Sato rearsets install help

G'day guys,

I've just picked up a pair of used Sato rearsets from gumtree that seem to be in very nice condition. They have arrived without any fitting instructions and lots of little bits and pieces. Could anyone post some detailed pics of the rear brake side - particularly how the master cylinder attaches to the brake pedal? If anyone had a copy of the fitting instructions I would love to see those.

I have tried to search but can't find enough detail - any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers Troy

Install instructions.
Don't worry about the first image. It's just the way the site displays the file.
I test downloaded it and it views just fine.

Thanks for the response subsailor. My rearsets seem to have a different set up for attaching the brake pedal to the master cylinder 'actuator' ? (not sure what it's called). Anyway, I'll have a play around and see what I come up with - hope I've got the right parts.

I believe sato changed their linkage for the brake master at some point. Oh, and don't bother with the brake light banjo unless you need it for inspection or something. They are pretty much worthless and don't really come on without a lot of pressure.

I think mine is the newer style:






I'm always right.

Your linkage is the same as mine, and the same as in the diagram.
I noticed you're not using the pipe stay for your mid-pipe.

Thanks bmiller that is exactly the shot I needed. I don't know if I've been given the right part. I'll try to post up some pics later to get some opinions. The parts I was given to attach to the bottom end of the master cylinder is just like the female rod end (sounds dirty) for the shift rod (getting these terms from the diagram posted by subsailor).

Anyway it all fits up fine only the bake pedal sits way too high. It's like i need to shorten the threaded part (part I called the actuator) of the master cylinder. If this can be done and some one can show me how to do it the job will be sorted. In the mean time I've worked out a fix using a combo of original and supplied parts which is fine - but I'd like it to be right.

Again any help appreciated and I'll try to get those pics up as I'm sure my explanation is naff.

Hey Sub can you post a few shots of the pipe stays. I finally got a set and need to install them (waiting on the rubber parts).

Here's a pic of what I've set up at the moment. As you can see the linkage is a combo of the parts supplied by the previous owner and one of the original parts from the standard set up. The part sitting on the swing arm threads onto the threaded part at the bottom of the master cylinder and fits nicely with the other parts shown in the pic. However even when threaded as far up as it will go the brake pedal is too high. Any ideas?

Refer to the diagram.

The pipe stay fits between the frame and the lower rearset base plate mount.
A matching spacer fits between the base plate and the upper mount.

The smaller hole in the pipe stay uses the 6mm bolt to secure to a small threaded hole at the lower-rearmost part of the base plate.

Then mounting rubber is moved from the OEM rearset over to the Sato pipe stay and the pipes secured to it.
