RSD Rear-Sets: Not for the Novice
First, kudos to Revzilla for their usual quick shipping and spot on delivery.
Now, allow me to give a play by play, from opening the box, to riding impressions.

The shipping overpack was very good (thx Revzilla!)
The package from RSD is gorgeous! Shame to trash it...
The parts were shrink wrapped to corrugated pasteboard cards, and loosely dropped into the larger package. My instincts say it could have used a little more padding to protect the goods on a really bad trip, but nothing was damaged, so perhaps I was expecting the worst.
I scanned through the instructions before opening all the packages and laying the parts out in the same groups they were wrapped in. The instructions were three pages of color pics and a few black & white line drawings.
First impressions? Nice parts!
After deciding what I needed to remove, which is only vaguely mentioned in the instructions, I started to dismantle my bike. It was a necessity to pull the exhaust in order to remove the mid-controls. Honestly, it was just nice that it was out of the way.
Next, the instructions advise that a longer rear brake hose will be required. That's it. No details, no specs, no other information at all. Most of you are going to stop dead at this point and wonder what, and where to get a new brake hose. Just a hint, the OE hose is a specially formed hardline, with a port for your rear brake light switch. You can't just grab a longer replacement. You'll probably wind up with an aftermarket hose in the vicinity of 18" long. If you want to keep a rear brake switch, it will be easiest to use a banjo bolt brake switch. NONE of this is addressed in the instructions. Zero. Zip. Nadda.
I was prepared, just barely, so I commenced assembly according to the instructions. It isn't too hard to figure out what goes where, but there are small parts in the package, never mentioned in the instructions. The pretty color photos? well, they are about the size of a postage stamp, so...
That's the one BIG criticism I have for RSD. For all the money they spent on the over pack, printed in color with all the usual logo frenzy, I would have preferred a white box with truly detailed instructions, including legible photos.
After assembly, the nightmare of bleeding the rear brake will check your reality. This is another place where a novice will freeze up. The mounting position of the master cylinder makes traditional bleeding of air difficult. I used a pressure bleeder to push fluid from the caliper, up to the reservoir. Even then, it took a few strokes of the pedal in the old way to get a firm pedal.
Riding impressions: After reinstalling the pipe, and making sure the brake wouldn't touch down, I adjusted the brake and shift lever to a wild guess starting point. The first time I put my feet up, I knew both needed to go up a bit. This is easy with the shifter. Loosen the jamb nuts on the linkage, adjust it a half turn or so, and tighten the jamb nuts. The brake lever was a different story. I found the threaded push-rod on the master cylinder was just a tad short of what I wanted. I'm kinda stuck with what I got. No room to go down, no range to go up.
When I hit the road, it took some getting used to. Muscle memory is a devil. It takes a while to stop putting your foot in the wrong place. One you get that sorted out, and maybe make a few more minor tweaks to the height of the levers, you are good to go.
The rear-sets are comfortable, and well made. They work as expected. I anticipated a lot of vibration through the pegs, but it never appeared.
I would suggest that the pegs are about an inch too short, but that may be something I get used to. I feel like my foot is rolling to the outside occasionally.
All in all, I would recommend this product to others, but with caution about the unknowns surrounding the rear brake hose (why does RSD not sell a ready made solution?), and warning about the limited use of the quite poorly prepared instructions. (Just a suggestion, field test with your target buyers) These two points could have earned 5 stars...
Again, Kudos to Revzilla. Mediocre thumbs up to RSD.

Do you need a new brake line to go with these? If so please give a part # Thanks.
A shopper on Jun 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes.
No one has suggested any parts to help.
I had a custom line left over from another project.
I bought a 2014 sporster and want to move the rest sets back to fit my riding style. Would these fit my bike? If so, what options are available for my exhaust choices?
A shopper on Apr 17, 2014
I would like to know the answer to both of the above questions. However I have a 2015 model and want to know about compatibility? Waiting on revzilla's word then I can purchase..
A shopper on Feb 21, 2015
Aside from getting a 2-1 exhaust, what else do i need to get and keep in mind upon purchasing this? do i need to get other parts inorder to install this?
A shopper on Jun 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: A 2-1 exhaust may not be required.
A new brake line and rear brake switch solution is definitely required.
There are several ways to solve this.
I have Vance & Hines typical Short Shot pipes on my 2010 Iron, do you know if these rear sets clear the pipes OK?
Randall H on Feb 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm affraid they won't. Upper (rear) exhaust pipe will interfere.
Can you use passenger pegs with the rear sets on a Harley?
