Rearset Suggestions

Hi all.

I'm looking for some feedback from the community about the rearsets currently on the market and what everyone's experience has been up to this point in regards to quality, ease of installation, etc. I know this question could lead to some biased responses, but I haven't been able to find any solid reviews so something is better than nothing!

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 Ducabike rearsets, they are pretty good and easy enough to install. They do not come with heel guards though, you have to reuse the stock ones.

My personal preference for rear sets is Gilles Tooling (Germany , supplier for BMW Motorrad) or Gia Moto (UK). Absolutely top notch stuff every time.

For the V4S both are still not available from either, so I picked up DP (Rizoma) and honestly I dislike them very much for the following reasons:

1. Precision of movement is not there, there is a lot of slop/play in the pivot points if you pull side to side, something I consider unacceptable in a high quality rear set. It is like OEM in that aspect.
2. No ability to adjust shift lever without removing rear set from the bike. Seriously? All the others I had can easily be fine tuned without taking off anything.
3. Left heel guard (carbon) in particular, not included in the set by the way, sticks out too far outward and very small in size. It causes my left foot discomfort. Maybe you’ll be different, but I hate it.
4. No included instructions, but luckily you can download them from this forum.
5. I do not like increased peg diameter by the very end of the peg. My preference is with constant diameter all the way or if there is a bigger diameter by the end it needs to be thicker in length otherwise it is just inducing wear on the boot and somewhat catchy when moving the foot up and down. This is my opinion.
6. Craftsmanship and beauty is not the highest overall.

I know Gia Moto is working on the set and prototype testing it in U.K. as soon as they are available I will be picking them up. I run Gia Moto on my Aprilia, they are utmost awesome in every aspect. I am sure there are others just as good and I heard good things about Attack and others you mention , but no personal experience.

Sorry to hear about the horrible experience with the Rizoma rearsets. Definitely crossing these off my list now lol. I'm assuming you're going to hold out for Gilles or Gia rearsets? Or will you try others currently on the market?

Thanks for the feedback. The LightTech rearsets (non-r) are roughly $100 more expensive and include heel guards so the decision is pretty close between those two for now. Did your rearsets require any mods to the shifting rod or brake light switch?

Nope, they work with all of the stock components without modification.

I really like them

I have the LightTech rearsets on my V4 and so far they seem to be quite nice. Very simple and straight forward. I have CNC Racing rearsets on the 1299 and tried to hold out for those, as I really liked them, but honestly, I'm pretty happy with the LightTech ones on the V4. I went with the non-R version, as I was more interested in functionality than looks and so far so good.

I contacted woodcraft as I have used them in the past and found them reasonably priced and a decent quality with replaceable parts and they will have some in the next month or so.

Great! If you don't mind, I'd be looking forward to hearing about your experiences with them. I've only relied upon woodcraft for crash protection.

Good to hear from you MotoX. Hopefully you're seeing positive results from your coolant replacement.

I'm really close to pulling the trigger on the LightTech rearsets, but something tells me to hold on until the fall to allow more venders to enter the market for the V4. Just like we're having to wait for more aftermarket exhaust options!
