    Howdy folks!
    Has anyone fitted a shorty front brake lever to thier CT? If so, what make/where from?
    Im guessing one from a VFR1200F would fit....but thats just a guess?
    If anyone has done this, does it make much of a difference?
    i find you dont need a full handful of front on these things even in "panic-mode"!

    cheers

    Rarely go near that lever, I find the back brake is perfect to slow the bike and keep it stable and without any diving. And I am so tight that it's cheaper to replace 2 rear pads than 4 front ones! :164:
    Anyway, there has been several posts over the years on stubby levers, so do a search and you should get a few options
