rearsets question

I'm rebuilding my bike and my next part are rearsets. What brands are you guys using I plan on going to gp reverse shift pattern, I mainly ride on the street here in Chicago. Sato seemed kind of expensive so I was thinking vortex, but I also seem some on eBay for $200 with guaranteed life time warranty. Any other brands and any experience with the eBay rearsets. Thanks in advance...

Sato's the only way to go! Bar none, the best!

I went with Sato's...little more expensive, but quality is worth it.

I wanted the satos but I went with the vortex because of price and part availability. And for track days or racing if you were to go down and need a part you have a lot better chance of finding vortex parts in the pits.

Hell, the Vortex pegs also function pretty successfully as sliders, as well, and stay on......not so for other rearsets

Retail is for squids. Buy like a pro at Superbike Supply.

Attacks > Vortex.

I have Attack, Sato and Gilles on my bikes....kinda favor the attacks, but the shifting with the Gilles on my CBR is super slick. Also have Sato's shift shaft brace on the CBR....worth the money
