Do it to it. I don’t remember which Chinese levers I put on the bike almost 2 years ago, but they’ve held up nicely. Only thing I could complain of is, they sometimes lose their setting when washing the bike(I probably bump them with the rag too hard) and the anodizing is fading a little from my gloves where I ride covering the brake and clutch.

I’d buy em again.

I donít have time to wait for levers from China. Do the iconic normal Chinese levers I think of have any stateside? But I keep seeing MZS and FTRT levers with decent reviews and are sub 35$ on amazon.

Go with em. Didn’t check if they were prime shipping on amazon, but here’s some on eBay from Sacramento.

The model years seem accurate, they can probably be trusted.

They are 35$ for prime. Might get those so I can make an ad soon before I go back on hitch and build some interest

I suggested MZS to a guy and they locked up on him and he went down. Good luck.

A video about this just happened up pop up on my YouTube feed today. Comment section is rife with people having issues with mzs levers. Also, side note, did not know crg had a spectrum model line, easier on the wallet too.

Thereís actually a very simple Reason why and itís improper installation. MZS even includes a pretty Detailed install guide in the package telling you how to avoid this issue, itís espeically with certain models.

Install issues don't account for the poor design and tolerances tho.

My bikes only get CRG levers. Crash-tested them on the gen1 and despite losing a fairing the levers remained useable. Since then have added them to every bike owned. Saved a few bucks by finding them used in some cases.
