why would you buy cheap knockoffs?? you make so much money in a week/month you can afford the best levers money can buy..... everytime you drop your bike:lmaoThis just happened to me today, installed some cheap levers off ebay that cost $24(CNC levers) as a quick replacement. As soon as I hit around 50 MPH my front brakes fully locked causing my bike to completely skid and wobble thrusting me forward almost off my bike without even touching the lever. I was lucky enough to keep my bike up and control the skid. The front wheel was still completely locked, I had to remove the lever to unlock it. When I inspected the lever you can tell the hole where the plunger goes in is just to narrow. Ordered some FP levers today, no more cheap knock offs for me
Reading comprehension isn't your strong suit, is it? The main issue isn't that the cheap levers break (although it does happen), it's that the tolerances on them are so sloppy that on some, the hole that the plunger goes in isn't quite deep enough. That means that they push in on the piston even when the lever isn't pulled and that causes the pads to drag which causes heat which causes the brake fluid to expand.So much shit about ebay levers but no pics at all. How is that possible.
So many riders are using those and nobody to post pics of broken levers>??
I just looked at your previous posts, see you have an 03. I've had a GSX-R from that generation too as well as several older ones and you're right, they have a knuckle that pushes in on the piston from the side.Not all bikes have that hole on levers that you are talking about.
