Rearsets, found another option!

Hey, just to let everyone know, Nichols makes rearsets for the 888, my mechanic said the 888 and carburated monsters have the same specs on the rearsets, so these should work!!!

http://www.nicholsmfg.com/rearsets.html

I personally don't like the Cycle Cat ones very much, too much metal there. Confirm this 888 rearset compatibility anyone? Anyways, thought someone might enjoy a bit more rearset choice. Come on SpeedyMoto, make us rearsets !!

Drummer who rides, or rider who drums?... hmmm...

Re: Rearsets, found another option!

shoot nichols an email and ask em.

but since they list the SS as well and i have tried those lemme venture a guess
the SS rearsets can fit on the monster, but the part of the frame where they attach is at a different angle making the rearsets WAY high and back

when i used to ride behind my wife when she had some on her monster...i could read the brand printed on the bottom of her boots

Interesting, well since I've started scraping my boots every now and again I might welcome a higher position. Or maybe I should take a couple track classes

Re: Rearsets, found another option!

we should all get together and send an email to nichols and demand them to make some rearsets for monsters. It's weird, you would think an outstanding shop like nichols would've whipped those out by now, or a long time ago. Come on guys, lets band together

LIGHT SPEED TOO SLOW, LUDICROUS SPEED GO!!!!!

Re: Rearsets, found another option!

true! Wish they make true monster ones, but my mech. said the 888/851 ones would work, not the SS.
