Default Are there any aftermarket brake and clutch levers?

I have been searching for after market brake and clutch levers for my 2013 XTC and have not found much out there. Looks like Ness is the only set right now....and they look promising as they have a nice curve out at the end of the lever....anyone have them?

My problem is I come from a sport bike background (many years) and I am very used to riding using 2 fingers on the clutch and 1-2 on the front brake. I can manage the 1-2 finger front brake actuation but using 2 fingers on the clutch is basically impossible as it crushes my ring and pinky fingers before I can get the clutch to actuate and I hate pulling all fingers off the bars to grab the clutch.....just feels unsafe to me and being such a heavy bike than what I am used to.....

Anyway, just wondering if anyone knows of an aftermarket set or any suggestions on modifying the stock clutch lever?

Thanks!

It is , I have them ... They look awesome in person . Very nice lever job , but will still function as the stock do ... No extra leverage included . I have large hands and easily handle the 2 finger action . I can see those with smaller mitts having a harder time though .

Very encouraging! So when your're using 2 fingers the lever clears your other 2 digits on the grip? I also have no issues with using 2 fingers pulling in this tough clutch on the XCT. Been doing it on sport bikes for many years so I guess I've built up strength over the years.

Thanks LILMAGS500

I also found some other options just now here: http://www.jpcycles.com/2013-victory...en-ness?Nao=24

But I do like those Ness levers!

When you order from Jp or Dennis Kirk talk to some one there first.
They list parts for Vic but they will not work.


If you buy this mirror adapter you can put any h-d mirror on your bike
