RD250E rear sets for a race bike
« on: November 23, 2017, 09:14:32 PM »
Hi Guys, looking for some advice, my latest project is a 250e rolling chassis that I have bought from a forum member that I am turning into a race bike.... I need a bit of info in respect of rear sets... what fits and will work without too much modification, and feel comfortable for a 5ft 10 guy , the bike is currently fitted with a race seat....I have seen the Raask ones, but to be fair, thought they may be OK on a road bike, just looking to see what all you race Guys are using... all advice welcome, I am sure there will be plenty more questions to come...

Gooo luck with the race project.
I and most of my mates who race either make our own rearsets or weld some lugs onto the frame to take whatever you fancy, I’m probably going to fit some SES race sets from an R1 for sxample.
Pics of my home made ones below.

Thanks for the photos... really appreciated...I had looked at making my own plates up and doing something similar to you... but I also have decided that I will use some modern superbike ones onto plates or new mounts....I am trying to juggle practical and visually correct...as well as functional....
Thanks once again...

We tend to weld on 20-25mm bar drilled and tapped to 8mm. This is then bolted to the rear set lined up on the frame and the welded to it. These rear sets are of an R1 and then inverted upside down to get a foot peg position that is close to where the E/F pillion peg would have been.
R6 (5EB I think)  rear sets are cheap and were used for one of the other bikes.
