IMO, Don't wait ... I really doubt It can get any better than what Lightech offers already ...

Definitely made a difference. Last track day was in the 100+F range. Not a single overheating event. Happy with the changes. Little bit of growing pains with any new model, but I'm cool with it...

My primary concern on the rearsets were adjustability, GP shift (stock can already do this), smooth operation and edge peg grip. Green lights in all areas with LT. The CNCs are by far the grippiest peg, but the LightTech are sufficient for track duty. Seems like a quality product.

I have the overpriced rear sets that Rizoma make they are Ok nothing special and don’t even have heel guards supplied .
I have always used Woodcraft in the past always loved what they made would wait to see what they offer

I wouldn’t call it horrible, but I have high expectations for these parts. I can live with them until Gia Moto releases theirs and then evaluate all options.

The Gilles are ways out, I talked to them maybe a month ago and they were not even starting R&D yet. Gia did not give concrete dates for the release, but mentioned something along the lines of “end of track season in the U.K.” so we’ll see.

Thanks for all of the feedback so far gentlemen! Since I don't have much track experience, I'm sure the LightTechs will be more than adequate. Please continue to update the thread though!

Do you have LT rearsets that you're praising as well?

I have the Bonamici. They are good. I installed with no modification neccessary. Grip and function is good as well. The ball bearing axis points are an upgrade for sure and decent adjustibility.

I'm eyeing the Light Tech rearsets for the V4 and they've always been known to release a high quality product. Either those or holding out to see if Attack Performance releases anything soon.

Thanks in advance.

I have the CNC Racing Reverse shift Adjustable silver/black RPS Ducati rear sets on my 1299 and love them. On my BMW S1000R I have the Lightech R series reverse shifting and think they are a work of art. Amazing rear sets. And lastly on my BMW S1000RR I have the Gilles Tooling FXR black rear sets also reverse shifting. The Gilles are the most bland looking. They work great. Craftsman ship is top notch but they are a bit boring looking compared to the CNC Racing and Lightech. And I had to buy the Gilles foldable foot begs because they dont come with them. CNC and the Lightech R series also have foldable shifter and brake pegs while the Gilles dont on my S1000RR. However the Gilles for the 1299 look really good. I looked at the Gilles website and at this time they dont have any for the V4. But their production has been so slow lately. My friend is waiting since March for a set he paid for

I've previously posted about Gilles and some other long time members did also. If you are going to race and/or do hardcore track days, I would NOT consider Gilles. I have broken two sets. The last time was on a ZX-10R racing in Daytona. The shift rod broke on both pair of Gilles that I used for racing. Nothing like coming out of the horseshoe, pinned, and the shift rod breaks. The situation barely missed being extremely ugly. I guess for the street Gilles would be okay and I agree they are beautifully machined, but don't race with them. Highside49
