I believe Ken has experimented with Don's rearsets and the folding lever with no success.

I use Don's rearsets with a MKIII lever and have no issues.

Many Thanks Acadian,
So without checking will the Mk 3 lever fit Pre Mk3 kick start shaft?
Does the Madass kit remove the need to use the original Z plates, or are these something you have had made up as you have high mounted exhausts??

The kick start lever is backwards compatible AFAIK. My Z plates are custom, Don's rear sets still require a mounting point relative to the stock footrest hanger.

I use my rearsets which are Dunstall replicas. I'm certain they were originally used with the standard
kickstart lever. I have a set on one of my bikes with the standard kickstart lever.

Hi Madass!

I just purchased a ‘75 MKIII Commando, and would like to purchase rear sets for it. Would you happen to have any for sale?

Thanks for the help!

I just got my Hydes set up on my MKIII and found I could get the RGM folding kick start lever to clear the Hyde foot peg. Seems just perfect.

Great pics, thanks guys..!

Will these require any drilling into the z-plates? Also, do either of you have these mounted on an Interstate? My hope is that the Hyde setup is not a full “rearset” per se but perhaps a good compromise. They appear to me to be not as far back as other rearset options, no?

straight Bolt-on, works great on a Interstate with low Euro bars (didn't like the setup as much on a roadster), I did some custom bushes/spacers, on the outer primary cover OEM shifter shaft and Hyde shifter pivot to remove some slop. I also shortened the front Hyde shifter leg to get less overall movement. All those things can be overlooked, see what you like first.

Agreed - bolts right on. I found the Hyde shifter leg was a poor fit on the right foot peg (it pivots on this). I plan on turning a bushing for this over the winter to tighten it up as it makes for a sloppy shift. The MKIII shift shaft needs all the help it can get.
