The HSR3 is a solid, billet aluminum rearset made for Honda CBR1000RR models, and which makes up one-half of a total RR rips, the most complete product available for optimizing rider position and motorcycle ergonomics. Used alone or together with the Cycle Cat BR series muti-adjustable bar mounting system, the HRS3 provides a range of adjustment limited only by your motorcycle itself. Typically, the range of adjustment is far in excess of what anyone will ever use.
The HRS3 was designed in consultation with Larry Pegram, specifically with the objective of dialing-in his HRC-equipped CBR1000RR AMA Superbikes. Despite Larry's requirement for an extreme degree of peg elevation, Cycle Cat achived this upward range without compromising downward adjustment, resulting in a system having a remarkable range and potential, for any rider, and any style of riding.
As with all Cycle Cat rearset systems, the design and machining has been done thoroughly and with great attention to detail, so that the system bolts up easily, critical stock parts are reused, and nothing additional remains to be purchased, customized, or modified by the user.
With the HRS3, special attention has been paid to engineering the shift and brake linkages so that not only is adjustability easy to achieve, but the linkages themselves remain located and oriented exactly as stock. The shift side includes a special linkage which permits easy, one-minute conversion between conventional and GP shifting. On the brake side, the stock master cylinder fits right in, and the total system can be installed and made ready to ride in minutes.
Light, strong, and the most adjustable system you can buy for your CBR1000RR, the HRS3 not only delivers the ability to totally dial in the fit of your ride, but looks killer good in the process!
HRS3 Range of Adjustment
To the left is a graphic representation of the range of adjustment possible with the HRS3 compared to stock settings. The background image is the stock rearset. The white circle high-lights the stock position of the footpeg.
Each colored dot represents a possible position of the HRS3 footpeg. There are 108 possible locations for the footpeg, all quickly and easily achieved.
While every footpeg position indicated can be used, and there is clearance for positioning of the peg in every case, at the extremes, the position-ing can be less practical due to obstructions to the foot or adjustment of the levers. Thus, the dots are color-coded to represent the practicality of use of the various footpeg positions.
The green dots are easily used peg positions. The yellow should be useable but may not be, in all cases, for all riders. The red dots (if any) are likely to be difficult, though not impossible, to employ.
HRS3 Design Intent
As indicated, the footpeg can be raised a maximum of 2.93", lowered a maximum of 2.37", moved backward a maximum of 1.34", or forward a maximum of 1.58", from the stock footpeg position.
The HRS3 system is designed to fine-tune the footpeg and control positions for optimal handling and performance on an aggressive, competition sport bike. As such, the geometry of the system provides a 55:45 up:down adjustment ratio, weighting the system slightly toward more aggressive, competitive positionings, while simultaneously providing substantial adjustment toward open, relaxed, less aggressive settings. In determining the amount of downward adjustment to provide, designers also considered minimal reduction of lean angle to be an important objective, as well as avoidance of interference with fairings, and maintenance of proper linkage geometries.
Ultimately, it was our objective with the HRS3 to create a versatile means for dialing-in the fit of the foot position and controls, to accommodate any style of riding desired, and to take advantage of every inch of adjustment practical. The HRS3 meets and exceeds our objective, and, we believe, succeeds in providing virtually any rider with an incomparable, easily-achieved, personalized riding position, for any kind of ride.
