We just released our rearsets at Graves. These were originally developed to team specs for some racing applications and some exhausting R&D and 3D prototyping. When they came out it was exclusively through our WORKS program. Due to a lot of people having rearset caused shift issue they went pretty fast. We have extra sets on hand now :)

Also check out the Attack Performance rearsets.

That's what I've got and I love them.

I'm not to sure about how much they can be lowered from stock but they're definitely an improvement.

I got mine from Mike at Riders Discount as well so give him a try.

I have had 5 or 6 sets of the Chinese rearsets between my ZX6Rs and ZX10Rs and have had good luck with them. Just have to use a good amount of red loctite. :) I use them on my GEN5 with ABS as well and didn't have to modify anything.

Be Careful... Check the ACTUAL amount of drop in adjustments.. Most don't drop at all.. I ended up going Gilles as they have the most in drop. Followed by Attack.. If you notice, most sellers say they have gobs of adjustment, but they don't tell/show you schematic to actually see it.. Also don't be fooled... Hate to say it.. But most sets ARE made by the Chinese and re-badged.. I say most... Not all..

I'm still looking for someone who makes a drop plate for the rear sets, that will fix most our problems..

(Regarding Woodcraft rearsets and the concerning ABS model)

and from this thread Zx10r Abs - Woodcraft Rearsets - Extra long brake line.

purchased on Revzilla and from their site they mention "a fitment issue" with the rear brake line for the ABS model.
The line needs to be custom ordered "a few inches longer".
__________________________________________________ ___

I have talked to Spiegler... this is what they said..

"We can make a rear line for you. You would however need to tell us the extra length you need and if the fitting(s) need to be changed.
We do not keep specs on lines that use non-OEM equipment. Once you get that info you can call us at the number below to place an order for a custom line."

Before I started the install on the woodcraft rearsets... I did a bit of digging around.

I also contacted Woodcraft and asked them about it, basically if they could tell me the length.
This is the message woodcraft sent me:

"We would recommend running a brake line that is about 2 inches longer. Galfer would be the best bet to source them. Note that to install the longer brake line you would have to remove the rear swing-arm."

I'm not taking off a swing-arm for this. Disappointed, I ended up putting the woodcraft rearsets back on a truck to Revzilla.

I contacted R&G yesterday here's their reply!

"Many thanks for getting in touch. We include a replacement/extended brake line in the Rearset kit to allow for full adjustability of the rear set, swingarm removal isn't required to install the R&G kit"
they also included the instructions.
