So they fit ok in the end, but I have to admit that I really dislike the little round stopper for the rear brake.

Also, with the Sato's does anyone else find that upshifts with the QS are not as smooth as they were with the stock rearsets.
Full throttle upshifts for me now are pretty jerky, and require more force at the pedal than before.

I found that you need to space the frame plate out just a bit the plastic spacers that come with them are not thick enough and the Rod for the QS rubs on the frame. I put an extra washer behind mine and that fixed the harsh shifting. Because if you did it right you didn't change anything but the rear sets. No adjustments were made to the QS rod.

Thanks.
I'll have another look at it to make sure everything is lined up ok.
I have the rearsets in the 10mm 'up' position from normal, with the footpegs themselves in their very bottom hole, and the shifter side pedal in the 2nd hole from the very end of the shifter lever.
Also using normal shift pattern.

Couldn't see anything rubbing when they were installed, and when use the clutch the shifts don't seem to be stiff.

It feels like the Satos make the shift distance at the pedal a little shorter than stock, so maybe the shifts are happening too fast for the QS system?
