I would be,just keep them simple.
3 or 4 positions should be fine.
what would prob be better is adaptor plate to allow us to use cbr sets.
that way we would have plenty of options

i really think this would be the way to go.
not as fancy as comple rearsets,but gives the superhawk owner lots of options.

most likely 6061.

The bad part about using a popular rearset is the way they are mounted.

My design uses the pivot of the swingarm as just that, a pivot. The entire assembly would rotate on it.

The footpeg itself would be adjustable forwards and backwards.

You get all the adjustability of an aftermarket rearset but it looks clean and simple.

I think that is a great idea.

I just want to make sure that they would be strong enough to hold up my fat *** (220+) when I am stomping down on the peg.

The first set i build will be for my own bike, and ill make damn sure they are strong enough.

My last set i built were on my Ducati when i crashed. It took the entire weight of the bike bouncing down the road and just bent slightly. I could have bent it back if i wanted.
