Mechanically Retarded - Fitting Sato Rearsets 2010 R1

I must be very special as I can't work out for the life of me what the pivot for the shifter lever screws on to. See the pic for the bit I mean... Where the heck does this screw onto the bike?!?

Cheers.

I didn't install these but I can ask my friend in the morning how they fit on there. This is where it goes though...

Anytime. Wrenching in the dark is never a good idea

How dare you go against darkness, black or otherwise. Next you'll be riding a yellow bike.

With all the photons black bikes absorb they are actually heavier AND slower than white bikes.

Right, got the sprocket cover off after finding that little bastard of a third bolt holding it on... By the looks of your pics, it attaches to the bit where the swing arm is bolted onto the frame, but I haven't got a hex driver big enough to take it off.

Do you know if that big hex head is a bolt or a nut? If it's a bolt, then I think I'm missing a part, if it's a nut then I can see that it would work.

Hmmm. Should have left this to the pros I think

Can you take some pics of your bike with the stock rear set on, or removed to compair to the ones sab posted? I don't have an 09, but this should be straight forwad.

Which big hex head You aren't talking about the swingarm pivot are you? Because what other big hex head is there?

PJ, the bolt that the pivot point of the shiftter is mounted to.....is that a bolt head or a nut on the side of the shifter?

I know on my 08, it was bolted up just like that, but the bolt head was on the shifter side, so I had to slide the whole bolt out and put it in from the other side so the nut side was on the shift side.

When I did this the motor shifted and I had to loosen all the other motor bolts (thanks Meister) to get it back into position. Not a big deal but confusing if you don't know what oyu are supposed to do.

Just to clarify, if this bolt revers thing is the case, your pivot of the shifter will thread onto this reveresed bolt and replace the nut.

You are not doing anything with the swinger pivot.

Aaaahhh, I see what you guys are talking about now. On my phone (as always ) and without clicking on the pic and making it larger, it looked like the shift rod

Ok, it all makes sense now. Thanks guys. So yeah, it does screw onto the swingarm pivot bolt, and yep, the nut it on the other side (stupid me didn't even think to look there).

I think I'll get the shop to do it - I can see myself ending up with detached swingarm

You sure about that? Post a pic of where you're talking about specifically. Because you shouldn't have to touch that at all

That's not the swingarm pivot bolt though. That bolt is the large one just above it and the the right in that pic

The shifter bolts to the kick stand bracket that set up you have sure don't look like my rizomas. You sure its for an 09-12 model?
