Reviving the dead thread, late to the party here... I'm looking @ shorty adjustables, but read this note about the lever/perch interface designs for some of the cross-application lever-sets - maybe not operating the brake switch or clutch safety switch. That's a risk I want to eliminate, as I ride mostly street. Whatever levers I get, I want 'em to interact with those switches/perches exactly like the OEM levers.Even though several will fit in the perches, typically most of the shorty levers listed for the YZ's and other dirt-only models lack the center blade which operate the brake switch and clutch safety switch.
Of course that is also true of a lot of the normal length ones, as well.
Hi, It's a 2004. Thanks for the reply. Yeah, initially, have found several options that seem like they'll work - I'm just trying to avoid the headache of getting a set that isn't designed to work with the clutch & brake switches.What year is your bike?
There are lots of shorty levers that will work for 2001+ TW's that have the front disc brake. I don't think that anyone has found shorty's that work for the 1987 - 2000 TW's with the front drum brake.
I think that recently someone was going to try flipping a shorty clutch lever over and use it on the drum brake perch, but I never read any results whether this was successful or not.
2004 TW, hydraulic disc - ASV's look nice, but I've got other farkles to buy that would get eaten up by ASV-level $. I'm more of a 'nicest Chinese levers' $ can buy kinda buyer on this item. Thanks for the reply.
