I am going to try to make my own rear sets. Is there any thing I should know? Or does any one have any tips or tricks?

if your bike is kickstart, make sure your kickstarter clears your rear sets. you may have to modify it (i am on my RD400 project)

get yourself a set of FZR rearsets and bolt them right thru the passenger peg holes. No mount fab needed!

Any thru-bolt shifter and brake should work, some model GSXR pegs should work too.

don't use clevis ends and don't make your linkage undersized and weak

Is the cb500t frame the same as the cb500f in that regards? Will the FZR rearsets fit up with no fab to an F?

if the passenger pegs mount in approximately the same location, and use the same part number (probably) then they should bolt right in.

See the pics in my thread in my sig and compare to your frame.
