    New Levers

    So I bought some levers a while back (I know... they are the cheapie ones) and they have sat there. I had also bought some for my sv650 and had installed them right away. After 2 months of using those I finally felt good adding them to my Z. Put them on today and did a ride with no issues. I like the look and really loved the price. Also, I didn't break my little safety switch when changing them. I did have to tighten some of the little screws on the levers to make them nice and tight, but other than that it is a great fit.

    Really good-looking.  :028:
    I think I will install the foldable model, to (hopefully) avoid the levers to break in case of dropping the bike.
    Anyway, what's the real difference between "cheap" and "expensive" levers? Which quality aspect do you think they are missing?

    The main issue is the anodizing is thin and turns colors fast.
    Also the seldom reported hole tolerance for the brake is not consistent.

    With that said I have run them with the only issue being poor anodizing.

    This is from a vendor, so take it with a grain of salt; however, thereís enough videos like this to make me return the $35 set I just got from Amazon.

    Thereís plenty of offerings in the sub $150 range from CRG, AVS, Vortex, Womet-Tech, etc.  I just picked up a set of foldable and extendable Hotbodies for $130.

    I guess, when I really thought about it, not everything has to be from AliExpress- this is one of those things.

    Yep seen that awhile back and itís why I replaced my Amazon levers out even though I never had an issue it just scared me thinking about what if brake did lock up.  :762:
