Economical rearset options?

I've checked out the previous threads here on this topic, but it's a little unclear because all the links and images from the old threads are missing, and so I wanted to confer with the collective brain trust. I'm potentially interested in this change to:

1) whittle off a little more weight,
2) get rid of the big rubbery pegs -- BUT, stay with a foldable peg to prevent the need to worry about the bike scraping on a fixed peg and pivoting on that point (or the peg snapping off),
3) increase lean clearance,
4) and swap the silver (brackets) for black bits

So I understand that 600RR foot pegs are a direct swap, but what about the brackets, i.e. this bit o' kit (billed as for an 03-04 600rr)?



And there's another poster in a past thread here who says 900rr rearsets fit? Can anyone confirm?

I realize after studying the picture that the rear bracket doesn't include any attachment for the muffler, so those are out. And I'm interested in retaining the passenger pegs, so a lot of the aftermarket exhaust hangers are precluded.

I'm basically looking for direct replacement options that are the stock bits on another bike, I guess, because the whole aftermarket rearset kits are a) expensive, and b) seem to solely offer fixed pegs.

If rearsets are cost prohibitive I'll just swap out the pegs.

Yep, that is a solid option that satisfies 2) and 3). Does anyone have these and can comment on how they effect clearance with a) passenger’s feet and b) the exhaust? I can touch the heel of my foot on the exhaust when the ball of my foot is on the peg, wondering if this would be better/worse.

I would doubt highly that those 600RR brackets would fit the 300R.
I know the aftermarket 300R rear sets dont have foldable foot pegs but I believe this to be the best option as at least you know they will fit.
These ones in black for under $150 look good:

I had Chinese rearsets on my CBR and had no issues with them. A much better foot position I found, esp with low bars.

had rs plates on cbr250r [stolen] and replacement cbr300r, both with lv carbon slip-on exhausts, lowest of two settings which allowed better general road clearances, also lifting heel further away from exhaust.. stock passenger peg bracket to secure lv slip-on takes muffler well up and away from road surface, also in nice and tidy..
i used lowest of two options up and back for general road riding, which didnt effect pillion feet..
