It's a good idea to keep the OEM ones in the bike's toolbox just in case the bike tips over while away from home somewhere and a lever breaks off. It's pretty hard to get home without a working clutch lever.

Old Dog Well I guess I am different, the used 06 I bought had the Kury wide levers and the grips, I hated them both, liked the stock grips and levers much better, I don't have really small hands nor large ones either, about Med. or close to average I think, but the grips and wide levers in my opinion are more suited to large hands...
Just sayin...You know how opinions are. ...lol...

It has some photos of the lever replacement. I don't see mention of the switch Lance talks about so be on the lookout for it.

They passed me, he just mentioned that I should get it replaced asap. This is in MA.

As for the clutch lever, I didn't replace that one so I would listen to Lance, haha.

KIMMERLING What! How do you remove the switch? oh man!

lance328 BE CAREFULL!! when replacing the clutch lever not to snap off the plunger for the safety switch, recommend removing the switch before you change levers.

SeanRP When I bought my bike The brake lever had the ball broken off from a drop. I bought the same thing you did and it took probably 3 minutes to put it on, no worries
