It seems like you're a little put off that you haven't convinced me to go with the Evo rearsets. Frankly, I don't see how having to add a a pressure switch with the aftermarket ones is a bigger issue than having to gain access to a hydraulic press to install the Evo pegs.

Aftermarket rearsets just seem much more plug and play than what you had to go through to get the Evo ones on there.


But anyway that's all beside the point. I wasn't looking at getting aftermarket rearsets. I was simply discussing it for the sake of presenting a counter to your views. As I said, I'm more interested in a cheaper option at the moment - the s4r rearsets. And yes i know a spacer is required.

Honestly. I could care less what you do to your bike. Put knobby tires on it if you want to. I could really give a sh!t. You just seem to want to argue, which makes me think you must be a woman.

What, no reply. I must really have hit it home then. Your a whiny, socialist woman from Vancouver that likes to argue with people who are offering good advice, and like most people like you you assume that we care what you do or think. We don't.


so there

Jesus fuck. Okay, added to the "douchebag troll" list. There's one on every forum I join. I wasn't arguing you twat. It's called a discussion. You say things, I say things. They are differing points of opinions - that doesn't make it an argument. It's a conversation. A conversation that you decided to randomly just start calling me names in.

Grow the fuck up.

"What no reply?" - sorry, I don't spend every waking second glued to forum eagerly awaiting replies from the various people I'm trolling like a child.

Both of you behave yourselves. It's just the internet, and you're upset with each other about different opinions on footpegs?

I'm not upset about footpegs. I thought the discussion was going along just fine. I'm annoyed that he randomly decided to attack me amidst our conversation about footpegs.

Sorry Mala I don't see that Daddy threw the first stone in this fight. I'm not prepared to step in and delete any comments either. Seems DD here was very content to just leave it at that after explaining his who, what, and why and then walk away.

So please cool down and stop arguing. Both of you just let it ride from here.

To add to your thread. I've used the Goodridge pressure switch banjo bolt on several bikes and have only had one failure on a bike. But that seems about par on any device. After swapping with a new one, the old one was about a year old, no more problems. I've got them on my Paul Smart with Sato rear sets right now. You might consider adding Sato, Ducabike, and Aella Casuno for some nice rear sets.

I don't get how there isn't a difference seen between continuing a discussion over differing opinions (yes, that's all I was doing), vs. calling me a "whiny socialist woman". I threw the first stone, somehow? It's not my fault daddyducati can't handle some discussion where someone doesn't see 100% eye to eye with him without getting his panties in a twist and resorting to name-calling. I had even thanked him for his initial writeup. I never said it wasn't good information, I was just pointing out reasons why I would've gone with aftermarket for similar money.

Anyhow. I'm not asking anyone to delete comments. And I'm not trying to get into it with mods, either. Most forums I've been on, heated arguments (which I still don't even think this *was*) are allowed to play out, up until someone decides to start throwing irrelevant insults around, but you all are welcome to moderate as you see fit. I'm fairly new to this forum so I haven't really learned the various personalities around here, but it's threads like this that bring people's true colours to light.

Thanks for the input. I've looked at all of those aftermarket rearset options and a few others, and agree that they're all quite nice. Probably by the summer I'll be looking to get a set, but for now I'm just looking for the cheaper temp solution to ditching the chicken wings, most likely the s4r sets.

I've got all I need from this thread. Thanks everyone for their constructive input.
