Saw a blurb in a cycle mag about these folks. They have some pretty nice stuff:

SATO RACING | HONDA


  • best approach to swingarm spools that I've seen
  • Oil filler cap pre-drilled for wires (some clubs require safety wires on oil plug, cap, and filter if you're doing track days)
  • Neat bracket that mounts under (or in place of) the passenger pegs and gives you a tie-down.
  • Nice pair of rear-sets.
  • Sliders (I like the Yoshi ones better)
It's really interesting to see all of the vendors competing to bring out equipment for this bike.

the yoshi ones looks cleaner and more integrated with the bike IMO.

Ok this might sound like a dumb question but what is the difference between these two

SATO RACING | Honda CBR250 ('11) Swingarm Spools

They look identical except for the way they mount and the name.
The reason I (personally) don't like the Yoshis is because it appears the weight of the bike is supported on the chain tensioning bolts. One of the prime reasons to have a track stand is so the rear wheel can be removed. Once the axle is out, what will keep the Yoshi spools in place? Even a lip won't help, since the adjuster will be hanging loose at that point. In addition, I can see where it would be a pain to adjust the chain with the weight of the bike resting on the tensioners.

Now, if the Yoshi spools extended 1/2" or more into the swingarm and were screw-retained, it would be a slam-dunk

By clamping on the swingarm, the Sato spools don't have this problem. I do agree that they don't look as "clean" as the Yoshi spools, but I don't see the problems with them that the Yoshi spools have.

Note that I haven't bought either one yet. My stand has both spool and swingarm ends, and right now I'm just jacking on the swingarm.

i like those and the yosh frame sliders i just wish they weren't so pricey. i paid like $55 for the shoguns on my 600 and they've definitely held up. anyone know if shogun's got anything for our bikes yet?
