I just read this in a thread from another forum:
"I've spent some time at the local dealer staring at the 1100evo rearsets as an affordable change.
What I noticed was the 1100evo rearsets mount the brake master cylinder in a ~vertical position. Stock 696 'rearsets' have the master cylinder horizontal.
Consequently, I think you need to change the brake pedal and hose between the master cylinder and reservoir as well (and perhaps the push rod between the pedal and master cylinder).
The concern I had is that the new master cylinder position may actually contact the double sided swing arm on the 696. I haven't heard of anyone actually doing this conversion yet and don't know if it is a real issue or not. I don't have parts on hand to measure b/c I would be really interested to know."

Unless you find a good price on a used set your better off with adjustable aftermarket rear sets. Alternatively, you can do S*R rearsets on the 696/796/1100 for the same look for far less money.
As far as 1100Evo passenger pegs, I thought the 696/796/1100 bikes didn't have the holes in the subframe needed to mount them?
Are you sure the 1100 EVO rearsets fit no problem? It's contrary to that other post.
And I did read elsewhere as well that you need to use an 1100Evo subframe in order to attach the passenger pegs.
