Replacement Levers Wanted
« on: May 31, 2020, 07:37:21 PM »
Dropped my bike today and broke the clutch lever, not sure why the hand guards didn't protect it but I suppose that's why they are called hand guards and not lever guards!

Anyone got one lying around unwanted?

# Updated: got rear ended by another bike and and snapped off the brake lever now!

Has anyone got a pair of std Levers or quality aftermarket (not Chinese copies) they can sell me?

If no one has any levers lying about to sell can anyone recommend a pair of decent aftermarket one's?

I have just ordered a Tiger 800 2018 replacement clutch lever blade from here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/mandpdirect

About 16

I bought one a few years ago and it was indistinguishable from the original so here's hoping.

Regards

Make sure that you get ones specifically designed for a post 2015 Tiger otherwise you will find that your next post will be "why does my fuel gauge and cruise control not work?".
The existing ones are most likely only broken at the fracture point just inside the ball so are still perfectly workable and it is always good to put them under the seat for use in an emergency later on.

Thanks K1W1

I like the look of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AS3-ADJUSTABLE-BRAKE-CLUTCH-LEVERS-SHORT-TRIUMPH-TIGER-800-11-18-1050-07-16/143456800450?redirect=mobile but they advertise them as for Tigers from 2011 which wouldn't have cruise control. Should I avoid them do you think?

Send them a question through eBay asking for confirmation that they are compatible with 2015 or new Tigers equipped with cruise control and that the cruise control will work. The newer design levers will fit the old bike so given that it is 5 years on you would expect that the levers will work because if they didn't the company would know about it.

I have a standard clutch but its not adjustable. You can have it free if it helps you out. From a 2012 Roadie.

go for aftermarket levers, I have foldable ones, dropped the bike couple of years ago, levers just folded up and did not break. Much better adjustment also. The ones I have are sold under the "V-Trec" brand
