CJ360 - what rearsets that wont need bent kicker?

Hey guys, first post here. First build on a 1977 CJ360.

Looking at rearsets, now I'm confused. Could anyone answer where and when these things are a factor:

-Some manufactures say kicker will need to be heated and bent, others say no mods needed.

-folded versus non folded pegs, Straight lever versus offset levers.

-some say theirs alleviate bump braking concerns while other mention nothing.

Is there a consensus on a few "go-to" products that you guys would recommend?

Bump braking is going to happen if the brake actuator is too far from the swingarm pivot. Whether they should fold depends a lot of lean angle. I've done both. If there's a go-to brand, it's probably Woodcraft, but nothing specific to 360s afaik.

I used Tarozzi rearsets on my cafe with custom brackets I had made up (XS650). You'll likely find there aren't many bolt-on kits or if there are, they're expensive.

What have you looked at so far? Bending the kicker isn't that big a deal, and if you can't do it at home a local shop could likely take care of it for you easily.

75 CL360. I got mine from dcc. I did end up ordering 1 foldable peg for the right side just because I kept hitting my ankle during kickstart. But the clearance was fine otherwise. I did get it like 5 years ago, so I don’t know if they’ve changed their rearset recipe since then.
