Thought I'd start a thread for this aftermarket product now after seeing these ones on the Ninja 400 club Thailand facebook page.
I'm guessing they are locally made and not available outside of Thailand but thought they looked quite good.
I'm expecting I will add some to my bike when they become available from aftermarket parts manufacturers in time.

They look nice, I have a few friend that live in Thailand let me see what kind of price they are asking. Most anything is available for export from Thailand, you just have to watch where you buy it from. Give me a few days ill see what I can find out.

Thanks, I'm going to Thailand for two weeks in late July for a motorcycle tour / holiday in the Northern hill country.
May be a bit of extra luggage on the return trip home! :grin:

I’d be interested in buying depending on the price. Lol

There seems to be very little info about rearsets on the forum, so I though I'd at least update this thread with a couple of comparison pictures and my impression after riding the Woodcraft rearsets and adjusting them. You can see how far back the adjustment goes, WC rearset on the left is adjusted as far back and as low as adjustment allows. In the second picture you can see even at it's lowest, the WC set is quite a bit higher with the WC shift lever being about level to the stock peg.

I love them! For being painfully average, I feel like I have small feet at a 9.5U US in Vans. That means the distance between the peg and foot controls were a bit too wide to be comfortable. I was having to shift my feet quite a bit from the balls of my feet to almost my heel to shift.

I'll grant that the position of the stock rearsets is just fine, but the WC set have changed my foot position just enough to allow me to grip the bike more confidently with my legs.

I'm really happy with the hardware included with the set as well, considering I've had to take them on and off quite a bit trying to find the right fit; and I guess that's my only gripe. I had to redo my adjustments over and over again because where that's concerned, I have no idea what I'm doing.

Also for those interested in these you CANNOT use the OEM brake switch, you'll have to get a pressure switch to bolt into the top of your master cylinder so add $20 to the price of the set.

Lastly, the rear brakes use DOT4 only, while the front accepts DOT3 & DOT 4 brake fluid, so add another $10 to the set for brake fluid as you'll need to bleed the brakes once you're done. I'm all about saving money, so I purchased these rearsets from another forum member for a considerable discount on retail price.

Maybe we should add a section to the forum where members can post parts they are selling? I went the PayPal friends and family route, but generally it is good practice to pay the fees and get the buyer protection. That being said, thank you @scobility for being a stand up guy, I'm loving the parts.

I know this will make some members wince but typically in the past I have bought Chinese made rear sets off eBay for around the $100USD mark.
I choose ones that look good and I'm yet to have an issue with them. Most of my riding friends do the same, so we have bought a few sets now between us.
Just sayin and definitely not saying that the likes of Wood Craft etc aren't worth the money. It's just another (cheaper) option.
I haven't seen any cheapies available yet for the N400 though.

Normally I tend towards the cheaper option when I see the value in it; the reason I was so intent on Woodcraft rearsets is the reliefs in the pegs, and the ability to order specific parts in case anything is damaged in a crash. What draws me to their parts is just that, when something goes wrong, usually you can replace a couple of parts instead of the whole thing.

Speaking of Chinese made and eBay, I might need to get me some bar end mirrors. As glad as I am to have N300 mirrors instead of the stock ones, they are still a bit much for my liking.

Chinese rearset

Hi guys,

Long time no post, because I haven't yet received my bike from the dealer...
Anyway, I've just received a rearset from AliExpress.
I payed barely 100 dollars with free shipping. I Chose them in black, take a look at the pictures.

I was wondering if I have to create a new thread for when I will mount them or just post in this one?
See you soon

Thanks for that, these are the first Chinese rear sets I've seen so far. Will be interesting to see if you have any fitting issues, how they look on the bike and how the position feels.

You can post your info here in this thread, cheers.

There are some on eBay nowadays for around $100USD. It's hard to tell whether or not they have the adjustability I'd like. I'd really like to get my feet up and back like on my ZX-6RR.

I Just checked, and yes some just like mine are available on eBay, indeed.
I searched worldwide for "ninja 400 rearset".
Btw, Arashi is another brand avaible on AliExpress... But they don't seems to do some rearset for the n400 at the moment.
When ordering, for a good tracking and overall service and security, my preference goes first for eBay... AliExpress is a bit more versatile and doesn't get as cheap as it used to be in the past...
I have to say I m not really into Amazon but it's because of the searching tool I don't get used to :confused:

I might have my bike in 2 days so don't worry I will do the mod and post some pics.

Cheers

70/80 bucks SMOK rearset from AliExpress

Hi guys,

Back in the thread to bring some news... I've been trying to adjust right side of the Smok rearset I bought from AliExpress during 2 hours, yesterday.

Here are my conclusions:

As said in the description of the product, you need to change or modify the spring of the light switch because it's too short. There is a place to put the switch on the rearset, if you want to keep that feature.

Problem with the abs: the rigid hose that comes out on the upper side of the master cylinder is a bit short, and is pulled back and up a lot, better change it or kill it (I don't want to do so at the moment). I guess This is the part "goodridge " provided by yoshimura (or so? To confirm) when you buy them relocation plates.

Interference between the return spring of the brake pedal and the MC, which is very annoying cause it's seems that it would have been better to try it first before producing it?? Seriously, seems to be a mistake in the design.
I will post pics, my bike still have the guts open in the garage. Better stop before breaking when you get upset.

I don't want to make heavy mods over the braking, frame... And I don't think I could... so I guess I have lost few bucks, learning that.

See you soon, peace.

Lebibo

Edit: went back to the garage, put back the genuine stuff, took few pics of the right side with the rearset before doing so... I guess it won't help, sorry! I m alone and both my hands are taken by phone/tool/ bike.
I'm into something new, will post in this thread in a moment.
Bye

Relocation plates, easy mode?

Soooo... I really want to backward my pegs, I see this item on AliExpress, it's cheap, light (CNC aluminium), and comes in 4 different colours.

It seems to fit well on the right side (rear brake).
But I don't get well the comment of a buyer for the left side (clutch side)?

Is anybody recognize himself in this comment? Because there's no way to contact him through the app...

See you
