Hi,Was thinking about going with aftermarket levers. Maybe a little shorter, maybe a little more "high-tech" looking. Any suggestions?
Hopefully you will have better luck then me. The first set came in with the wrong adapter they were clearly for another bike. Since i didn’t go with “prime” end up being a real pain to exchange it. So i went with evay(witch I’ve never had any problems) got the right one but i had to tighten the screws to the edge in oder don’t have too much loose since they have not been made with tight gap. It get to be ok!! not perfect So in my case was not so cheap but I’m still fine with itDecided to give these a try (Amazon Cheapies).
Sadly not available all black via Prime. May add pivot bushings - we'll see how they look "in person".
Over the last 3 months I have seen a marked change in the ad's. Most 790 lever ads were suggesting the seller thought 790ADV and 790D had the same levers. New ads say 790D only.Hopefully you will have better luck then me.
Do these levers work on 790 Duke? On the Website, it appears these are only for 200 / 390 / etc.Easy pull clutch
from a user experience, a shorter clutch simply is easier to handle as the original longer one. Once you start using the shorter clutch it is kinda strange and uncomfortable when you ride a bike with the original longer clutch again.
We have tested different clutches and developed our own. While testing we have noticed that some riders are using one finger some rather two. Therefore we ended up with two solutions.
Short version: 10 cm (For one finger use).
Long version: 12 cm ( The two centimetres simply give you more space for using the clutch with two fingers). Easy pull clutch: |RokOn| Rok Bagoros universal easy-pull CLUTCH LEVER
Very true. You get what you pay for. I worked at a motorcycle shop in Vancouver for 8yrs and in that time we had many riders bring in their "Chazzo" levers for install and several came back a few months later with broken clutch cables. Some a year or 2 after. Depends on how much you ride. The big manufacturers adjust to every change each year to a specific bike so each perch is exact. The knock off companies put a lever on a new model and if it works...sorta......they call it. The big companies also use much better quality material. I put 101,000kms on a Ducati 848 I used to own and in that time I went through 1pr of LighTech levers, 1pr of Pazzo levers and 5pr of "Chazzo" levers. I sold the LighTech still in great condition as bushings and push pins can be replaced on them. The Pazzo I sold for a change of bike colour. Both set had approx 25,000kms on them. Decided to try the "Chazzo" and got approx 10,000kms before each set wore out the pivot points.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:
Ditto - no problems at all. Tooling and materials in China have improved dramatically in many instances over the years, whether it relates to motorcycles or not. There are still "lemons" but that's not just restricted to AsiaI have been riding with eBay levers, rearsets, etc. for years. Never had any issues. I am probably doing something wrong...
I watched the STG video. I have also experienced that eBay lever tolerances are a bit wider (up or down). That can cause both problems Brian is discussing. Too tight or too loose. I think it boils down to the less than perfect manufacturers' QA. I had to ask for a replacement on levers, once. The vendor sent me another set, free of charge, without even bothering with a return. Worked for me.That would make 2 of us. I've had Chai-knees levers on the R3 for a decade and that is a heavy frikken clutch. Little or no wear.
