    Brake Lever for shorter reach

    I'm trying to find an aftermarket brake lever designed for smaller hands for a 2014 TW. Does anyone know of a company that makes them ...or a lever from a different bike that would work? (I tried ASV's adjustable lever but it doesn't fit correctly)

    I was searching around. I don't know how small your reach is if a ASV isn't working.. You might have modify the stock or modify another one.

    Welcome to the forum Ronnie!

    Maybe I could trade you my custom bent lever for your stock one !

    Seriously, you can reduce the reach some by using the adjustment screw or you could try bending the lever to change the curve to bring it in closer to the hand grip. I'd suggest having a spare lever on hand before trying to bend yours. Sometimes they will bend and sometimes they just break. Also, be careful not to bring it in so close that you bottom out against the grip before reaching maximum braking.

    They use to make plastic levers that turned in. I still have one in my box of stuff.
    I can look tomorrow, and post pic. If you'd like, then just PM me.

    The shortie is plastic? Do you remember who makes it? I would love to find a shortie that fits without spending big $$ on ASV levers...

    Brake Lever for shorter reach

    Sun Line is molded in the end.
    I didn't try it to see if it would fit but they fit all my other Yamaha's. I have no idea why I don't have clutch levers. Might have "loaned" them out.

    If OP doesn't want it you can have it.
