Was thinking about going with aftermarket levers. Maybe a little shorter, maybe a little more "high-tech" looking. Any suggestions?
I had a standard lever breaking on a stupid fall from standing still that left me with no usable front brake.I’m trying to wait for ASV to make a set but maybe a pair of china levers won’t hurt for that price.

Problem with those levers could have been the nipple housing depth. Had the same thing with my KLX dirt bike. Clutch cable broke after a few months. Bought new cable, found that when fitting the cable run was not central and was slightly rubbing on the yoke. Fixed by grinding a fraction off the nipple to ensure the nipple sat well down in the cavity and the cable was central.A buddy bought MSV Chinese levers from AliExpress 3 months ago and it ate his clutch cable in under 2 months of riding (brand new Yamaha MT-10) and then there's this from Brian Van at STG:
I'm not PLANNING to really either - but I'd like to have my options clear in case I have to suddenly! replace them.:crying:Ye I was debating the shorties for a long time. I still haven't made up my mind, but I am not really looking to swap the levers out at this point.
