    Has anyone installed or seen these rearsets on any other CX besides the CX500E? Specifically, I'm looking for rearsets that would work on my Deluxe... I'm contemplating buying a set, but I don't know if there are any major changes in that area of the frame that would make them incompatible. If they are incompatible, does anyone know of any others that would work for the Deluxe? Thanks!

    Um, I'm not sure if I'm missing something or am just misunderstanding your question, but what do you mean about gear ratios? I guess at this point, I'm going to say that I don't think so, but I'm really not sure. If you check the link, you might be able to find the answer, though.

    The cx500e has a disc rear brake, so it's not gonna be bolt on.

    Here is a related thread. http://cx500forum.com/index.php?/top..._1#entry103557

    So at this point, I'm thinking I might fabricate my own set, since I've figured out that the mounting is different for the Euro... I've got a concept going on in my head, and if it's cost effective, I might do it rather soon. As for the linkages themselves, I'll probably be ordering parts from here.

    I make these for the CX500. $300.00 they work very well but you need two into one right side exit exhaust or make your own shifter.

    50gary, those look awesome! I've seen them in some pictures of other members bikes too, actually. I'd like to mount my pegs about 2 inches farther back and 1 inch up from where yours are, so I'll probably going to.need to fab my own, then make a series of levers that attach to the shifter, with something more simplified for the brake.
