Airhead rearsets?


Can anyone give feed back regarding the Raask and Veloci rearsets (and any other plug and play makes). From what I can make out the Veloci uses existing frame holes and the Raask has a bolt on backing plate (this from pics on Omar's). Do the Raasks hand lower or are more comfortable. Pricing looks very similar.

That is the Veloci set I am referring to above - how do you think they compare to the Raask set on the same site?

No experience with the veloci. Had some Raask's on a r65. Fit and worked fine, a little crude, the mounting plate was just a cast hunk of steel. No instructions if I remember right. If I would have kept the bike I would have redone the mounting plate in aluminum.

I will post some pictures later today

Give me some time and I will post a BUNCH of pictures of the veloci rear sets for you, as well as good explanation of the issues I encountered. You can see them on my bike in the pictures here. I have a bunch of close up detailed shots I took durring the install that I will post. I took the pictures because there didn't seem to be any good pictures of them on the internet.

I used a modified Raask set-up on a track bike and frankly preferred the stock footpegs even for track use. The pieces bolted to the ear that supports the stock passenger pegs and resulted in pegs that were less solid than the original pieces. Was disconcerting to have the footpegs give a little when shifting your weight.

Stock airhead footpegs don't drag before the heads if you've got any kind of decent suspension on the bike. They're solid and they're not too badly located, imho.

imho, fwiw, ymmv,
