Anyone with a Sato rearset how to?

Should be installing a set of Sato's on a 2007 R1 in the next 3 or 4 days. I've heard all kinds of complaints about how crappy the instructions are so I'm hoping someone took the time to make a how to to help your brothers out! I've searched on two forums with no luck.

The other other white meat.

I have thought about doing a How To many times, but there are so many parts, pictures, explanations that would have to be done to do it right I just say forget it and put them together.

As you know, the Sato's have a ton of adjustment so plan on spending some time getting them set perfectly for you which may involve taking some parts apart and putting them back together several times. The only major problem that I'm aware of is the Lower Motor Mount bolt(this is where your shift lever attaches). On some bikes, the bolt is in backwards, so I would suggest supporting the motor under the Manifold and removing the Motor Mount Bolt and turning it around. Other than that just start putting pieces together. Use BLUE Loctite on all non-moving parts.

Personally, I normally do a dry fit to make sure all the parts are there, then disasemble and start Blue Loctiting on reassemblly.

For your first time, I would estimate around 3-4 hours from start to finish.

Like R1L said: If you have any problems just post them up, and we will try to help the best we can.


Ride safe.

Unfortunately when I did mine I really didnt take enough pics to do a proper right up. I can only repeat what R1M said above.
The one thing that saved me hours of potential frustration was reading on here about the bolt (that is used as the shift lever pivot) that goes through the motor has to be removed then re-inserted from the opposite side of the bike. Other than that it seemed pretty straightforward install. I did mine in about 3 hours. Oh yeah, loctite is your friend. Use it on all the bolts, even the ones that were factory put together when you get the rearsets.
IMO it's well worth the expense and the slight hassle of install for the
Sato's. Quality goods that I wouldnt hesitate to recommend!!

They are fully adjustable rear sets. They allow you to reposition the the foot pegs and the controls separate of each other so they can sit higher and you can lean the bike further over/OR so you can make your legs and feet more comfortable by moving them up and down and forward and backwards. They have a smoother shifting mechanism, and are made of a stronger material than stock so they are less likely to break which has actually been a problem with the R1's.

like riley said, its night and day between stock and this, shifting smoothness is incomprehensible!!! the pegs have delrin onthe end of them so in the even of a lowside they are less likeley to break and just slide along... the foot position is adjustable forward backward up and down, the parts are seperate so if you go down, you dont have to replace a 250$ part, only a fraction of what one side would cost satosare really short pegs though, so if you are thinking about getting aftermarket rearsets make sure that you would want something like that on long rides becuase it gets a little cramped
