Diamond Racing products

Postby Kwacky » 16 Mar 2016, 11:20

I was looking around for some rearsets for the zx6r.

I saw on the Diamond site that they do folding levers. I've got some Lightech ones but they're getting on a bit and I've bashed the end of one of the levers. A replacement lever is £37.50 plus postage.

£60 for a pair of folding levers seems pretty good value to me, so I've ordered a set. I reckon I can get £60 for the second hand lighttech levers if I sell them on Motoforum or somewhere like that.

I'll let you know what the quality is like.

I have their rearsets and the quality is good.. almost all chinese copies are based on diamond!

Only thing with my rearsets is that the pegs have bent down over time, I asked the guy and he sent me some high tensile bolts but the issue has come back - he said he's never heard of that issue before but was very helpful

The service seems to be good. I told them the photos on their site for the levers were too small, so he's changed them over night.

I reckon I'll get some of their rearsets next month.

If I was starting over I wouldn't buy them again - purely down to lack of adjustability in terms of height. I have them on the highest and further back setting - best for me but I need them to be another inch higher for my short legs. They are only about half inch higher than standard. The lowest setting is the same as standard I think.

I'm happy with the OEM settings so I'm not too bothered about jacking them up a couple of inches.

They look very nice and a pretty good price too.

I've ordered some Chav Chinese ones with green highlights. Only because I needed some short levers, and these were about 20 quid. I'll get some nice ones later when I've got some spare cash.

Chavtastic!

If your looking at rearsets try SES racing I was really pleased with the ones on the Blade.

The levers look nothing like the ones on the site.

That said, I like them. Nice and simple but well made.

HAHA can't disagree with that, mine get a 10 on the chavtastic scale.

Annoyingly I found some much nicer short levers for 12 quid just after ordering them!
