute with them, sprint raced with them, and endurance race with them. Midpack race group or mid-front fast trackday pack.
Hope it helps.
Won't be suitable for those that prefer immaculate conceptions, but seems robust and suitable enough for thise that prefer practicality and budget (I have to, I spent most of my money on oil, tyres, and maintenance on this stupid bike... ).
One caveat: it wont work with the oem rear brake light switch. You need to change the brake switch with banjo bolt with pressure sensor. They are cheap (10 buck ish) 1mm pitch on ebay and changing them is a relatively quick affair if you are good with wiring jobs. I just cut my oem and spliced the banjo one on, but if you are patient you can remove the oem without cutting.

I believe the design was based on a member here (from german, an aircraft pilot) making one for himself (and ordering a few for spares, I think. And he was fortunately fine with it. I spoke to him here a few times, and complimented the design as it works very well. Very good guy! I cannot remember his nickname. The materials used may not be exactly the same as what he designed, but like I said mine took quite an abuse and still works perfectly fine.
Please note it is designed for 1199 and may not work with 1299 due to different shape/bolt on the rearset mounting area / swingarm pivot side plates.

Have done about 21000 kms on these now. As mentioned above, my first two failed prematurely due to stupid rider errors, along with my cheap fairings. But the third one is a charm.

For position, at the highest setting they raise the feet by about an inchnover the stock position, which is perfect for comfort/race seat as they are about that much higher than stock seat, so it maintains the original posture. I do wosh mine can go up by another inch as that is my preference, but that is personal. I don't think any manufacturer currently make anything that high, though.
Thanks from GMo73

I have used these rearsets the last year without any issues. Talked to Hans at HQ Racing before I ordered from China because he did not have the silver type in stock. They are for 1199 but they fit 1299 with a slight modification on the left bracket.

Does anyone make a rear set that will lower a few inches and more forward an inch or more?

We don't ride on tracks and wouldn't mind getting some rear sets that will make the bike more street friendly.

I suffer a lot of cramps from the heat coming out of the engine after riding an hour or more - also the riding position is so crampy for my legs.

Sounds like you would enjoy a diavel ot scrambler. Have you thought of giving them a test?
Serious observation, not sarcasm. Pls don't be offended. I tried scrambler and nearly cried with joy.

Or try comfort seat. It raises the seating by 1 inch.

Sato Racing rearsets for a more forward position but it's adjustable vertical range is 5mm to 35mm higher not lower.

You could just buy those adjustable pegs with 25-40mm of adjustability. You could then adjust them in any direction you like, including forward and lower.

I have some rearsets from eBay and they work like a charm! I just made sure I replaced all the bolts for higher quality ones and I loctite them all and ever since it has been working PERFECTLY!

The guy is in Miami and he is not chinese (obviously the product is). Same goes for my levers. I ride 2 finger style and I bought CRG shortys and they were still too long for my style and it would smash my fingers, had to send them back. I ordered a set of chinese ones and I've had them for over a year and PERFECT.

There are some chinese stuff (IMO) that are ok to buy. For example I have a friend that bought some rizoma reservoirs replicas.. they were exactly the same and only a day after that crap started leaking like crazy.. In my case I bought the original Ducati Performance ones because I wouldn't take a chance with those.

The levers I had the same ones (obviously different fitment) on my cbr600rr for 5 years and I knew they were good. That's why I bought them for the Pani.

As per the rearsets, my friend who bought the crappy reservoirs (eventually he bought the real Rizomas) had the rearsets installed for a while and he told me they were good so that's why I decided to give them a try and so far so good. Trust me, they are way better quality than the crappy ones that come with our bikes! Same goes for the levers.

And if anybody wants to say the old "you have a $XXXX bike and you spend $XXX on rearsets..." save the speech. You get what you want for your bike, I get what I want for mine . I have expensive stuff but also I have a couple good ol' chinese parts that have been working A1+.. so.... it's your choice at the end of the day.

Hope this helps!
Thanks from Marmoot
