Replacement brake / clutch levers

As luck would not have it , I got some R&G bar end protectors a while ago and they are being fitted next week whilst bike is in for its annual service. Too late . Dropped the bike today on reverse camber road edge and snapped the end of the brake lever( as designed). I had no issue with the stock levers and could just get the brisket never replaced with the same again or could upgrade to something smarter. Anyone changes theirs and got any recommendations?

I fitted these two years ago - cost effective , easy to fit and work fine

Bummer on a tall bike when you stop and that ground is just a few inches lower than you expect it to be  - I have almost dropped it a couple of times in that situation but just caught it in time  - so I sympathise with you

    Thanks .. Iíve already got the evotech crash bungs and axel slides fitted and was impressed with the quality and company. I think it makes sense to go down this route.

    Another vote for the Evotech levers.

    Thanks... looking a strong contender. The next decision is standard or short or a combo! Due to the snapping of the brake lever itís now working like a short level and works really well. I clearly brake with just two fingers and no chance of having the other fingers trapped if grabbing an emergency handful. I seem to be using a full hand on the clutch though! So that would suggest a combo ! Too complex

    I think you will find you can still get a full hand on a shorty lever  - at least I can
