I had the ebay ones on my CBR for a year before I sold it in anodized blue and they were perfect, no fading or anything else. Bought JPR Signature from Cycle to try out, still half less than Pazzo's :)

I sold my Daytona and picked up a 2011 Speed Triple. Anyone know which of these Chinese levers will work with this bike? Has a Brembo master brake cylinder, if that makes a difference...

SO looking for any ebay levers that will fit the 675R. Anyone got some that they had good experience with? There is quite a bit of them on the site.

Wise up people.
  • Politicians are taking everything from you because they convince you that you can get something for nothing. Someone has to pay for it.
  • Politicians take away every Freedom and Liberty by making you afraid and making you think they will protect you. Bull Shit.
  • Chinese are taking your jobs because you are convinced that you can get something for nothing. Life Never works that way.
  • Quality costs money. Just how it is. Nothing worth while is free.
I too hate being raped by the prices of Motorcycle specific anything.
But some things you should not compromise on.

The Front brake lever is not controlling just a brake.
That brake control is your very life.

Why don't you just sell your 675 and buy a China no name bike. Hell they look the same more or less. Cost 1/3 of the price of a Triumph. They have two wheels just like a 675.

Just because a Chinese item looks the same does NOT mean the materials are of the same quality, the fit is the same, or the temper and strength of the materials/item is up to spec for intended purpose.
  • I will not be putting no name china tires on my bike. No half assed levers off of ebay. America made Dunlop Q2 tires. Name brand levers. From a vendor that supports/helps keep this web site up. Yes I will be paying more $$$ than you save the penny wise guys who think you are so damned smart.
  • I will not be putting recycled car oil in my bike and running 6000miles before oil change
  • I will not be putting $2 wally world oil filters made for cars on my bike as many have suggested.
  • I will not wear a $49 bike helmet.
  • I will not put wally world thirty cent cheaper gas in my bike.
But you are grown kids. Do as you like.

Find the eBay ones sold by mcmotoparts. I've had them on the R for 6 months, great quality, no fade. Same provider for my BMW F800R levers, a year later, no probs.

And, to the side topic, if you aren't riding a Harley or Buell, your money hasn't met your mouth.

Figured I would chime in since I just got my levers from thetwowheels.com

The price was ridiculously cheap when you look at the parts involved...There were more tool marks than I would expect from a super high end lever but I like a bit of personality. They are not light which is a good thing in my books if I am buying a 'cheap' product. I also do not expect any bubbles in the metal due to the following...

The positive:
-They look great and better than I expected.
-Anodizing appears to be relatively thick and durable.
-The actual mechanisms feel excellent.

The Negative:
-They did not fit the housing. And by did not fit, I mean wayyyy off. I spent at least an hour with a file before it would fit into the stock housing. It was not just a matter of the anodizing but I had to file off a bunch of metal as well. This is where my comment on metal quality comes from above, nothing but straight metal that I filed off, no bubbles.

That being said, I think these levers are a great deal. They look and function awesome once you do some modifications to make them fit. I realize they may not be the same process as the high end levers but am more than confident they will not fail and extremely happy with them.

My 2 cents...

I got a pair of folding adjustable levers both for length and distance as a X-mas gift. I had to do some mods to make it fit right...spent about a couple hours on a bench with a drill press and dremel. Once I got it to fit right and smoothed out sharp edges, I liked them.

I didn't care so much about looks since I was all about functionality over form for track/race use. Since they were a gift it was just my time spent...At $50 Im not so sure if I would spend that kind of money...if you're trying to show off some bling at bike night, then stick with the expensive name brands.

I tried out the eBay levers for a while. They work fine, but you get what you paid for. Mine were faded heavily. And the feel of the eBay vs the crg's was a world apart. I didn't find the eBay levers to be unsafe of anything. But would not reccomend them.
