7 Click GP Levers Anyone?
I don't know what material the clutch and brake levers are made from but both the FJR and my old ST gave me a very dirty left hand after riding 20 min in heavy traffic. I tried cleaning them, but no improvement, so it must be the metal that "rubs off" on my fingers.
So, I decided to try 3rd party levers: 7 Click GP Levers. They arrived today, but I don't think they fit, despite them being specifically for the FJR. The hole that the brake activation pin slides into is not quite as deep as the original lever, which means that the brakes are activated slightly even before I touch the lever. The difference is less than a millimeter, but that's enough to not fully release the brake.
I'm obviously not going to ride like this. Has anyone else tried these levers? I guess I could drill the hole a bit deeper, but feel this shouldn't be necessary on levers specifically made for this bike...
