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 :motorcycl

Let me know how you like them. I thought about those. I still might get them in a few months. I also picked up the 12 led spinner brake light. That should get a few peoples attention.

I needed a cheap lever because I have to get my bike inspected, and I not sure if they would pass is with the end of the brake lever missing.

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. :beerchug:

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.

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...

Funny, I put the wide levers on mine because they reminded me of my 1994 Sportster and the skinny levers started hurting my hands after long rides. I wear a size small or medium glove depending on how they're cut (short fingers with wide palms). The levers from Küryakyn are nice and shiny too. No install problems at all. 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.
