Question New rearsets thread: What's available?

I'm looking at putting on rearsets, either ready-made or DIY.
Most of us know about Storz and Chainsicle's and that was all I was aware that were being produced commercially.
Now I found another source (and you thought Storz was expensive? ) Check these out!:
http://www.xtsportbikeaccessories.co...66/2044694.htm
They've got rearsets for just about any Asian/Euro bike you care to mention, but they've got these ones for XLs.
Just an FYI.
Does any body know of other sources of ready-made rearsets?

Not aware of any others, but the SATO ones you posted are the nicest I've seen yet. Definitely pricy tho...

Misumi Engineering (if you can find your way around their website!) rearsets are pretty. And pretty expensive.

LSL rearsets (also not cheap) have a Forth Rail Bridge kinda look to them, especially with the optional extension for fitting pillion pegs (which at least keeps your pillion's feet off the swingarm, so she won't upset the handling mid-corner as you're scraping everything trying to scare / impress her).

At the risk of getting banned from this section, and with due apologies to Sporting Lad for sullying his cafe-inspired thread , I'll mention that Misumi Engineering also make some tasty not-quite-forward controls (presumably designed for vertically-challenged cruisers).

For reference, here are the Sato Racing rearsets for rubbermounts...




... and for frame mounts.

Cool Beauty, eh?

Hey, Steelman... That is some nicely turned out kit. I do like mechanical things that look good while they're working!
Like, "form follows function" up to a point, but there's no rule stating that things that work well have to be ugly. I'll go talk to them after I cash in this winning lotto ticket.

And, speaking of ugly: Hey, whatsa matter? Can't anybody make rearsets without an externally mounted rear master cylinder?? My '06 is all tucked nicely away from public view. Chainsickle wants me to drag it out onto the sprocket cover! Well, I suppose more to the "retro look" could be one way to chose to look at it but I really would rather leave it concealed.

That DIY ex-member was able to do it. The only thing wrong with that arrangement (IMO) is that using the existing pillion peg brackets puts the rearset pegs outboard even farther! (that's why he sawed off his pegs).

Question Buell = Chainsickle?

I was looking at a 1999 Buell X1 Lightning the other day.
The rearset mechanism looks very like the one Chainsickle is currently offering. I couldn't see whether they'd fit a rubbermount.
Sorry, no pics.

I have the rear sets off a 98 S1 in my garage (with the rest of the bike being parted). I was looking at it and could (possibly) work on a sporty. But I still am not the biggest fan of the idea mounting my controls to my swingarm.
