Dont be so sure half your bike isn,t made in china anyway. All manufacturers outsource a load of part supplies and they will be looking for the cheapest they can get.

yup, just like the big difference between staying in at a Holiday Inn with Cock roaches, VS a nice Marriott. You go man!

Re: china cnc adjustable levers?

Are these the same levers that are being advertised in the upper banner for $62/set.

Re: china cnc adjustable levers?

Yeah, only they are $45 a set on Ebay.


They're fine. People can complain about the metal not being as amazing as american metal, but they break just the same when you crash them, and since they break easier they tend not to take anything else valuable with them.

You'll break the clip-on long before you break these levers during the normal course of operation.

Re: china cnc adjustable levers?

I have aftermarket levers. I got some that did not have holes in. My bike is a K3 so no plungers just a barrel to push in, no problems...

Just look at the levers, test them and trust your own judgement

Motorcycling is an expensive hobby. The lengths (and risks) people will go to only to try to save $20 or some shit never ceases to amaze me.

If you want to "cut corners", then buy a cheap, knock-off fender eliminator kit, or windscreen, or decal kit or some shit like that. Don't be stupid when it comes to things like brakes, chain/sprockets, controls etc.

Before you buy anything cheap/knock-off, answer this question...

"If this part fails, can it cause me to crash?"

If the answer is "yes", then make sure you buy quality parts from a reputable source.

Whats even worse is that there are so many threads here about the brake failure that occurs with some of these levers yet people disregard that and buy them anyways. Motorcycling is a luxury hobby&is not cheap. Yet people insist on being cheap,buying chinese shit(fairings/levers/etc) and have NO issues at all coming here and making a post crying to us when they crash their shit&end up in the hospital cause they were too fucking cheap to spend a few extra dollars on proper levers...and then theres always the ones who post "all my buddys have them on their bikes&Ive had them on all bikes and they work perfectly" blah blah. Idiots

Re: china cnc adjustable levers?

I hate bring out an old thread, but I was reading up on this and trying to decide why people just didn't replace the Suzuki bearing in place of the new one in the chinese levers? What is the difference now? Just because the label says made in the USA doesnt mean the material came from the USA. I know people feel strongly about this but if the OEM bearing in the brake lever is placed in the chinese lever then what's so wrong with it? It has all the clearence it needs and is promised to be in spec.

In some cases, that may be true, but the United States follows a strict quality control procedure when it comes to safety items. Try getting China to do a batch of levers and have QC look it over. More often than not, it seems as though the chinese levers do not come within spec anyway. Before Retard69 got banned from here and GSXR.com, he ordered chinese levers, and used a fucking hammer to put them on his bike

he used a hammer? at that point send em back I am really just trying to decide on if it would even be worth to put the OEM bearing in the lever but I feel people are so biased on levers that I would never get an honest answer? because in all honesty if you install something on the bike and do it wrong as such happened with this thread it can be deadly or lead to injury. I'm not knocking ASV or CRG or the like. I would just like an honest opinion on what the difference would be? the material? I.E. metal

The differences between Pazzo, CRG, ASV, FP Racing are negligible beyond the price points. When you throw chinese into there, you're looking at a hit or miss batch of levers, as seen by the swarm of people who "have never had a problem, so they're 100% safe."

The material tends to be different, china is cheap for a reason. They like to use what is called "pot metal", look it up, and then look up billet machining. Make your choice from there.

For reference, my first bike had chinese levers when I bought it. They were stiffer, mostly due to a very small (we're talking .001's of an inch) difference from where it needed to be. I replaced those with FP Racing, and have never looked back since. My track back is rocking OEM's, my CBR600F4i is the bike my brother uses. It came with chinese levers, and they have been perfect. All the dimensions checked out spot on, so he's using them without a problem.

For most of us, we just like knowing that we're taking the right precautions, and not putting ourselves in harms way to save a few bucks.

Well I got the levers the clutch was easy but the brake side doesn't wanna fit unless I beat it with a hammer. And when I do get the pin in. It sticks really really bad. Any thoughts. Very upset. It's grinding the lever down when I put it in the bracket. Wtf. Should go on smooth

He got a wrong lever, probably ordered a wrong one. That wouldn't be a surprise according to his other threads.
