The Norton Racing 2nd Generation Adjustable Rearset Riser Kit allows you to use the OEM rearsets for the Yamaha R3 and raise them up and move them back for a more aggressive riding position. These riser plates are designed by us for aggressive riding and racing and have a larger change from the OEM position than every other riser option on the market.

These 2nd Generation riser plates are the result of extensive testing and racing as well as feedback from customers who have purchased and used our 1st Generation riser plates. These 2nd Generation risers have four different options for foot peg position. The two lower positions provide a rise of 60mm (2.36″) and are set back 50mm (1.97″) or 65mm (2.56″) from the stock position. These two positions are optimized for street bikes and race bikes that have the stock seat height and will provide the rider with a more aggressive riding position, proper foot position, as well as adequate ground clearance for racing. The two higher positions provide a rise of 85mm (3.35″) and are set back 65mm (2.56″) or 80mm (3.15″) from the stock position. These two higher positions are optimized for race bikes that are using the taller Hotbodies Race Seat/Tank Cover or a different seat that is taller than the OEM seat.
These risers are CNC machined from extremely strong and light weight aerospace grade 6061-T6 aluminum and anodized black. They are heavy duty and designed to stand up to the rigors of racing and crashing as well as possible. They are laser engraved with the new NortonFab Motorsports logo and include all stainless steel mounting hardware. This kit includes a longer stainless steel shift rod that will allow you to use standard shift pattern or reversed (GP) shift pattern.
The large change in rearset position achieved with this kit will require a few modifications on the bike during installation:
You will need to relocate or remove the rear brake fluid reservoir. This kit includes a relocation bracket for the rear brake reservoir.
If you would like to use one of the two higher positions, you may need to flip over the banjo bolt fitting on the rear brake line where it attaches to the rear brake master cylinder to provide enough length in the brake line. Once you flip over the brake line fitting (so it angles down instead of up), the brake line fits very well. Our custom rear superbike brake line will also work with this kit. If you have a different aftermarket stainless steel rear brake line, it may or may not work with this kit depending on length and fitting orientation. If you flip over the brake line fitting, it is important that you bleed the rear brake line before riding the bike.
Finally, if you choose one of the two higher positions, you will have to remove or relocate the rear brake light switch. These positions are generally only for racing with a taller race seat, so this does not affect most street riders. The highest, rearmost position requires removal or modification of the rear passenger pegs. You can replace the exhaust mount on the right side passenger peg with our exhaust hanger bracket which does not interfere with this kit. We offer a banjo bolt pressure switch as an additional option to replace the rear brake light if you need to retain rear brake light function.
*Many aftermarket rearsets on the market for the R3 do have a large enough change from the OEM position to provide adequate ground clearance for racing and some riders are even use this kit together with their aftermarket rearsets to achieve a larger adjustment from the stock position.
