++But they're still chinese crap... the aluminum might have voids or god knows what else.
lmao Did you get your $$$ back for that piece of shit?There was a 4 cylinder engine block encased inside the billet that hadn't melted before they made the pour. It was so nasty, that once you got to a certain point, you could actually knock the steel away and see the rusted surface of the block.
Sometimes the differences are difficult to discern by naked eye alone. The brake actuator cam that pushes on the MC plunger can be off by a fraction of a millimeter, and even with the knock-off lever installed and you tottle around town, things can seem fine. Then out in the backroads or on the freeway, the braking system finally gets some heat into it, the fluid expands and your brakes lock up.I agree on "you get what you pay for" But I said F'it and ordered a set for $40 shipped. Took about a month to get here but once they came. We laid them side by side with a set of my buddies Pazzo's and the only difference was the decal on the Pazzo set. Hell, they even weighed the same. So I guess it's really a hit or miss.
I searched for china cnc adjustable levers under 06/07 - gsxr 600/750 and did not find a thread. I look at it this way either I get the cheap knock offs mainly because they are cheap or I keep the stock levers on. I have no reason to spend around 150 on a pair of levers for quality when I have no experience with them and whether or not I would like them and if I didn't like them that would be a waste of 150 dollars or so compared to 40. I would also rather support my local shops around my area where I could benefit ten times more then just being another customer on a website ordering stuff. lol Thanks for the replys on what I exactly asked.There are tons of threads on this subject.
Cliff Notes - you get what you pay for and those chinese knock off levers are "hit and miss". You may get some that are great with no issues...and your shit might lock up at any given time (if you can even get them installed).
Spend your money on quality shit and support the people/vendors who support us.
