have been in correspondence with Nobunaka the last week and a but since installing a set on my bike. I reported to them the two main issues with their product; that being the gear shift connecting rod being too long, and the right peg not spaced out equally compared to the left.
They were grateful for the feedback as no one has mentioned the issues to them prior and advised they will be changing future productions of these sets. As thankyou are sending out a free set of spare pegs

Cases in point why customer feedback is important. Like how back in June my MotoDynamics taillight stop working and found there circuitry was shy on solder. Advised the company they need to revise there manufacturing, and they repaired my unit free of charge even though it was 6mths past the warranty period.

Pics as requested @iliodi
Went with their default color combination of black-red as thought it went quite nicely with my bike's color scheme:






They feel a lot more comfortable than the stock ones after having fitted the aftermarket clip-ons, not so crunched up now. As expected can definitely lean more; even if at the same angle, it feels like you're leant over more. I especially like not having that feeling of apprehension on lean that I'm going to be scrapping pegs. Can attack the corners with more confidence knowing you've got more room to lean than one has balls to go!

It's ignorant question time:

Thanks in advance!

what it is:
a quick shifter, it allows you to shift up without using the clutch under full acceleration (you can have the accelerator wide open)
what it does:
when you press on the shift pedal, it cuts the engine off for a small moment matching the revs better for the next gear and that allows for the gears to be changed, basically the same thing as you would do when you don't use the clutch and just close the throttle for a bit ... except you don't have to close the throttle, this will allow to shift faster => faster acceleration

LOL! yeah pretty much, was chatting with my mate the other day about the mods and the crashes I've had on it and he asked if there's any part of the bike that from new I haven't modified, swapped or removed from the bike in any way... had me thinking for a while. Ummm, the inner rear mud guard, the chassis, triple clamps, gearbox, *scratches head*, the heatshield panel and the little rear ducktale panel, is about it.

And as Yamato explained, that Quickshifter is wicked! I love it, even just the sound is a symphony to the ears

Awesome thanks for the explanation @yamato!

@tothezenith, if you ever catch a video of it in action, I'd love to hear it too!

I've noticed that Nobunaka sells the "spare parts kit" at a discount when purchasing the rearset ... build quality/failure a concern, or is it more for those who take it racing with increased risk of hitting the ground?
