From pictures and videos, they're very different to the Gen4 V2 design we're all used to. It seems to have an extra mechanism to convert it to GP shift without having to flip the shift knuckle. Has anyone tried them yet? Looking for feedback on usability and reliability.


Hey Lanister,
I just mounted mine... there's a couple threads going on it now. here's one :Adjustable Rearsets?
Yes there's an extra mechanism to mount them. The instructions are nonexistant - but they supply a great diagram - you have to figure out the order as you go along.
Don't worry though... I'm not a mech wizard and I was able to do it.

here's some pictures.
