Levers review
« on: 13 September 2017, 11:07:43 AM »
Hi All,

Recently purchased new levers from china on eBay, was worried about the quality at first. But the quality is really good.
They cost £

eBay number: 282270785115

10 days to arrives.

personally i wouldnt as your talking about 2 very important safety parts
but that is mainly because there is not really any write ups about these
china can make some good stuff (iphones are chinese) but they happily make shit stuff aswell
will be interested to know how these turn out though
-im guessing you bought them for looks as a brake lever from busters/m+p is only 6 quid and arrives quickly (usually next day if ordered in morning)
riding this that and the other
modifing everything...

Decent review. :)  I recently ordered a different Chinese set and am waiting for them to be delivered.  8)

Note there is a video on youtube of a guy on his GSXR, whose Chinese brake lever fails and locks up the wheel, resulting in him sliding off onto the motorway.
Search " Motorcycle Crash Due To Chinese Brake Lever ".

The failure could very well have been due to a number of reasons (including improper fitting/even rider error). We will never really know.
But it would be worth checking the part he talks about, to ensure its in place correctly, just to be on the safe side.  ;)

  Not trying to be funny but the chances are that the pattern parts from M&P are quite probably Chinese too.

Quality is just as good as the more expensive items about, I can't fault them. They work and fit perfect on the bike aswell.

I'm not questioning that at all. Just saying that they are more than likely to be made in China. Certainly if I needed to replace the levers on my Fazer I would buy pattern ones not oem.

Mine arrived. Quite tricky fitting the nut on the Clutch side as there was limited space between the switchgear and cables, to hold it tight... All fitted now though.


Nice chunky feel. About same thickness as originals, no play that i can see. Cosmetically obviously look much better than originals.
