Damn, whats up with all the different rearsets lately...I need to start looking around more.

If they're the ones that I found on the internet they look pretty sweet...really nice actually. The price is foolish though. When you do get them chime back in and let us know how they are...I wouldn't mind getting a pair of black/red ones to match my special ed...

These it?: http://www.nobunaka.com/

I was seriously considering the Nobus BUT since they are from Thailand, I was concerned about the time it would take to get replacement parts if I needed them. Additionally, they do not mention or have a price/parts list for parts if you need to replace them. I did however, found a local (Cali) guy on Craigslist who sells sets for around 200 and sells the parts individually. Since I don't currently have some extra cash for the bling yet, I'll wait until Spring is here before pulling the trigger. If anyone else has comparable deals, please add to this thread.

I have them and here is my opinion on them being i have Sato's and Arata's on my other bikes.

The as supplied bolts are cheap crap
The bolt for the foot peg is to short and needs at least another 20mm to be solid under weight and if the bike does go down.
The overall feel is of a cheaper metal used and more flex is felt

But for the $200 they are pretty good buy...just add some quality bolts to the mix.

okay heres the follow up on the rear sets-don't know if this is common on all aftermarket rear sets but here i go-need a longer rear brake hose,diff rear brake res.(maybe just a short piece of clear hose) now on the left side, the shift rod that came with the kit is to long nomatter what position the rearset is in-i tried the stock shift rod and it's to short, so if your not a big fan of fabricating stuff don't get these-me, i don't really have a problem building and fabricating stuff but because i didn't have the clear hose or the longer brake line i put the stock one back on till i have more time-
