i want/need new rear sets for my bike, but cant decide which one i wanna go with.

ive heard great things about both brands so pretty much it comes down to looks.

but i like both... i THINK i might be leaning towards Arata's tho in the looks department.

what do you guys think overall about both of them?


Arata...






Sato...

Both look great. But, the nice thing about the Arata is that they have a bracket for the brake light switch and do not require a new brake line if I recall. The Sato do not have the brake light bracket. I would go for the Arata unless you do more track than street riding.

I love my arata and would say if you are doing trackdays, get the SATO's p[arts are far easier to get if you do happen to have a mishap...

For the street the ARATA were just loctite all the bolts mount and go...I love them on my ZX6R...But my RC51 has Sato's and they are great as well....i would say whichever one you can get for cheaper..

Satos i can get for $450 shipped from a guy i know..
The Arata i got from advanced kawasaki on some special they had for $390

either way your a winner

I won't use Sato any more, too many problems. The peg bolts are so soft they bend under hard peg weighting ( I weigh 150 pounds), parts are expensive, and Vortex of OSF are better values.
