    Just be careful which ones you fit as I believe some levers don’t operate the clutch switch or something like that resulting in the bike not starting.

    Look for the ones with the brash bushes fitted. They seem to be the better of the :expressionless: one's.

    I know stuff Dave! :D Apparently, the fuel gauge can be affected by the action of the clutch lever as its the same circuit that the riding modes run through so it also impacts on the gauge. When you fill up, the gauge continues to read empty unless the new lever is actuating the sensor on the clutch.

    I bought mine off a seller from China on eBay. Cost about 15 quid delivered. Well made and built. 6 levels of span adjustment. There are loads on eBay to fit your bike, just don't fall into the trap of paying double for the same items. See the same as i have ranged from £12 to £70.

    Just as an update I bought vtech folding ones, put them on and after a few days use decided to go back to Originals as they are easier to use, feel more substantial and generally better in my opinion, therefore wasted me money again, hey ho, lesson learned.

    Did you buy the short or length adjustable leavers?
