They arrived today!
 
I looked on Yamaha site some time ago and I found that they sell clutch and brake levers "special made". Price is high, so I searched the original manufacturer of those levers, and I found it:
 
GILLES Tooling GmbH
26, Op der Ahlkerrech
L-6776 Grevenmacher
Luxembourg
 
Price is a little less than Yamaha: around 200€ in total.
 
Today those parts arrived. They seem really well made on CNC machine.
Tomorrow I'll install them!
 
Here some photos.

And here we are!

 

Some more photos of brake and clutch installed.

 

Trimming and shape are fantastic (imho).

Just put some on recently myself. Just wondering if your clutch lever hit the barkbusters any ?? I assume they are barkbusters ..

My brake lever clears perfect but the clutch hits the backbone on the bb's..

I have the Tenere specific kit as well..

Me to. I have the bark busters and the levers are physically too big.  

There was no way i was going to extend the guards 20mm to squeeze em in so sent the levers back.

shame though but done know why there are made so bulky:((

No mine doesn't touch the aluminium bar of Barkbusters...

I will upload some photos today...

 

(perhaps you bought generic Barkbusters and not the ones for Ténéré 700 ?)

No Sir, not the generic B/Bs. They backbone kit was the Tenere specific one..

And what's stranger the front brake lever clears the backbone but not the clutch..??

Where did you get the carbon fiber plate around your ignition switch??

Strange, i have the SW motech guards same as BB and the the brake lever was no way gonna fit . At least 1/2 inch from fitting. The clutch lever went in however the guard had to be extended out by 10 mm , they just looked so bulky so sent em back in the end

You send back the levers or the SW Motech hand guards?

Sent levers back as just too bulky for me anyways. If you look at original brake lever and compare how slim it is compared to the Gilles version its double the bulk but does the same thing.
