    2022 levers thread! what are you running?

    Heyo!

    I need to replace the levers on my 660 (one is broken from an unfortunate drop, and I hate the factory chrome) - wondering what everyone is running?

    I tried the TEC levers when I first got the bike but was bit with the wrong size paddle for the brake light (making it always stay on) so I reverted back to stock.

    I am wary of Amazon specials as well, but places like RevZilla don't seem to have many options or stock (I am located in the US btw).

    So what is everyone running outside of factory levers?

    Running the Evotech adjustable shorts. Fit and finish is first rate. Only downside is if you are running some sort of clamp-on throttle holder there is not a lot of space left for your fingers once the device makes contact with your lever.

    Stock brake + STR adjustable clutch. I like the OEM look.

    I may have to give the Evotech's a shot, i'll like go standard length though, shorties are not my jam - thanks for the recommendation!

    Yes, shorties are an acquired taste. I really like them on the braking side as I can do a strong two finger pull on the lever and my other two fingers donít get trapped between the lever and grip. Horses for courses and all that.
