Has anyone found rearsets for their hyper that are reasonably priced? My friend just bought some decent rearsets for his 1098 for the the mid $300's. Everything I've seen for the Hyper is close to at least double or more. Why are they so much more expensive for the hyper?

There's a lot of material and machining required to make a set of rearsets for the Hyper. Look at your stock pieces, and compare them to a superbike, for example. It's much more complicated.

The least expensive "real" set of rearsets I've seen for our bikes are the ones from Woodcraft... (By real, I mean the entire assembly, not just a different peg, and it changes the position of the pegs and controls...)

I was looking at those and I actually found them for $500, which isn't terrible. It's just a lot of money when you are supporting another race bike too.:D

Another point about the woodcrafts that makes them "least expensive" is replacement parts are readily available and very reasonably priced. Viewed from this perspective, I don't think there is any other option worth considering for the Hyper.

Also, Im not aware of any others that come close to the gain in cornering clearance. I assume thats why you ask the question in the first place?

Love my Woodcrafts, well worth the money spent, not to mention how great they are on the track.

Yep. I would like to rearsets as I want the ground clearance. I am at the track a ton and want to be able to ride the hyper sometimes. I also go to Deals Gap every year and the hyper will soon be my only street legal bike.

I also like the feel of rearsets better.

Nice job, Shenders!

Have you encountered side stand clearance issues since your install?

I keep promising myself that I will come up with a relocation solution. I am (afterall) a pro...crastinator. Looks as if you have the skills and possibly the motivation I lack.

If you're ultra-cheap and have a little spare time, buy the ~$300 1098 rearsets and mill up some brackets - That's what I did and it's working well for me.
Ingenious mate! That looks like a brilliant way to make rear sets for this bike almost affordable.

someone pls manufacture and sell those convertors
A chunk of billet and a chunk of time equals a chunk of change.

There is no way that Shenders mount and the $300 rearsets would save you money over the woodcrafts unless it's your own time and the billet is left over (free).

OTOH, I like this design better than the Woodcraft. Its a little more rearward and those pegs are nice and chunky. Again, good job. Again, this is not a cheap option.

As to the clearance issue; It's only been a problem on some of our off-to-flat camber uphill hairpin lefts. I'm a one cheek off, let the road come to my knee if it needs to street rider. Now that I know of the issue, it's easy to avoid, but it does make for an interesting moment when first discovered.

quite simply i like the fact that my hyper and 848 share the same wheels and hence stand s as it makes tracking easy. now if i can share the same rearset parts even better
i have woodcrafts on my 848 and love em despite them scratching my swingarm on the left but meh... im over it.

I have got Spider Rearsets on mine





I had them sent over from Italy. They cost 350 Euros.
Unforunately the website is not working at the moment so I can't give any more details. But if anyone wants a contact, let me know.
