Levers: Brake & Clutch ?

I was wondering if anyone has changed their stock levers if so to which one and why. Also Shorty levers or long??

Ive only used shorty levers on my 2008 Daytona 675 and have gotten very used to them and only using my one or tow fingers on the levers.
Now going in to the stock levers on the bobber its hard to get used to.

I swapped mine out for the TEC adjustable levers. Great price and I'm very happy with the quality.

Each one matters.

Swapped mine for Rizoma adjustable levers. A little pricey but like the look, design and function!

The TEC lovers offer excellent value for money and work well.

Now I am using the Wunderkind Stripe levers. Pricey, but look and feel fantastic. They are full length (not shorty), but fit my small hands great as they are span-adjustable.

Here are some pics from a post I made a while ago:

I have not, but if you search the forum there are many threads on levers.

For the brake lever, I think most have left them long due to the needed extra grabbing power to stop the bike better (emergencies or both) as the front breaks on the Bobber are a bit weak.

Couldn’t find a good pic of the bobber we installed on but can see on a Thruxton R.

Levers are levers, $30 ones and $300 will functionally do the same thing. Is the adjuster smoother and anodizing better on the more expensive one? Absolutely. $250 better? Only you can decide 🙂 Suprisingly we sell the rizoma and wunderkind levers frequently, because they just look amazing.

$32 “Ride It” levers, ordered off Amazon. My buddy used some on his bike, and after comparing those to the WAY more expensive ones, I went this route. Very happy. Excellent fit, finish, and overall quality. I don’t generally go for less expensive, but in this case, there was no more value for the cost of higher priced levers.
