Title: Levers..?
Post by: NeonOrb on October 16, 2019, 08:31:41 AM
Thinking of replacing factory bar levers for CNC Anodised versions.
Would still like long levers (I think) as opposed to shorties.
What recommendations / horror stories do the forum members have to offer.. :033:

My Chinese cheapies are still working great.  Only "negative" is the span adjuster colour has bleached in the last 7 years of use. Can't remember the make but I'll look this evening. They came in a nice little cloth bag with a branding on it.

Remember that, I believe 2015 on models have the fuel gauge working from clutch lever. Weird, I know.
My 16 model broke a clutch lever. Copy one made fuel gauge fail.

There is a micro-switch in the handlebar piece and a nob on the lever pressing the switch, without the nob you get a faulty fuel gauge. That "feature" exists in all newer Triumph bikes, including my bobber. Most aftermarket levers do have the nob however...

I am using these on the Bobber and the Tiger they work fine:https://www.v-trec.com/ (https://www.v-trec.com/)
