Which folding levers do I need to get for the XCA 17'
« on: June 29, 2017, 02:14:20 PM »
Recently snapped the end off my OEM clutch lever, so needs replacing. Noticed there are a few folding options on the market, which seem useful for off roading and dropping the bike. I have seen something about there needing to be a specific lever to disengage the cruise control.

Any suggestions on lever options?

Thanks

Tony

Dont know about a folding one but i snapped the brake lever on my xrt and replaced it with a bog standard after market one . No issues and everything works as it should regards the cruise control

What year is your XRT? I had read somewhere it's like 14/15 MY onwards that has an issue.

AIUI - That would be because it is the 'clutch' lever that operates the additional microswitch related to the cruise control. The lever has an additional lump that operates this switch and if pre-15 model (cable throttle, not fly-by-wire) levers are fitted then this piece is not present on the clutch lever and therefore causes issues.
