inexpensive and easy.. go Pro-tek.. then again.. they LOOK a bit on the cheap and easy side..

If ya want decent ones that aint TOO expensive.. I saw a few different sets of Yana Shikis on flea-bay today..

but if ya want the Mercedes of Rearsets.. Gilles

I used Gilles on both my12R's and currently using Gilles on my CBR900RR. They are definately worth the money and gearshifting is definately waaay smoother on the 12R. They have 3 settings for gear lever throw and you can buy every part individually at a reasonable cost. Bought my first set at PDQ in slough.
I see you are in Reading, I lived in Burghfield for several years before I emigrated to the US in 2003. Reading traffic still a nightmare on saturdays?? LOL

I'm using Nabunaka rear sets and I love 'em. The build quality is great they are fully adjustable and they feel smooth as silk. The best part is you can get them in so many diff colors and they sell replacement parts. At $325 usd they aren't the cheapest option but more affordable than some.
here's the link NOBUNAKA RACING

My Danmoto rearsets arrived today:



I've made a short video detailing some of the initial quality issues that I noticed:



I am not sure whether I am going to keep them or not, but I thought this may give you guys an idea of what to expect.
