Levers 919?

Hey guys! I’ve been looking to get some new levers. I have looked at the ASV levers (which are to expensive to justify imo) and some ones called Pro-Kadaskin. I’ve noticed a bunch of brake levers that have kinda a sharp contact point that makes a weird feel on the lever. I don’t know the brand of what the PO put on the bike, but they are pretty cheap.

They pretty solid? Why are the brake levers contact point not round? The ones I have now are the same way and without grease it rubs weird.

I recently bought these levers (a specific instance of the ubiquitous eBay levers) and am quite happy with them considering how cheap they are! I have a pair of genuine Pazzo levers on a different bike and they are pretty much identical despite costing an order of magnitude more. Of course caveat emptor and YMMV, I would carefully check the fitment of the front brake lever to be sure they're ok, but you should be doing that with any aftermarket levers anyway.

They look pretty good! I’d love to see a pic! Particularly of the contact point of the brake lever to the piston. Also MZS has levers for the 919. I’ve purchased MZS levers before and was surprised at the quality.

The master cylinder piston contact point is technically in the picture, but it's a bit hard to see since everything is black on black in that area.

Always grease the pivots and sliding surfaces. Don't over tighten the pivot nuts.

Thanks Doc. I'm going to get some as well. Short ones. I got some other short levers but find the knob on the end protrudes out the back of the lever slightly and is uncomfortable against my other fingers as I operate the lever. The levers your using the knob is level with the back of the lever.
