Just in from Italy...

I ordered a set of rear sets, manufactured by Vater Moto, from http://www.carpimoto.it/ on april 16th and I received them today. Here they are, I will try and install them tonight and take some pics. BTW I beleive that they are set back +20mm, but I dont remember the exact number.

here you go...only bad thing is that there is no provision for the rear brake light switch. Not to hard to install, the hardest part was trying to understand the Italian directions .

Who needs to read? Just look at the pretty pictures!

It looks good, but can't you rig it so that the shifter will still go thru the frame?

Nice!

I would say no, because the linkage rod is more "parralel" to the ground than original. so it wont go through the slot in the frame.

First the compliment... You do nice work and it's obvious you like you bike to seek improvements as you do.

But... Is this an improvement? From the pictures it would seem that your feet are a 4-5 inches back from stock which would seem to be messing with the geometry of the riding position. To me the nature of the riding geometry is one of the true attractions to this bike over some of the competition.

Nice to look at though, and if it makes you more comfortable, good on 'ya.

Cheers

Looks like you crashed the shit out of her! Rearsets look good. I still like the trademark through the frame linkage though.

Yeah they are set back alittle more than original, but thats the main reason for buying them. I got a set of lower bars to, which gives me a more of a foward lean seating angle. I love the bike, but the only reason I bought it was(at the time I knew ZERO about motorcycles) it looked good, was a Yamaha, and I could afford it. I didnt want a touring bike, I wanted a sports bike. And these help give me that "feel", I cant comment on comfort at the time because I screwed up my knee during the crash and it hurts like a bitch when I bend it to get on the pegs.
