Which rearsets do you guys have? I like the gilles they are my pick so far after a little bit of research. It seems like a lot of people like the satos?? I have an 05 in blue, and I want gold rearsets to go with some of the gold accents I have on the bike. Please inform me as much as possible about fit and features. Any input and pics would be appreciated.

i was looking at harris, gilles, and sato. i went with the sato for the sole reason that they are they only rear sets that will allow me to run the gp shifting with race railz. you cant go wrong with any of them though, i would stay away from vortex though, they have a tendency to grind through shoes.

Im definitely more interested in functionality over appearance, just thought gold rearsets would look sweet with gold pazzo levers. Still thinking gilles is the way to go.

the gold pazzos are a darker gold than the gilles rearsets. i have the gold gilles and gold pazzos on my 06 r6 and there is a big diff in color. also the gold gpr stabilizer is a lil darker than the gilles but lighter than the pazzos...i know cuz i have it as well :curse pisses me off that there isnt a standard gold. every manufacturer has a diff shade. grrr.

I'm saving up for a set of Satos. Love the look and functionality.

i run Vortex because they have insane grip, are reasonably priced, and replacement parts are easy to get at trackdays if u down it.
they may be on a honda, but u get the idea.

my friend has gilles, and they are nice, but as far as functionality goes, they are the same.

i think the sickest rearsets are CRG, they look awesome but are probably the most expensive out there.

I went with Gilles Rear Sets... I just thought they looked the best... Bought gold also to match my USD Gold forks and Gold Rims. Thinking about getting gold pazzos 2. Heres a few pics to show you.

Has to be Gilles, no other comes close, beware those rearsets that use the original lever fixing point as they will still have the false 2nd gear issue, the only way to avoid it is use a rearset that uses a different location point like Gilles, those boys did their homework
check out my product review in the forum 'gilles rearsets'

I just installed Woodcraft ones that I got off ebay really cheap. I had them on my last bike. And I have no problems with them at all.
