Have a 1st gen naked with the Woodcraft/CFM Race rearsets. No photos to show, though :-[. Did you have a question about them or did you just want to see how they looked installed on a 1st gen?

Wacky-- All that black anodized/powder coating looks awesome. 8)


I have to ask, though, are the bars being targeted for stealth black?

At the moment, no. I just threw on the stockers to put on the hand guards. I may try a different option down the road with the hand guards and bars. I had a pair of SM Type 1's on there. I really really liked them for highway and general riding. The stock bars are just too up right at times.

But I may leave them and get my clipons on and worked out.

I really hope my back and wrists can hold on for many more years, as I surely don't want to give up my clip ons...[rubbing hands with evil grin]

Where did you get your riser plates at?
those are "nate's plates"  ;)  IIRC, it adds 1.5" back and up.  the woodcrafts there are the more aggressive angled and also add 1.5" so essentially i had 3" up n' back rearsets from stock.

i don't run that setup anymore, mostly cause i munged up 1 of the relocator plates in a lowside on the track. good thing is the relocator plate bent a little but the rearset was intact (minus the peg that took most of the force and ground down to 1")

cool thnx for the pics. No to those of you that have it. If I buy that set from 2wheel junkie, will it come with EVERYTHING i need to install it? All the rods, nuts, etc will be included right? Especially the rear brake set, will it be made to fit into the stock's settings for brakes? Or are there some types of adjustments needed?

If you buy the full set with levers, then yes, it'll come with it all. There's two sets. A $200 set (which is just pegs and brackets) and $300 set (which has brake lever, shifter, pegs and brackets and assorted stuff).

You'll loose the ability of your brake light switch if you get the Woodcraft brake pedal. If you run the Woodcraft pegs and brackets with the stock pegs, you're okay. You can run the Woodcraft brake pedal and get an inline pressure switch for the brake light and run that to be legal. Also.. you won't have provision for brake return spring. I've been running mine with out a return spring for 2k now with out any issues.

??? My brake light works fine from the rear pedal with my rearsets. I had done some unrelated prior monkeying with the switch and actuator, so all I had to do when installing the rear sets was to bend a clip/spring to get everything working. Hmmmm, guess this blind squirrel found his acorn... Score one for the shade-tree wanna-be moto mechanic! ;D
