Gecko Racing Rearsets

Just installed a new set of Gecko Racing rearsets and am pretty happy with them. For around $265 they are quite a bargain. They come fully disassembled and are a bit like a puzzle to assemble, but not too difficult. The instructions while seemingly complete, don't appear to have survived translation fully. Took me about an hour with minimal cussing and no injuries. I ourchased the rear rider pegs as well, but did not install them. The best part, is the heel room is now infinite and the exhaust hanger is much better than stock.

Looks really familiar (and great). I only wish I had ordered extra foot pegs and shift pedals in the other colors so I could mix it up a bit. I may yet order them, just need to bite the bullet. I almost went with the gold, since I have the gold Rizoma bars, but thought it may be too much.

These sets are nice on Monsters, gaining more popularity around here on other bikes as well.

For those who bought this set, did you also get the hydraulic brake switch? If so, did you have to bleed the brakeline when installing?

I did get the switch and bled the brakes. I took it as an opportunity to replace my rear brake reservoir with a billet aluminum one as well. Here is a picture of the switch installed.

I got the switch as well. Without it you will not have a brake light when using the rear brake.

Thanks. Planning to purchase those rearsets and brake switch as well. Just wondering if it is really necessary to bleed the brakeline when installing the switch

I'm planning on getting a set of these as well. To install the switch you depressurize the brake line because you are installing a new screw that has the switch at the top. Need to bleed after, no way around it.

It says on the webpage that it only takes 5 minutes to install the brake switch... this is where it gets confusing. No way this is a 5-minute job if bleeding is involved. The reason I'm asking...
