    R&D Sponsons on an FZS

    Has anyone tried out the R&D sponsons on an FZS? How are they? I know they may not be as good as the MACC ones but I can get a great deal on a new set of these.

    I have used the R&D on the FZR and they work great.

    I have both the R&D's & Macc sponsons. They are about the same size, & I doubt you'll see a huge difference between the two for rec riding. The main difference is the Macc's have more adjustability & the little trim tabs on the backing plate, so there's more options to set them up for your riding style & conditions. If you have a good deal on a set of R&D's, I'd probably go with those. Just stay away from Riva's because they suck.

    I know the TBM and MACC sponsons are both going to be superior pieces but for my purposes (rec riding only) I can't justify spending $500+ on them.

    I totally agree, I would never spend $500 for some sponsons. I went with the R&D because I got them for $200.

    If you can get a deal, get the R&D's. They are a great sponson.
