Ironically Diamond rearsets are a copy of Sato (blush)

Re: Chinese Levers

I’ve got Chinese levers on my track 675 Blade, they adjust and fold in all possible directions, when I first got them I was dubious about the quality, so I set them up and then overload tested them way beyond a normal emergency panic brake (two hands) with no deformation or failure, in my industry ...

From my experience they are prone to a really bad whining noise which is impossible to fix.


No that can be fixed easily (y)

Re: Chinese Levers

I bought a set of these for 15 quid thinking I'd buy some ASV later on. Still on the bike 2 years later as they've been brilliant and can't see the ASVs being 10 times better. I am temped buy those Diamond Racing ones that Kwacky posted up though. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Short-Brake-Clutch-Lever...

Re: Chinese Levers

Haha fair point D and ASV are good levers had them on both the 10 & the Pani. There is method to my madness though. The 675 was always bought as a cheap hack for track days and the odd euro road trip, therefore I was keeping spending to eessentials and function rather than form. That said, never...

I fully agree but I also bet the OEM levers are cheap Chinese items.

Chinese Levers

I dont like the bit point on the none adjustable clutch lever of the 675.

I don't want to spend a fortune and there are loads of Brake & Clutch lever sets on ebay for less than £20.

Anyone any experience of Chinese parts ? Is it alright ? you get what you pay for ? Junk don't waste your money?

Re: Lorenzo having second thoughts?

If Lorenzo's presence upsets the order at Honda and rattles MM, that may help fuel the switch.

MM93 drifting the big Desmo would be special 8)

Re: Lorenzo having second thoughts?

Totally agree. MM93 is the best rider in motogp and only getting better with maturity. No way Honda risk that, intentionally anyway. But what if MM93 has expressed a desire to leave as he wants to win on different manufacturers to cement his greatness. Who knows but I can't see mm93 staying with Hon...

Re: Lorenzo having second thoughts?

I wouldn't like to be Honda management. When they signed Jorge he was down on his luck and easy to bill him as no.2 in the team like Pedrosa and largely he would have had to comply . Now he is confident and back to winning ways the ego won't be anyone's No.2. I can see fireworks behind closed doors.
