Yoshimura Rearset Brackets Kawasaki Ninja 250R / 300
Good option to move the stock rear sets, but not far enough
I ordered this bracket to move the stock rear sets on my wife's 2011 ninja 250r. The install was easy, once I remembered that the shift rod threads are rightly tighty on one side and lefty tighty on the other. My only complaint is that they are too short. They don't move your feet back far enough to get into the more aggressive position that you would get with a normal super sport. compared to my gsxr 600 I'd like the brackets to be at least 1" longer.
I'm also adding a set of woodcraft clip-ons which should make the overall position more aggressive and track ready.

Fraction of the price of adjustable rearsets.
Superior to adjustable footpeg. Only drawback is, when using the highest position, the shift rod is a little long for GP shift pattern. Requires some additional trimming of the counter sprocket cover and downward adjustment of the shift lever is limited due to rear rod joint hitting bottom of peg (depending on type of peg used).

Better foot positioning & more adjustable!
With the stock setup, my heel was lifting off the peg while changing gears. With the Yoshimura rearset brackets installed, with the straight shift rod they supply, you can adjust the angle of the shifter to the peg for a better fit on ANY foot. Not to mention, the 2 new mounting locations create a more aggressive riding position, that I prefer over the stock setup. These brackets gave me all the adjustability that I needed & then some, without having to spend $300-$500 for new adjustable rearsets. I highly recommend this product.

Yoshimura Rearset Risers 2012 Ninja 250
This is an excellent product that does exactly what I needed to! Raises the rearsets and gives more ground clearance and I don't need to spend nearly as much extra money on rearsets. Now my ground clearance issue is from the kickstand, so the risers add plenty.

Cheapest Deal for Rearsets
I've had these brackets on my 'lil Ninja 250 and from comparing stock foot placement and now - it's quite substantial. These brackets were somewhat a disappointment because of the limitation of how far you can push your rear sets back (for there are only two options), but I find it to be enough.
The only problem I ran into is that when you install the brackets, you will need to cut you rear brake line shorter to prevent the line from kinking: because you essentially will be pushing the rear sets closer to the back of the bike. Other than that, being 5'7'', I can totally feel a difference in ergonomics: I have better confidence while in the twisties than ever before. Not only that, but it did rise the pegs higher: leaving me not to worry about my feet grabbing the road on aggressive leans.
As the cheapest way to getting racing-style rear sets, this attachment is a great deal because you won't ever have to worry about ever going down and bending up your $300 rear sets. Will soon experiment with attaining some clip-ons next...

Great Product, Perfect with clip ons and aftermarket rearsets
Got these installed in 15 mins. Great product and no issues. These combined with aftermarket rearsets and clip ons make for a perfect set up for the 300.

Perfect with WoodCraft Clipons
Very affordable rear sets. Perfect when paired with WoodCraft Clipons. For ABS models, you will have to unhook the ABS hose/wire from the clip in order to install the rear set (otherwise it would not reach). Hopefully in the long run, it's not over stretching but so far the tension is not so tight. It was difficult for me to unhook the wire, but eventually got it out.

Much better than the stock position
I am 5' 10" and this put my body in a much better position. Feels more natural to me. Add some clip-ons and you'll be in heaven. Highly recommended if you are uncomfortable in the stock position or just want a more aggressive seating position with clip-ons. Well worth the price.
