    Aftermarket Levers

    Just been trawling through Ebay looking for something to waste money on and found these:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Aprilia-RSV-MI...item45f7f2943b

    Has anyone bought these and if so whats the quality like?

    Cheers

    Dave

    I got some similar and the quality is superb but it was not the ones you are looking at

    Some poeple will say "dont trust cheap levers" but i got some and they are fine, the OE levers are cheap if you ask me, so all this get pazzo (rip off price) is just name snobbery if you ask me

    Hi Dave, I've just had a pair from mc' and they are bloody good at any price let alone 30. Took just over a week to get here, just have to stick them on the bike. I'm now looking at rear sets, if they're as good as the levers we'll do well.

    Cheers.

    Im scared of fitting aftermarket levers.

    I recall a thread on here where 2 people had fitted them and the front brake locked on whilst riding.
    I know its not common and other factors may have caused this but for me, I will stick with the stock levers

    I'm sure I saw RSV rear sets, maybe they will be relisted when new stock arrives. As for stock levers, care should be taken but nobody uses stock gear for racing and thats for a reason.

    Cheers.

    i think they are way too short and look worse than original aluminiums

    If you have never used shorties you dont know what you are missing

    Get a test ride on a bike with them and see what I mean

    Short levers give you way more feel and control

    What happens is the ball on the end catches on your last finger so your fingers dont slide

    With the original levers your hand moves along the curved section taking away some of the feel

    The benelli tnt we had was a really stiff pull for the clutch but after fitting shorties it was a doddle even for the wife

    Some people have had locking up problems with the chinese levers aswell as tolerance problems but many have got them and they have fitted great as my m8 did on his gsx1400, they are hard to tell the difference from pazzo's

    Personally I stick with titax as my wife rides both our biks and Im happier knowing the quality of levers ive used for years

    Ive got the shorties from Hing Kong on my 02 RSV Mille & they feel great, work perfectly & look the buysiness. Ive had these cheapy type on all my old Blades & my CB1300 prior to the Mille.
    When i got my old 600 Hornet it already had Pazzos fitted. I loved the feel of them, the pulling of the shorties was pretty much effortless & as said by Dynamo your fingers dont slide. Then when i got my first Blade i wanted shorties again but wasnt going to be fleeced for Pazzos so i went down the cheap & cheerful Hong Kong route & to be honest the only difference was the hole in my wallet!

    Fitted to a rsv. These ones are the titax gp ones with more of a curve





    Fitted to a tuono. These are the titax street ones and more flatter and comfier design
