Replacement brake and clutch levers
« on: 25 April, 2019, 06:46:54 PM »
I am thinking of buying replacement levers for my 2011 CBF1000FAB I am wary of the super cheap offers from China. Can anyone recommend a manufacturer, or manufacturers to stay clear of!
Thanks in anticipation

I haven’t fitted any to my cbf yet, but I have used Pazzo levers on a few of my previous bikes, great quality, good range of adjustment, look and feel great, but are expensive compared to some. Quality costs you. Just a thought would you have faith in a cheap Chinese front brake lever when you have to grab a handful of brake to avoid that collision. Never used them so cannot really comment on them, it’s just a thought. Somebody else may have used them and be able to squash those fears.

That was my thinking also about the cheap Chinese levers. I have heard the build quality is a bit dodgy! Thanks for the info, I will check out the Pazzo levers.

I have just fitted a new set of levers this evening.  Bought them from Ebay. They were really easy to fit and look well. I suppose time will tell just how good they are. I fitted a set of cheap Chinese ones on my previous bike, a Tiger Sport and they were perfectly fine
