98-2001 5th gen Rearset adapters - Sebspeed Customs

Question

Hey all, this has been in the works for a bit and I'm finally ready to make an initial run available.

 

I developed this rearset adapter while building a custom '99. I had a set of CBR929/954RR Sato brand rearsets on hand, and so developed the adapters around them. I have designed them to place a racing-style 954RR rearset in the oem VFR peg position at the lowest, most forward position when the new rearsets are installed in the CBR orientation. This allows track or race style "up & back" adjustment. Because of the 2-pc design of most racing rearsets, the plates can also be flipped Left to Right to allow the pegs to be positioned lower than stock VFR position.

 

Can be set up for Standard or GP style reverse shifting 

 

I am selling these adapters as a kit at a pre-order price of $140 for the 1st 10 orders. All orders beyond the 1st 10 will be $150.

 

What you receive in the kit:

- 1 pair billet 6061-T6 aluminum adapter plates in Bare Bright or Satin Brushed finish (sorry, no anodize option at this time)

- 1 set of 6061-T6 spacers

- stainless steel hardware

 

To complete this modification to your bike, you will also need to purchase an oem or aftermarket set of rearsets made to fit a 00-2003 CBR929RR or 954RR (fit is the same). I chose to leave this option to the end user rather than A) maintain an inventory and B) limit style and selection. The world is your oyster folks, there are a great many options out there for CBR sets!

 

There ARE a couple caveats, as with any custom installation:

- depending on your choice of aftermarket set, you may need to use a pressure style brake switch rather than your oem switch

- the stock heat shield is deleted

- extreme peg position adjustments may require adjustment of the brake line(s) and/or brake line replacement

- new levels of comfort and/or on-track prowess may cause untold amounts of envy from other VFR riders...

Hi Seb, I joined VFRD this morning and I am about to start a 5th gen project. Have you still got space on your list for another set to the UK?  Thanks, Skiddy

Seb and my fellow rear set adaptor buyers,

 

I am thinking of buying a 954 trackbike to act as donor for the bits I want to swop onto my 5th gen project. am I right in thinking that the complete front end and rear end will fit relatively easily?  Will the swingarm and rear suspension mount/shock need spacers/adaptors in any way? I'm guessing the rear subframe will need a fair bit of work to adapt!

 

just don't want to buy something that isn't really viable. Happy for any top tips and sorry if this is old ground for many.

 

Cheers, Skiddy

Front end will be pretty simple, swingarm will need spacers to fit properly. I made a set for another member here but he hasn't been around lately.

understood Seb, thanks for the advice. If you think he has lost interest I will take those off your hands if you have a price and throw them in with my adaptors!

I shipped them out long ago, he just hasn't finished his bike. I have the notes somewhere for the parts, let me look.
