cheapo rearsets

Spotted on another forum.
The listing says they are 80mm spacing so should bolt straight onto my Gen 4.
What is the consensus of opinion?
Worth a punt or avoid like the plague.
I'll never lay out £300 on a pair of brand name rear sets, but these look pretty enough.
The eBay number is:-
251188480809

if you don't want to shell out the money for some quality rearsets i would recommend sticking with the stockers over rolling the dice with anything off fleabay.

Chinese 'quality' is getting better, probably semi-decent machining with shit bearings. Does anyone have these? pics? Even allowing $50 for some good bearings and a little filing, you'd be in front of a name set. If you get a set let me know how they go!! ;)

Though the more I think about it the more I worry. Too many linkages, too much importance. Could be bad quality alloy, crap fasteners etc. don't bother...

That's pretty much the conclusion I came to gents. Anodise the standard heel guards black and make do seems a better plan :)

Ace,

You may want to buy some carbon fiber heel guards instead of anodizing the stock ones. http://www.zx-10r.net/forum/f23/carbon-heel-guards-120287-post1878894.html

Powerbronze c/f heel guards fitted today :)
I did try the cheapo rearsets, and I didn't fancy having to fab up a reservoir bracket and then fit a pressure switch etc. it all seemed like a lot of hard work. And the spacing is something closer to 75mm on a gen 4 so I would have had to file it out a little.
Stockers are comfy anyway ;)
