Handlebar/Rearset Combo

Recommended Posts

suspiciouspackage
I like the upright position of the FZ as it is but personally I'd like something more aggressive. Something I just saw and absolutely love is this. Many times while I'm riding, I catch myself leaning forward because it feels more natural to me. And from what I remember the general rule is that the lower your handlebars, the further back your rearsets should be. I would love to replicate the combo from what I linked but I don't know if that would be possible. Can anyone suggest anything?

Yeah, paulie is running the m1 bars from suburban machinery with graves rear sets i think? I actually have the m3 bars from suburban and love how it gives me more of an agressevie feel, but due to not having rear sets, its super uncomfortable
 
But yeah suburban machinery m1 bars w/ graves rear sets, i think your looking about $800

I have the Gilles Tooling rearsets from Yamaha UK, not the Graves, just FYI.
 
Rearsets are in the highest, most rearward position, and it's awesome!

If you go that low you almost certainly will have to move the pegs back ( not necessarily up that depends on you pelvis leg geometry but probably). Otherwise the angle between your back and upper leg will get too acute for comfort and quick reaction. I completely agree with this direction as ( I have said many times) the MT07 has a very poor weight bias. It is wayyyyy too far back and needs more weight on the front end. Doing this will help load the front ( just as importantly help UNload the soggy rear) and give you more front grip and improve turn in.

I've been waiting for the guinea pig - I mean Paulie :-D - to finish his build just for these two components. I already know what else I want to do with my bike, but this part was gonna be pricey and a little trial and error, so I figured why not wait since I knew Paulie was trying it out first.
 
Really interested to hear how if feels after some extended riding sessions.

Can you lock the steering with those bars with the tank plastics? Or do the tank plastics get in the way of the new handle bars?
