    Hi All,

    Just wanted to give you the lowdown on the CRG levers I just fitted. I went for stubbies rather than folding in the end because I found I was riding with just one/two fingers on the levers. Had a nice blast down the road to West Yorkshire Triumph today to try on the latest Alpinstars/Triumph leathers. (got the AS2 boots, need to think about the rest!) Clutch and brake levers both work really well and the Roll-a-click adjustors are easy to fiddle with while on the move. If anything I think I could manage with even shorther ones but, I'll prob bleed the brake to try and shorten the travel a bit more. They are a good shape for two fingers and seem to free up the rest of the grip well.

    p.s. fitting took about 5 mins, direct replacement for OEM levers

    In the end they look the dogs and help me get through the back gate so everything else is a bonus :p

    Jim :geek:

    Very Nice Jim, can I ask where you got them and how much?

    Is it a straight Bolt out, slide out, slide new in and bolt back in type Job?

    I got them from intobikes at 63.99 each + 4.99 P&P. they took ages to arrive (1.5-2months) but I hear thats more to do with CRG supply issues. I could have got them cheaper through Faster by Design but I was typically impatient and didn't wait for him to get back to me (£60 each I think)

    Yes Jap, just undo bolts and direct replacement. Brake lever comes with Cross Pin which must be located in the master cylinder plunger correctly but no different than OEM operation.

    I nearly went for Gold but went subtle in the end :)

    Any time Ray,

    But don't worry they really are plug n play. I had to wiggle the clutch lever to get it out just because the bolts for the control grip are slightly in the way, but if I wasn't so lazy I could have just loosend them off a touch to move it out of the way.
    The brake lever also just slots in, its just that there is a small cylindrical barrel (the cross pin) that you drop into the lever first, which itself has a hole/bore drilled into it, into which the little plunger on the master cylinder locates...... I think in theory you could put the lever in and the plunger pin does not locate into this holes, but its fairly obvious if it doesn't.

    The kit comes with a nice little note and diagram that describes the above.

    hopefully we'll meet up for a blast soon, I missed out on the action last wkend :)

    I thought you were broke ;) . Black eh, good man. As a said don't hold your breath, they might not come in for a month or so. intobikes only take your cash when they actually send them which should help.

    Well there here and On :cool: :cool: :cool:

    They arrived Wednesday and took all of 10 minutes each to fit :D :D :D

    They look great well happy with the brake, I have it set on no 5 and it feels great. :D

    The clutch is a little more tricky I want it on setting 4 but not enouph movment and clunky gear change so went to 5 with a twist of the cable and damn clutch slipped over the 120 mark, up to setting 6 and backed off the cable and seems to be playing OK but I really like it at setting 5 as it just feels spot on. :cool: :evil: :twisted:

    Will post a couple of pictures once i get chance to take them. ;) :ugeek:
