We are just sayin from experience bro, rearsets can get broke easy if you go down and a spare set is always good to have NOW rather than later ya know?thanks guys for the replies ya i didnt want to spend the extra money for new rearsets im leaning towards powdercoating them flat black i think it will flow better with the bike..if anyone has pics of both gloss black or flat i would really appreicate it thankss

By the looks of your avatar, I think you just answered your own question :dunce:y the hell would u need a spare set of rearsets? just get them flat black, will match the frame
have yet to break a rearset. thats why you have cages :factBy the looks of your avatar, I think you just answered your own question :dunce:
What we are trying to do hear is justify the cost of what it will be to powder coat vs. buying aftermarket. You are correct in that not everyone has the $ to throw around, but if its going to add more protection and not much more $ than I think its worth it.. If coating was to cost lets say $100 IMO I would rather put that towards a set of aftermarket rearsets, have the stock ones as spares and just rattle can them flat black.. I have had friends who have yet to be on the track go down unfortunately and their aftermarket rearsets did minimize the damage on their bikes.. Yes the aftermarket rearsets can be damaged too depending on how you crash, but most are rebuildable. You don't have to worry about the pegs folding up like the stock ones do and causing more damage... so again, if the cost is minimal go for the black aftermarket rearsets (Vortex, ValterMoto, Woodcraft or the other ones listed on this site for cheap) If it's cheap to powder coat than def. go with the flat black...
I spend my $ on safety like rearsets, frame/swingarm sliders etc.. before performance parts (exh. PC3 etc..)
$25 !!! Go for it.. I have never had anything powdercoated so I did not know the costs involved.. But for $25 bux I might do that to mine !!:toocool:thanks guys for the replies the cost is 25 bucks shipped for the pair..i think im just going to go flat black thanks...
