WTB - Black OEM brake and clutch levers that are on the newer bikes. Lots of us go to aftermarket levers. If you do and want to sell the OEM black levers ( not shiny chrome style) and want to sell please contact me?
Never thought about it to be honest. Good thinking. I am guessing it will be more cost effective going this way. I will wait to hear from someone here that wants to update to after market levers.
In fact I have aftermarket black shorties in good condition with Gold adjusters if anyone wants to swap? I can send pictures of them if someone is interested. I used them for a short time but prefer the feel of the OEM levers.
I don't think you'll be sorry if you go with Pazzo's long instead of OEM. The black anodized ebay offerings will sometimes (and I have experienced this) turn to sh1t brown in less than a season. Pazzo's are good. The powder coating route seems great if you really like the OEM feel.
Thanks for the info. I have had Pazzos before on my Hayabusa some time ago. Yes high quality but not what I am looking for. I just love the feel of the OEM levers on this bike - simple and effective. The only thing is the silver/chrome look crap, the black however look ok. I am sure because everyone generally change them it's only matter of time I find someone willing to part with them, or swap with the levers I have...
