Question Replace OEM brake/clutch levers with???

Looking for ideas on a good (but not crazy expensive) replacement levers for my 2016 FJR. Haven't done this before, so is it a simple swap or more detailed. Thanks

Easy peasy swap.

You can go the expensive route like AGV or CRG - but I got mine here: http://www.the2wheels.com/

Under $40 for the pair shipped to my door.

Quality is very nice and they look great. I went with black lever/red adjusters for my '14.

Thanks, they look great. They have a blue option, while not exactly matching, might work. Were they easy to swap out?

They should only take a week or two to arrive. They're worth the wait. Great levers that improve both the ergos and the look. Be sure to re-grease the pivot bolt on each lever when you install them. Install is a five minute job.

Dammit, you guy's cost me more money! I just ordered a set, very reasonable, only question I have and should have asked first is about the length vs stock because I think the oe levers are on the short side, any inputs ?

I just bought a set of standard length levers from the2wheels and they just don't fit. I have only tried the brake lever, but the brake light won't activate under normal / low braking power. It takes a hard pull for it to activate, which to me is too dangerous to ride with. So, probably tossing them unless I can find a way to customize them. Probably not worth the time considering how cheap they were. Oh well, you get what you pay for I guess...
