    I hope you guys are right, "With this Trust Me they work" and that it's not a "Snake Oil or Smoke and Mirrors fix" :008:  I just ordered a set from the Sekitoba Web Site which was cheaper than Fleebay, and the pain wasn't all that bad. A$80.00 :006: and I gotta say I have wasted more than that on Motorcycles over the years.

    and I must confess that it was the first thing I noticed when I first bought the bike as it was totally different from My previous Thunderbird 1600. When they come in a couple of weeks I will let you know.

    Gerry....
    I am thousands of miles away from you but let me just say that If I was your neighbour I would still recommend you change the levers..
    You will NOT regret it..
    Just be carefull you dont lose the little brass barrel type jobby thats in the original clutch lever as its needed to be transferred to the new lever..

    Its Number 14 0n the attached image. (Officially known as a "Master Cylinder Bush").

    Thanks for that Dave, that clearly depicts the difference. :467:

    As I said earlier I ordered these last Friday from Sekitoba but for some reason, I have received no notification that they have not dispatched them, I emailed them last night (AM Tuesday your time), and still no reply. Hopefully, they will come back to me with some info. I am leaving on a LDR "Long Distance Ride", in a couple of weeks and it would be nice to have them before that.

    Once again thanks for taking the time to take the photos to clear up the confusion.

    I actually sent 2 Emails. with no response. Eventually, I got a hold of someone via Messenger and He said that they were out of stock with a re-supply coming in on Friday and that they should be able to dispatch this Friday. So here's hoping as I am leaving on a LDR in 3 weeks time.

    Reading along and decided halfway this topic to buy them... Then read they were much cheaper at the site itself. Now awaiting if I can cancel my original order on Ebay and order them at Ekitobaracing themself.

    My question: how difficult is it to change them? Any tips?

    Kind regards,

    Hi Rogier,
    The levers are very easy to change with basic tools.
    Personally I removed the hand-guards completely to give better access, but some have left these in place & just loosened them a little.
    Main tip I have is to be careful not to drop / lose the brass insert when removing the old levers - you will need to fit this in the new replacement levers... everything else is a straight 1:1 replacement.

    Hope you refund & re-order works out !
