Re: Chinese Levers

Seems a mixture of opinions (y) Some people have said they don't like the idea of using a Chinese brake lever for fear of failure on such a safety critical part. Question is, has anyone actually heard of any cases of Chinese brake lever catastrophic failure ? or is it no more than a fear of somethin...

Re: Bradley Smith

I dont think Smith wants to call it a day though. I believe he wants a motogp ride but none are available to him, so he has taken something that was on offer to stay in the motogp paddock. Many GP riders see wsbk or BSB as a big backwards step. Bradley has alot of talent would have liked to see him ...

Re: Bradley Smith

Too young to be a test rider imo. He should be racing. If not in motogp another series.

How many racers become test riders and then land a good ride in a race team.

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

I would steer clear of any 675 MVs as they are no longer in production. Why is that Duke ? They got issues ? Too many models in the range I think. MV is now backed by Russian money. Best avoid the Novichok upgrades. I would use dettol wipes on any spares or on the bar grips when handed back from se...

After riding the Ninja 400 the other day part of me is saying I should get another sportsbike while I can still ride one. Do it! https://www.jordanbikes.com/pages/used/used-bikes/2016-16-MV%20Agusta-F3-800cc/2c92999f656718f50165801a3dc93e37.htm?YEAR=2016&REGLETTER=16&MAKE=MV%20Agusta&MO...

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.
