Race Concept  Edition

SATO RACING Race Concept-edition Rear Sets for KTM RC8 / RC8R features a range of positions significantly higher and further back than our standard RC8 Rear Sets (and much higher than stock), better to help maximize lean angle during cornering. These billet aluminum Rear Sets are available in either Black, or Gold anodized finish with Black base plates and shift assembly.

Due to the high position, these Rear Sets are reverse (GP) shift pattern only.

An optional Shift Spindle Holder that works great with the Rear Sets to provide a sturdier, more sure-footed shift feel.

NOTE: The Shift Rod included in the kit is 130mm length, which is a good length if you plan on using the higher and/or further back mounting positions for the Step Plate on the Base Plate. If you plan on primarily using the lower / forward-most positions, a shorter Shift Rod such as 100mm-length may work better for you. (Available for purchase separately).

NOTE: Due to the super high positions of these 'Race Concept' Rear Sets, we recommend them for race bikes only.

For mixed use riding, our standard RC8 Rear Sets would be a better solution for most riders.

We also make RC8 Racing version Rear Sets which have a range of positions higher and back compared to our standard RC8 Rear Sets but about 20mm lower than these 'Race Concept' Rear Sets.
