Lightech Adjustable Rearsets for Ninja 1000

Fits any year N1K. More information here:


https://www.sportbiketrackgear.com/l...1000-sx-11-14/

Review here:

Replacement Parts here: https://www.revzilla.com/lightech-re...ort=price_asc#


Retail for $500. Will sell for $200 including shipping in the US and Canada. Please email me at [email protected]

Wear marks on the heel guard (what powdercoated heel guards don't), and slight wear on the pegs themselves.
These were the only rearsets I was able to find that allowed me 4 options for adjustment. From stock, the amount of adjustability is about 1.5cm (up, down, forward, and back)

* Pegs back and down from stock

* Pegs up and forward stock
* Pegs back and up
* Pegs forward and down

There is no rear brake light switch with the kit, but you can buy one.

Did these aid in any way with the vibrations on the foot pegs?

No, no vibration increase. If there is, it's more than made up for in feel

Agurudev, go out and stand by your bike. Take one foot, and push down on the peg. Notice how it moves around? I did not like that feel, at all. The bike always felt like it was moving around, as if I were not well attached, and never could quite figure out was happening beneath me.

The solid mount rearsets stop this, and you get much more feel of the bike. Plus, the pegs sit lower because they are not rubber topped. This also helps with feel, as well as opening up the riding position. I The z1000 has the same frame and its pegs are solid. Maybe some more vibration, but maybe not. I never noticed much of a change.

Question Why is a rear brake switch needed?

Why would you need a rear brake switch for these?

The race oriented rearsets assume the bike will be on a track. At that point, you dont need the little spring and the switch to be there, so they make no provisions to use the stock parts. Not quite sure how this figures in for a ninja 1000, but anyway..

If you use this special "pressure bolt", you replace the bolt that holds the brake hose to your master cylinder. You connect this switch to the stock wires and when you press the brake pedal, pressure goes up and closes the switch , then the brake light comes on.
