Which Rearsets?

So lucky me - I did some 'extra' work for my boss's super hot 23 year old daughter and she would like to buy me some motorcycle parts for Christmas - she actually said 'Ducati' bits but I figured maybe some adjustable rearsets for the Brutale - but which ones?

What have you guys spent your hard earned money on? I'd like some feed back on fit, finish and functional use - I weight my pegs quite a bit and like serrated solid pegs that have decent grip - any thoughts?

I have the Gilles rearsets on my Brutale... and really like them. They are very "grippy". I have noticed that you will need to use the supplied spacers when mounting, which brings the position of your feet out a bit -- your feet will be placed a little wider than OEM peg position.

I have had to make the same decision recently. Wasn't sure what way to jump, but after a fair bit of searching I decided to go with the Moto Corse rear sets. They are very simple and very light. The ride height is slightly higher (they have a two position mounting, but nothing worth talking about). They are pretty gripping also. Have a look at their web site as they have them mounted on their show bike which in itself has some very very nice touches to it.

Regards

Simon.

I have the Satos on my SPR. Very solid, lightweight and extremely grippy.

all this talk about rearsets is very interesting, I'm sure- but I'd like to hear more about the more important point : "So lucky me - I did some 'extra' work for my boss's super hot 23 year old daughter "

Thanks for all the replies

Yes - and she's a billionaire and a real darling [i'm not kidding] The trouble with 'things' that you cant have - you just want them all the more...... er, back to the rear sets -

Someone told me the satos tend to flex a bit - true or not?

I have the Rizoma sets. The pegs will cut you and they are very adjustable.

Confused?
