Off-the-Road levers

Question

Totti

Does anyone have any experience about the clutch and brake levers sold by Off The Road in Germany? 

They interest me because they are adjustable and foltable. The price looks reasonable, but are they any good?

Hi, I have fitted Pazzo leavers which get great reviews and are the same fitment as the MT07 a bit costly but not sure about the quality. I bought a Chinese set for my GSA 800 at £30.00 a pair and did 17K miles a lot off off road with no problem so would suggest checking reviews before buying them.

In other forums they say that any levers for the MT-07 will fit...

For me- I have used similar "breakaway" style levers but ultimately went back to OEM as they are cheap to replace and most days "off road" I carry a spare set...  Only change I do is cut the rounded ball end off and I do make sure the lever housing is just loose enough to spin in case I do crash or to change the angle to suit riding such as standing up or sitting down... 

 

Ultimately I think it comes down to personal preference, some people want all 4 fingers on the clutch, me I only need my middle finger on the clutch lever, the other fingers stay on the bar... The fingers that stay on the handlebar act as a indication to me I have engaged the clutch enough to shift/slip clutch when the lever taps my fingers...

I'm also looking  for 2 finger levers but the ones from Off The Road and similar look more like pling-pling not an real upgrade for offroad use.

But there should be levers of other Yamaha bikes which fit (but I'm not sure )

I use ASV levers on my dirtbikes. They last and are customizable. At the motorcross track alot of guys use these

All ASV C6 levers feature a special pivot design that allows the lever to fold out of harms way in the event of a crash or tip-over. Instead of bendin…

I'll be mounting these soon. They are Chinese, and I had a set of these on my Triumph Tiger 800xc for about 2 years. Worked fine, never any problems. Bought those to see whether they'd make a difference, planning to buy brand ones if they did. Never came to that :-).

 

They are about 20€ for the set, I'll make pictures when they are mounted and when I've had a chance to try them out. I still may choose to buy main brand afterwards, but we'll see.

I'm debating with myself if I should take the plunge on Chinese levers or invest more money into something like puig... What are peoples opinions about the Chinese ones? 

I've read numerous reviews and people tend to be happy with them but some are saying they are concerned about safety... I'm confused 

😅😅

Yes always have this ,debate did 2 years and about 10,000 miles on an unbranded Chinese pair with j no problems at all but have heard people having problems. I have opted for a pair of Pazzo ones this time which are great but expensive

Good question.

 

I always think "what are the most crucial parts of a motorbike safety-wise"? Other than the rider....they are the tyres, the brakes and the controls. I'm sure a Chinese option might be perfectly safe, but why take the chance for some extra ££ if a front-brake lever snaps? I'm the same with tyres. I buy the best I can afford sticky and grip-wise. I don't care about wear at all. I might if I was doing a 5,000 mile adventure.

 

There's enough dangerous situations on the road with other users, so why risk it further with a potential "money-saver"?

 

I would happily buy a cheapo exhaust end can, LED fog-lights etc. i.e. where safety doesn't come into it.

Hi Rich,

 

This is exactly my concern in regards to chinese levers and so many people seem to have had good experiences with them hence me considering them.

 

I think I will spend the extra money and not spend it twice and go with Puig brand or something that is recommended and has a good reputation.

 

Have you got aftermarket levers on your bike?

 

Cheers Aleks

Not at the minute. Just standard. I like them to be honest. I've done plenty of other things mind😎

Completely valid point, even though one does not necessarily exclude the other (brand parts can and do also fail).

I know the German police had been known to check bikes for aftermarket parts (including levers) for homologation. Just to be clear: I'm not promoting the Chinese ones, just sharing.

Presuming levers have ABE then they are on the safe side I guess.

Correct. Homologation requires periodical (destructive) retesting of regular production.
