Rearset Q?

I'm looking at this rearset from Ebay and came across one. I aksed the seller if the rearset uses bearings or brass bushings for the movement. He came back and said that it uses resin bushings. Anybody heard about this type of bushings before? Does'nt sound even as better as the brass type bushings. I prefer the bearings but brass might do. Thanks. lol

There is absolutely nothing wrong with brass bushings, but i have no idea what the hell 'resin' bushings are. Could that be another term for plastic(epoxy or polycarbonate)?

I believe that a resin bushing is also commonly known as "phenolic".

Think mid-'70s CB750 swingarm bushing.

I'd opt for a bearing or brass, myself.

they look good, but they also LOOK heavy... just get a set of Sato's you can get the parts anywhere after you toss it down the road. Just check with cbr400 like the earlier post said. You won't be disappointed if you got with the Sato rearsets... err, uhh, you could always get a set of HINDLE rearsets [email protected]$
