Adjustable Levers

Post by radare » Fri Feb 24, 2017 12:14 pm

Do these constitute accessories? I would say, yes!

Well, anyhow, I bought a set of the normal/long length adjustable levers from a Chinese seller on eBay. They came a while back and I installed them on the scrambler. I had some time to ride with them last week and I must say, I really like them. They fit well and feel really high quality. I paid roughly $20 for them and they took about two-weeks to get here from Hong Kong.

I'll add more information as I use them a while. If you have a pair, post 'em up and tell me what you think of them and how they're holding up.

Those look identical to the ones that I got form the2wheels.com years ago. They are sold under a bunch of different brand names, and they have a bunch of different variations. $20 is a good price though, they went up for a while.

Mine have held up ok. They were black but faded to brown, so I painted them and the paint rubbed off where I grip them. The adjuster cam doesn't hold real well, so they sometimes switch positions on their own, but otherwise they work great.

Wish they offered them in silver/silver combination. Then we wouldn't have to worry about fading. :ponder:

Well, maybe you'll have my luck. On mine, the handles have faded badly, but the perches still look like new. I don't know what they did different, but there's a very noticeable difference.

I purchased a pair of these adjustable levers but it doesn't fit on my knock off master cylinder reservoir lever from eBay located in the middle.
