I thought ALL aftermarket rearsets are adjustable...don't get why they decided to make a model that had no adjustability at all ....needless to say I paid like $300 for a set of non-adjustable Woodcrafts, which was a waste of money.
I researched this very thing. My understanding is that Eric Wood feels that to many holes for adjustability decreases the integrity of the rearset in a crash. He also believes his product is totally race ready and doesn't need to offer that much adjustability.

I'd really love to, but I have a thing for being able to do everything myself. I've yet to do fuel injection mapping, but it sounds like fun.

Dammit! Now I really want a new bike!

I like to do everything myself too and so far I pretty much have been in the last few years, but there's no way I'd get a bike older than 10-12 years right now

The nice thing about bikes, as opposed to cars, is they're still quite a bit behind on technology (on purpose I assume), especially with sport bikes. Not a lot of fancy gizmos, especially on the cheaper bikes. Sure the top of the line superbikes have started to have a lot of electronic aids, but for the most part you can just leave that alone, usually there's not much to troubleshoot. But 600s and lower end sportbikes are pretty much as simply as they have been for a long time, aside from the fuel injection.

I'm no luddite. I'm an engineer for a software company. I do have a fascination for how things work, and a passion for learning anything and everything I can. The bike I ride is a choice. It was the model after which I lusted and still love. She's an old girl, but she's faithful and fun.

Is there an electronic doodad I wish she had? A low fuel light would be nice, but isn't essential.

Anti-wheelie? Traction control? ABS? I've always had those on every single bike I've ever ridden (as far back as the mini-crosser when I was five).

It's called my right hand.

LOL. Tell Eric thanks for everything he does, and he has the support of some lowly intermediate track rat in the North East.

Just gonna drop this idea here: MSM rearsets. Go.



I don't use WC rearsets - not enough adjustability for my tastes (I use Rizoma with their GP pegs option), but... I love just about every everything else he produces. I especially love his fork & frame sliders, as well as his case covers & folding toe pegs.
