Happened to my clutch lever, replaced both levers with a pair of Evotech folding lever. IIRC, it wasn't a lot more expensive than a single lever from Triumph, and hopefully they will survive any future drop.

That one is for a 2014. The OP has a 2015. If he has CC it's the wrong one.

I thought it was only the clutch lever that was different. AFAIK the cruise control cut off on the brake works on the brake light switch being activated.

Looks same as on my '16 XRx which has CC.

I'm sure the OP will know if its same as his, or not.

I opted for the same ones, foldable (red) after similar static lay down

We are more similar than one might think😂

Thanks guys. I went for an ebay one for 13, came from M&P and looks identical to the Triumph one (prob made in the same factory in China...).

I had a cheap set of Chinese adjustable short levers on mine for a while.

For the price (I think about 30) they were fantastic quality, only sold them as I got wrist ache from the short Clutch lever, if i'd bought long ones they'd be still on.

I've been using the cheaper Chinese adjust-ables (length and folding) for over a year now and they are great. Only issue I noticed was that the brake lever now travels a bit more until it "grabs".  You'll like them.

While you are at it, you may want to look at a fold-able gear shifter. I caught my stock steel one in a off-road rut and it spun the bike - so after mangling it straight again so I could get home, I bought the Triumph fold-able on clearance as well.
