Those who have been following along in our build thread know that we often work closely with Woodcraft on products for bikes we specialize in. The FZ-10 is no different and we're now working on rearsets and a stator cover protector. This thread is about the rearsets.
Here is an overlay of Woodcraft's current R1 rearset on the FZ-10:
As you can see, the FZ's foot pegs are lower - much lower than the R1's aftermarket kit. About 2" lower and 5/8" back in the lowest position. In my opinion, this is going to be too aggressive for the typical FZ-10 owner. The comfort of the bike is a major appeal, so detracting from that would seem to be a major misstep. Correct me if you disagree.
That said, this is the current design:
It's hard to tell what changed based on that view alone, but the new low position is about .75" higher and .625" back when compared to stock. As of today, the pegs can be adjusted 1.5" higher (from the low position) to answer your canyon carving or track day needs.
We're working on getting some parts printed within the next couple weeks so we can see how it all feels. My gut says 0.75" higher in the lowest position will be OK on this bike since there is a lot of leg room.
Interesting to see the difference in height between the two. I would say somewhere in the middle will be perect for most FZ-10 riders, but if being used at the track then the R-1 rearsets would be best.

Guys, sorry for not responding sooner. For some reason, this forum is really patchy with sending thread update emails. Weird.
Anyway, the last conversation with Woodcraft was a ship date of 4/21/17. Clearly, that did not happen. Will follow up with Woodcraft again on Monday to get a better date. They had a few supplier issues along the way...
stealthunion: I am interested in the OEM bar if you still have them. How much shipped to Seattle, WA? Thanks!

exuptoy: Hi guys, newbie here from the uk. Just felt I had to register as I have today fitted the Leo to my 2018 10. Awesome sound on it but still a little loud with my Scorpion RP1-GP. Hope you guys like it.
