    So your tip is to loctite everything before installing. Any other tips you can think of?
    They seem more than solid enough, they're made from billet and the stock rearsets are cast so if anything I'd expect the china rearsets to be stronger. When the bearings do wear out the worst that's going to happen is a bit of slop develops in the brake / shift pedals but I don't expect that will become an issue.

    My woodcraft clipons have also faded worse than any of my other china ebay CNC pieces too so just because it's more expensive doesn't automatically mean the quality is any better. I also feel much more ripped off about the woodcraft clipons as for the money one would expect them to be hard anodized not cosmetic anodized like the china stuff...

    Yes. Take every bolt apart/out and loctite and put back together. These sets come without any instructions so watch this video. There's a lot of "Where does this go?" without it...




    They feel good, puts my feet in a better position, so I'm not dancing on the pegs. Looks good and don't feel cheap. Make sure you have a good set of Allen wrenches, the stainless bolts are soft.

    Hope you don't mind giving a ride report after 1000 miles. I've been seriously considering the ebay rearsets.
    I have had mine on for almost 10,000 miles on them and not a single hitch !!

    Isn't that the truth. I was waiting for a while for someone in China to copy the woodcraft setup lol, it sure is a lot less complicated than rearsets haha. But I couldn't wait so I went ahead and went with the woodcraft. lol

    Just a heads up, I got the 1" option, using the up position it does not clear majority of windscreens if you have one installed, I have a 6" and a 14.5" height, I had to modify the 14.5" to allow the reservoir to clear it on full left turn.

    Down position, bars without grips are 1/4" from fuel tank full turn, originally I wanted to go down but it's not possible to clear cables unless your willing to re route everything. So I went with up, full video of my FZ09 projects on my YouTube/AGWAG

    Good luck

    You are going to like those CRG Arrows, Awesome view and solid as a rock. I got 2 because I didnt know how good the visibility was, but if I had to do it over, I now know I could get a better view from 1 arrow than from both the stock mirrors!
