Default Adjustable Levers from Motea

I was looking for adjustable levers to make it a little easier on my once broken hand. I received these a couple of weeks ago and wanted to wait a few hundred miles before posting anything. So far so good. They were ordered form Motea in Germany, (link below). Since they are adjustable both brake and clutch I have found it made it more comfortable for me especially in traffic. As far as getting them they arrived in a week. The install was easy and straight forward. There is a slight difference as the Motea lever does not use the sleeve for the brake side. Just the pin and a little grease. You may need to adjust the clutch cable depending on where you set the adjustment wheel. The price for the levers is very reasonable but if you are in US the shipping is very expensive which was expected. The total was $139.00. All in all I am very happy with the purchase and they are a very good alternative to the very expensive LSL levers.

I just plan on doing everything twice when I start it and that way when it takes 3 times to get it right I'm only half as mad.

Not on mine. I actually just made a slight adjustment using the lever adjustment wheel and it worked out great.

Just curious if you are still using these? Any issues?

No issues with them. Kevin Cross commented on how good they felt when he was tuning my bike. He thought it made the clutch pull much lighter.

My levers just came in today. Total cost $84.
Ordered July 13, shipped July 15, arrived by USPS today.
Not sure why when they say on website that I'm paying for UPS shipping they sent regular postal. No biggie.

I'll get them installed on the weekend.

This is just me holding new lever above the stock chrome.
Sorry didn't get pics from exactly same angle as you can see by engine but lever is in the same position.

Top is adjusted fully in. Bottom is fully out which is nearly identical to stock reach.
