They'll come around again. I see those things on EBay all the time.

They're pretty cool. Just not worth $120 to me.

Most of what is on 919 and sportbike parts on EBay is junk. Really, how many bar ends and mirrors and usless friggin crap can those vendors sell anyway?

You know... the replacement levers on CRGs are cheap. All you need it the Knuckle piece.

If you can find wrecked levers for cheap, $30 and you can replace the lever piece.

I did this when I swapped over parts from my RR to my RC. I had the levers, but needed the knuckes. I ended up getting the knuckle piece for about $10.

I bought a set of CRG lever thinking the same thing. I have short fingers. I think the CRG lever are an even farther reach than the stock. I'm not too happy about that. Now they do look good but that's not what I was looking for.

I just installed a set of CRG/CNG levers on my 919. The brake lever is fantastic!! However he clutch lever seems a bit farther away (even at it's closest setting) than the oem clutch lever. The brake lever is very comfortable at 3 or 4. However .... it is a stretch to get to the clutch lever at it's closest setting (1). What's up with that? Did I order the wrong clutch lever? The part number is what CRG/CNG recommends for the 919.

I've tried figuring out a way to get it done, but all I was able to do is loosen up the clutch cable some and that helped.

I'm working with putting some rubber spacers (left over tech-spec material) between the base plates of the levers and the clutch lever mount along with the adjustment of the clutch cable to move the action closer to the grip. (This thread has me thinking). So far, this seems promising but I'll need a bit more time to see if this is a possible/reasonable fix. Loosening up the clutch cable is an improvement. I need to experiment with how much adjustment is possible without having to make a custom cable and keep full engagement of the clutch within the free play zone and how thick the shims should be.

Seems to me that this is what I paid CRG to research ... but whatever.
