I have had my Z for just over a week and I have dropped her 3 times now, twice in gravel/sand.

Fortunately nothing has broken yet nor does she have any scratches.

Point of this post is if anyone has purchased rear sets yet, does anyone have a factory rear brake lever they would be willing to part with? My last fall bent my rear brake lever. I could fix it but would rather avoid the hassle. Feel free to PM me if you do.

Steady Garage is selling a set of rear sets with new shifter and rear brake lever, but its 400 bucks... ouch. :surprise:

I need to replace my rearsets... I need them raised up and I keep missing shift because I am used to GP shift. I wouldn't know what to price them at though... they have some scrapes from dragging around corners but that's it.

I've pushed my stock tires to the absolute limit dozens of times. Drifting and all. They do lack a little corner traction but I can get really far over, and i always feel in control.Sorry you're having bad luck mate. Tire pressure maybe?

I dropped my first 125 Scooter on sparse road sand turning right onto a paved road (Cold Weather). I dropped my fourth scooter on a gravel road with a misplaced stop sign. I am a fan of larger tires, however I find the Z to be an extremely better ride than any of the six or seven scooters I've had. Remember, These Bike tires are a softer durometer for better traction and wear out sooner. Now I'm just really, really careful reading the road ahead.
