What rearsets are those corse? I'm looking for some other rearsets mainly for the looks. I'm happy with the feel of stock ones. Maybe i'll bring them in with the powdercoater but i don't if black will match the frame enough for me.
Keep us up to date and GL with the mods.
From what I have been told and read, the front weighs 4.6 lbs and the back 5.65 lbs (or pretty close to those numbers) so the combined weight of both wheels is less then the weight of just the front OEM wheel. I have done the math and between the BST wheels and the exhaust I want to do I am shaving almost 30 lbs off the bike. And then there is the bling factor of carbon fiber wheels ;D I will keep you guys posted.
As for the rearsets, I bought them from Moto Wheels. I believe they are Italian. Check with those guys. They are anodized black and real solid billet aluminum. They arrived today. I should have the rearsets and tailchop complete by tomorrow. Wheels should arrive next week.
If anyone has a solution for me, I need help finding a clip on that will mount under the OEM triple.
