    I did, but I did a small DIY job to the lever, so it covers the brake switch.

    Wow good job Eryk , but we shouldn't have to do this to get it to work properly. Will see what tec has to say on the matter.

    I'm not sure if they'll say anything. In a year, since the issue of the brake switch became apparent, they withdrew their levers as compatible with the Trident. At least in UK, their US dealer seems t be a separate business entity.

    many thanks Eryc, what thickness is the brass plate.

    I think it was 0.2mm I didn't want to increase thickness of the setup, just made it a bit wider.
    Whatever I had as a leftover from photoetched parts for my Airfix models.

    Recently installed these levers and haven't had any negative issues thus far.

    Maybe they changed the spec. Wonder when the modified levers were ordered and fitted?

     :0461:Just fitted these to mine no problems what so ever, brake switch operates fine no mods needed. :046:
    Also bar end mirrors look great and fit well.
