XCA Short Levers - At a loss!
« on: March 25, 2021, 01:45:58 PM »
I know, I know, it's been asked a million times - But I cannot for the life of me find a definitive answer.

Could someone please share with me some short levers which will work with my '16 XCA, which also have the clutch switch tab so the cruise control won't pack up?

I have just been told that levers which fit the XCX will not fit the XCA, because apparently the switch gear is different and prevents you from fully pulling the lever.

All I want is some short levers!

Told by who? According to Fowlers' Parts, they're the same (and also the same as the XR, XRx, and XRt). https://www.fowlersparts.co.uk/parts/view/T2046080
Tiger 800 XRx, Bonneville T120 Black, SpeedTona, Speed Dent
Gone but not forgotten: Scrambler 900, Tiger 1050, Bonneville SE, Sprint ST 955i, Trophy 4, Sprint 900, Daytona 900, Tiger 900, Trident 900

A seller on eBay - name withheld as Im not out to cast aspersions on anyone!

Hi, yes the switch assembly on the bars is different so the levers catch this and can not pulled in fully.

Almost all offerings mention XC XCX XR XRT and all seem to omit the XCA... Im wondering if its because the auxiliary buttons offset the brake and clutch lever inboard a little causing the foul with short levers?

Do you mean the fog light and heated grips switches, also present on the XRt? Triumph's own lever kits fit both the XCa and XCx: https://www.fowlersparts.co.uk/parts/view/A9620038

Pleased to report that these will fit the 2015-2017 XCA, and they do have the tab to keep Cruise Control working.

I have seen evidence however from another user that they will foul the throttle side switch gear on the 2018- models, so be wary of this.
