Brake and Clutch levers.
« on: March 11, 2015, 04:48:56 PM »
I've had my CT now for about 9 months and really like it.  The only thing though are the adjustable levers.  They don't adjust enough for my small hands.  Anyone fitted aftermarket ones, and did they work ok?

Thanks,  Paul.

The front brake lever is fine but I cannot adjust the clutch lever enough - same problem as you.

For my last two vara's and now the XT i have bought the chinese billet alloy adjustable ones from ebay, fantastic quality and look great, and at £15 a pair they are perfect.

I had also used folding - adjustable levers when I had the CT. Bought from aliexpress.com for a trivial price. The quality was ok and I had no problems with them.

The clutch lever I bought had 6 levels of adjustment. The first two levels were not enough to fully disengage and I couldn't start the bike up when I pulled the clutch all the way. But when stationary, the bike wasn't crawling either, like it should when the clutch isn't fully disengaged... Didn't bother me the least, I used it at the 3rd level anyway.

Reminder: I think CT uses the same levers as the 2006-2009 CBF1000 levers. Should help with the searching.

I could not find one listed for my bike but when i looked the cb1300 was the same lever so opted for that. I ordered just the brake lever for £10 posted and thought if it does not fit never mind but it was perfect and fitted and looked great.

before my XT i had a tiger 1050 and fitted piazzo levers ... could not believe the difference it made
before i picked up my XT from the dealer i made sure a set was put on my bike ... night and day difference
defo worth buyin a set of piazzo for the XT IMHO
