HP REARSETS A MUST BUY
« on: April 13, 2016, 11:22:46 PM »
 :028: :028 just fitted the HP REARSETS and wow the difference in the comfort of the seating position is awesome!!!!  Just made the leg room perfect  if your tall then a must buy
Bit pricey but worth every penny look good too the adjustment is huge both up down and back worth a look ?? :062:

Agreed. One of the best mods I've done, and the riding position is much better. :046:

Does the rear sets give the legs more room too stretch.? ie knees not so bent .?
Theres a US firm doing some lower pegs for a round £150 ish but I would have to alter the gear and clutch levers too suit

The HP rear sets have a huge range of adjustment up down and back !

If you cant find the ideal position with these bad lads i doubt very much you ever will

I am never keen on just lower pegs as ground clearance is compromised

I believe it is Gilles who makes the rearsets for BMW, so yes they are making rearsets for the S1000XR.

Nice set and the added range makes it easier for me to get my legs down. I have them set slightly back to get my legs down more easily.

I will be happy with that price! here they are $1000 for the set

I ordered mine from Germany, one of their BMW resellers and paid the cost plus shipping and I believe it came out to just under $700.00 last year.
