I've been thinking about picking up a set of those instead of painting mine black again. $60 a side is less than what you'd pay for used stock parts.

I forgot to add that disclaimer to the end of my post.

They look the same as what maximus uses - sold in Australia as Kaneg, which have a $270 AU higher price tag!
They've actually got a decent reputation..

Does anyone know if these will fit the2000 12r? The compatibility chart says no, but they are sometimes wrong.

whats the diff jap bike chinese parts asain market

The difference is for me at least is this, Japan is an allie and China is not. Their government is expansionist and up to no good in the South China Sea. So I make a conscious effort to avoid anything made in China if at all possible. I have no desire to help fund their economy and their growing military war machine. If you do, that fine that's your choice. I choose not to..

Why not do what I done and simply cut off one of the mounting points on your frame and weld a new piece of 1/4" 6061 in place of it and tap it to fit a 10R rear set.. Once you do that the option are limitless.. Although I suggest you use 06 model up and not 04/05 model since those are different and the 2011 model up is different yet. So choose wisely for the best pick of parts

Seller said they were mis-titled as ZX12 and were actually for a ZX10 and they've since took the listing down. Meanwhile I sprung for some rearsets in Thailand more than double the price but a nice gold to match my levers, hopefully.

+1.

China is very good at mass producing copycat items of very low quality.

You want cheap, go Chinese. You want quality, look to Germany, U.S.A, England, Japan or Canada.

There is a reason why things are cheap, and it's not due to superior manufacturing standards.

I went with Yana Shiki rear set last year, and they are great. Little more money, but holding up well.
