Has anyone tried Gecko Racing rearsets? (990)

Postby Nukem » Tue Jan 13, 2015 9:58 am

Not having any luck finding a used left rearset for my 990, so looks like I'll have to pick up a new set. Does anyone have experience with these guys?

I'm sure I've seen one of the bikes in their description on here, but can't remember who. A site search came up empty.

These guys are cheaper than even the nearest competition by half, so of course that sets some alarm bells going - they look decent though.

From the pics they don't look very nice. Also the heel plate looks a bit small. Not sure, sometimes you get what you pay for...

That seems super cheap! Might be a bargain but you are taking a risk.

In the end I got a set of Sato rearsets for mine. They are beautiful in black but cost a bit more.

Actually I quite like the l;ooh of them. They are very simple, basic milled parts with no frills. but iId be a bit concerned about the strength of the footrest handers in a spill, they look really under engineered for solid footrests, come off at a track and they will really bend or snap. But at that price I would consider them disposable in a crash.

Hey Nukem, did you ever try these? I'm in the same boat as you after low siding my R yesterday. And things seemed to be going so well.....

If your bracket that attached to the frame isn't busted, try out MotoHooligans adapters plates and pegs. I've had them for a couple thousand miles now and really like having the adjust-ability of rear sets at half the cost.

Unfortunately that bracket is broken, and the price for it and a new shift lever from KTM is almost $200. So I'm going to try the Gecko's, I'll let everyone know how it turns out.
