It was $ 87.99 with free shipping. I had a coupon that I found online also.

When it is really cold I keep my fingers straight over the clutch and break leavers because my fingers also hang down enough they will catch the wind.  I am palming the handlebar, my palms semi cup the grips and fingers straight resting on the levers to keep them out of the wind.  My thumbs are still under the grips.   It works for me.   :002:
I do the same, but for safety purpose!
Having the hands already on the levers can spare that millisecond which turns doom into regular yelling toward stoopid cagers.

Ordered this set - free shipping to the US. Will report back if it fits  :002: or if it fails  :012:

Fits like a glove. Folding and length adjustable. Recommended upgrade. Material and craftmanship seems adequate - will report on longevity after a few thousand miles and a few drops  :169: :821:

First use report: Much, much better than the stock levers in terms of friction point feel and overall ergonomics, both the clutch and the brake. A definite improvement and I highly recommend them for the Gen 3.

Hi Icy

I've been looking at those levers but the supplier doesnt know the answer to my question - but I'm hoping you do!

As we all know the clutch action on the Tex happens at its far reaches which in theory for me with big hands shouldn't be a problem BUT I've got Grip Puppies on the bars which naturally cuts down my reach!

So my question is does the better adjustment or the shape of the levers bring them closer to the grip? Cheers
