Woodcraft Kawasaki Ninja 650R 06-08 Complete Rearset Kit
pretty darn good!!!
I'd like a little more adjustment so I could stretch out a little more but some homegrown engineering will take care of that. I know they are for track use only but, seeing as how they will most often be fit to a street legal bike, some changes could be addressed; ie. the brake light switch. Little gripes, for sure, but overall, very pleased with the product and the price..

Great product as expected from Woodcraft
Install: easy using existing SV levers. No issues. Brake light worked without additional woodcraft pressure switch or spring.
Pegs are solid as a rock. Texture on the pegs grips very well to the extent that it may tear up bottoms of shoes if they are soft - but is sure to prevent slipping off pegs (a very bad thing!).
Moves back and up from standard peg position on SV650N as stated for a very good position.
Problems: The right side does not have a heal guard. I have seen others using this product without the guard but this exposes the rear brake cylinder assembly. By filing the mounting holes on the stock guards you can mount them to protect the assembly. This restricts the heal from turning and pointing the toe of the boot out as much as the left side. Not a real problem but would have liked to see some more engineering on this point.

MONEY WELL SPENT? I THINK SO!
These rearsets have got to be the best bang for the buck they look super fantabulous on my 07 gsxr 750 and add a degree of control and comfort that you would otherwise have to pay billions of dollars to obtain. The only thing i would like to have is some longer pegs they are a bit small but seriously not enough to make a difference.

Just Buy Them- You Know You Want Them
I've been eying these rear sets for about five years now. I used jack up plates to keep the cost down, but after having to replace a shifter and brake pedal, I finally decided to go with Woodcrafts, because the price of OEM parts (even cheapo aftermarket parts) are SO expensive. Just have your Loc-tite and grease ready- they assemble so easily. The fit is so precise and tight. They now come with the black plastic buttons on the ends, so you don't have to hunt those down. The pegs were actually shorter than I had thought, which is a good thing, knurled all the way up to the outer lip.
My bike is doing double-duty, riding street and track. My only complaint is that the knurling is so aggressive that on the shifter pedal, that unless you're wearing real riding boots, your shoes are going to get torn up. I don't always feel like wearing my Sidi boots, so it's really my fault, but I addressed the issue by wrapping the shifter tip with duct tape- the knurling will still bite through the tape, so you'll still get friction against your shoe, but the bite just isn't as deep,
All in all, the product is SUPER-SOLID and I am very pleased with the quality of the rear sets. I have not yet crashed with these, but I have confidence that they will hold up just fine, saving me money in replacement parts in the long run.

Very well put together item. Everything fit and work's great. Although the diamond cut shifter is starting to wear a mark in my 300$ Sidi riding shoes. Maybe a rubber sock on the peg?
