No not the stock, If I read right Kilyung has the Triumph short levers Stock # A9620038 that I'd like to have.

Just bought and installed a pair of Ebay shorty levers after reading recommendations on here, took it for a ride to work this morning and made a world of difference- at least for me anyway! £15 as opposed to £150 from Triumph, who can complain 😎

Do you have cruise control on your bike and/or do your new levers have the switch actuator? This is the only thing stopping me from giving some of the ebay ones a whirl.

As I stated before, I have cc and if you order the ones with the longer "nub" they work well and the quality and finish is very good.

as I already said in this thread https://www.triumphbobberforum.com/f...-properly.html not only the brake levers have to fit it's also the clutch lever. The cheap chinese one I fitted did not press the switch in on the clutch handlebar bit so the fuel gauge was not working correctly. The German supplier told my by e-mail today that he'll send a different adapter, maybe this helps.
Apart from that much more confidence while braking the OEM Triumph levers are too thick and not near enough to the handlebar and I do not have small hands

No issues at all with the TEC levers, and they're very affordable.

Again, the *correct* answer is NO, these levers ordered from "Exotic Motorsport" on eBay WILL NOT WORK. The picture you have posted is of the BRAKE lever, not the CLUTCH lever

Bobbers with a clutch/start cancel and/or cruise control actuator switch will need levers with a nub which will actuate the switch. Otherwise, they will not work.
