Is there any rear sets available for the fz-09?

Those rear set looks nice though.
I need to replace my brake pedals so I thought it would be a good excuse to buy some new rear sets. Is it worth it or should I just replace my pedal?

That's really up to you, I'd say. Have you ever ridden with solid mount footpegs? It's a different feel. Personally I prefer solid mount pegs over the OEM folding ones.

I've never had but my plan was to eventually change the rear sets also. What is the price for just the OEM brake pedal?

Unless I'm mistaken, changing rearsets on this bike will be a B!$ch to change, as one of the mounting points is the swing arm through bolt. Too much work for me personally, as I've already converted my stock rearsets to GP shift.

maryleejayne, how badly do you want to? To get the left hand side one off you have to pull out the swing arm pivot bolt, similar to installing a shock.

Some where on the forum there was discussion of it but I can't find it. Short version:

Put bike on front and rear stands.

Take off seat and tank.

Put straps on both sides of the rear subframe by the battery.

Lift from above so that there is neither pressure or tension on the rear shock. Remove the upper shock mount bolt.

Take the nut off the swing arm, it is the top mount of the right hand rear set.

Use a long bolt or rod a bit smaller diameter than the swing arm pivot bolt to push it out.

Leave the pusher there until you slide the pivot bolt back into keep the swing arm in place.
