So, I too am happy with the standards but tell me, with the solid mounting, how much more are you feeling through the feet?

Hi Graeme,

Personally I've not noticed an increase in vibration from the rearsets, but there must be some increase, maybe boots absorb some?

  Its such a long while back I did this. I have 50K miles with Rizoma controls, and not needed new bearings at all. What I do I remember is being pleased with the increased tactile feeling from the rearsets and decent levers ( rizoma )...Im fairly sensitive to vibration, having held a chainsaw in my working life for many years - the solid mount rearsets do not give any problems in this regard....

Something else Id like to put out there @Max Headroom; if the actual footrest pegs, the bar your foot rest on when using them, if these could be a replacement to the originals, that would be fantastic. Mine are polished and smooth after 50K miles, and it's becoming an issue to keep your feet from slipping off, especially when wet....If you didnt insist on styling yours so differently from the originals, but anyway made them fixed in the same way, a pair could be easily bought separately, to replace worn originals....?
  I feel like a lobbyist for Rizoma.... ::)

Jesus Tim, your list just gets longer and longer :) I'm just working on the design of the lever/footpeg mounting so I'll try stick to the original interface for the peg so you can use it.

Keep you posted.

Hi all, just thought Id give you an update on progress and share a few more photos as things move forward. What started as me is now firmly a we as Andy from the Facebook group is facilitating machining and Nikk from here, Facebook etc is coming in too.
The sprocket cover has been a pain to design but I think when you see the pre-production piece youll agree its worth it. Its machined from billet 6082t6 aircraft quality aluminium. Were just deciding on the anodising. Weve also done a 2nd 3D print of the rearset bracket as there were a couple of tolerance issues and we can now move on to a pre-production piece.
Andy spotted a little problem in my plan and that is the Yam/Rizoma sprocket cover was only for use with the racing rearsets, so the plan now is to do a 2nd one that will work with the standard footrests. Were also thinking of another cover for the opposite side to remove that piece of crap plastic too. Please let me know your thoughts.

You'll notice how I blatantly ignore Tim's comment on fuel filler cap. :))

Ok just wanted to update everyone who isn't on one of the Facebook groups. We thought it would be good to do a version of the sprocket cover for those who don't want to fit rearsets. We also thought it might be nice to get rid of the piece of plastic on the other side so there will be 2 offerings for this side; one with another MT logo so you can have MT logos both sides or one matching the 2nd bit of design work on the sprocket cover. Cost of the sprocket cover will be 180 plus P&P the other cover is TBA but it will be a fair bit cheaper than the sprocket cover. Hopefully have some made by early July.
