ebay levers

Post  moto1 on Mon 11 Jul 2011, 2:44 pm

Hi everyone I need to replace my brake lever as it was bent recently due to a little mishap I had on the weekend all due to my silliness and a over enthusiastic throttle ! What a Face - my question is has anyone ever had any issues with Pazzo knock off Levers from ebay ? a brake lever from Suzuki is a little pricey at $100.

I have had them on for ages and not a single issue. They haven't corroded or degraded in any way.

If you set the clutch side to 1 it won't engage the clutch switch and the bike wont start, no other issues.

sounds like a cheap anti-theft device

I paid $30 to replace the clutch lever with a genuine article.

I've got a gold pair and they have faded to a very pale yellow quite quickly...may not happen with the other colours and for the price I don't care, they work fine and have a really nice feel to them.

I have a pair of 'knock off' levers, $48 delivered. They are silver and the shorter two finger type. I've had them for about ten months and fully endorse them. They are machined from one piece aluminium. Go China!

Only problem, as Saikhan pointed out that setting one on the clutch side won't engage the start switch, but I like Baz's idea for an anti theft device.

My 18 year old son (who rides dirt bikes) wouldn't let up on me to take it for a run one day when we were out. I flicked the clutch side to the first position without him seeing and said "ok if you can start it you can ride it". I rode home. Smile

my fleebay levers have arrived now, any tricks or suggestions to installing them.
I noticed that there seems to be only one pivot screw/bolt on each side that needs to be removed is this correct guys ?

Yep. A nut underneath. Pop that off first, then back out the bolt. Don't overtighten them or they will bind. Clear out any crud and a light smear of grease is good.

The clutch side has a brass cylinder with a hole that you will need to swap across to the new lever. When you put that lever in, the hole in the cylinder lines up with the pushrod for the clutch master cylinder. A smear of grease holds it in place.

The brake side is even easier.

Just make sure you tighten the bolt to a little more than finger tight so nothing binds. The nuts should be self locking, but sometimes they are not so I use a drop of blue loctite.

Thanks for the guide kewwig helped me out heaps all good now, these new levers feel feel great much better than the standard ones. Correct position 1 does not activate the starter but I don't need that setting anyway.

I got some delivered yesterday and fitted them today. All good except the bike wont start on positions 1,2 and 3 which is a bummer cause position 4 and up is unsuitable for my hand. Also on positions 1 and 2 the clutch is slightly engaged, Is there any adjustment I can make to the clutch assy to remedy this issue?

Cheers,
Mat
