Dude I have the exact same eggroll-alloy ones on my bike! I honestly haven't had one single complaint to date... In 4 years or so, if I remember right.

30,000 mile 919 survivor. No plans of stopping the abuse any time soon.

Looks good. The prior owner put Chinese levers on my 07 919. In six years, I haven't had an issue. I like buying knives and have bought a couple Chinese clones and they are pretty decent.

I got Chinese ones as well. For $40, I am not complaining. They look good and work well. For price, can't go wrong. As for fading that some people report, my bike sits indoors except the days I ride. Not too concerned.

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

Weirdly enough on the ones I have (look like the same ones in this post) neither of the levers faded, but the block that pushes the master cylinder on the brake lever has faded to a brownish yellow... doesn't bother me much though...

Mine will be here tommorow! Is there any walkthrough on swapping out the levers. I have never done it. Is there anything to it?

This is a good time to lube the lever pivots, lube the clutch cable(or replace), and/or change the pivot nuts to nylocks. I have the knockoffs on the ST and both 919's.

I have the same color 919 and purchased the same color combo chinese levers. If I were to purchase it again, I would go with something other then red. But as far as functionality, no issues.
