Anyone else with Rizoma Rear sets on their F4?

Hi guys,

The other day after a bit of track time, my Rizoma Rear sets shed a few parts on the way home. Some where on the highway between my the track and my home lies my gear shift rod.

Since Rizoma do not supply parts for their rearsets (unlike Gilles, why of why didn't I buy Gilles???) I am hoping some one else on here has Rizoma rearsets and can measure up the length of the connector rod, so that I can get one from a local supplier.

Cheers,

Robin.

Hi Robin,
Sorry to hear about that rod, mine lost a bolt just as I was going over Sunset corner. All fixed now , I was lucky. Anyway the rod for those Rizzom's is 145mm long, that is just the rod without the end pieces. I plan to replace mine so I can have a little more adjustment, maybe 155-165.
Let us know if you find a supplier in Perth willya, I think I might have met you at one off the Trackdayz.
I'm going racing with the beast this season and am now looking for a carbon cover to go over my clutch case, some blokes pointed me in the right direction, do you have one on?

Ahh nice one...

Yes i saw you at the racecraft in October, you were novice yeah with the fully prepped MV??? Nice looking machine!!! I was in Adv 1, turned up that morning with the hope that I could grab a spare spot, and by the second session I asked to be signed off on a race license.

This was me...


Thank you for that, it must be an Italian thing, shedding bits, my Rizoma's fell apart 3 times that day, twice at the gear linkage point and finally the gear shift rod.

I have been on Probolt and they stock a range of nuts and bolts, as with all things that can be purchased in Australia you need to grip your ankles and be ready to take a good hard shafting when it comes to price. But I have ordered a replacement item for just under $40AUD delivered. Other sizes are available too. http://www.probolt-australia.com/Products/0003000e0007

I don't have a cover for the clutch case, I turned up at the track with a roll of black fibre tape, some cable ties and a bottle of water. I plan to do at least one race next year but I'll be riding the wife's R1, and that will be on a shoe string budget too. In theory I could throw that down the road 3 or 4 times before I would run into the same repair bill as an MV.

If you want to try a local supply to Perth, your best bet would be Rilusi in Morley. I've had a bit of a search for Clutch covers on the net but without any luck so far.

How could the whole rod fall off? Never seen Rizomas but being attached to the shift lever and the gearcase arm one would think it would stay on somehow.

Why not just make your own? All you'd need would be a pair of Heim/Rose joints and a piece of rod which you could thread for them.

Personally I like the Satos on mine.

We can get you the spares. Just email us and we'll send you the parts fiche so you can tell us what parts you'll need. Takes about a week to get them in to us after your order. If you're in a pinch, I can let you have the parts off my bike first. All spares for all Rizoma products are available from us.

Cheers!

Wow, thanks Cazadore, I have found a local supplier that can provide these rods, they won't be a Rizoma rod, but I'll live.

But thank you anyway.

Rizoma does supply repair parts for their rearsets - we stock some and can get most in 2 weeks or less....

If you still need it contact us,.

If some vendor told you they can't get parts - slap them, and e-mail the info to Rizoma...

Thats a real bummer mate- i have the Gilles and to make sure they stay in place i use loctite on all the bolts and linkage rods-

Im sure you can get some spare parts if you explain the scenario to Rizoma, id drop them a polite and woeful email :-)

Good luck
