Hey dudes, I want to upgrade my levers on my 2004 R6, any suggestions on a good pair? Everything I find is from China.., cheers
funny thing... the OEM levers are smooth and provide the best feel & leverage under hard riding/racing conditions. If youre just putting around on the street... wont really matter.My hands are aching already from my OEM lol, guess I just gotta get used to it
I keep three fingers over brake lever and two on my throttle because I’m a scared noob lolIf your hands are aching, you are probably just doing too much with your hands. Grip the tank with your knees and take weight off your arms. You don't need to hold onto handlebars hardly at all. Seriously, I used to hold onto them like that is what kept me on the bike. Now I go around turns on the track just basically using my fingertips. If I want full throttle, I pull my hand back more than roll my wrist down. A cramp buster also helps you maintain throttle with a light grip. Cleaning the grips to get rid of any oil on them also means you don't have to hold on so tightly when you do hold on. At a stop you shouldn't be on the levers at all. Depending on gear, you have plenty of choices of speed at which you can idle. Maybe someone does a ton of stop and go traffic on their bike, and I just don't, but I don't see getting tired from holding the levers. Consider lubricating or replacing your cables if the clutch or throttle seems hard to move.
