Anyone fitted new Clutch/Bake levers?

I've seen some gold alloy ones that would look proper Ally but obviously its more important that;

1. they fit the bars
2. they work!

Also, my bike failed the MOT Cos the brake lever touches the h/Bar. I'll be over the handlebars before that happens, so i think maybe I just need 'Dog leg' type levers?

I didn't know what year your ZX is so I had to give you the general area.

There are many color choices (gold too). You can pick the colors of the levers, colors of the adjusters, and the length of the levers (long or short). You can even mix/match colors and/or lengths if you so choose.

If you have any further questions, let me know =-)

OP.... if you still have OEM brake lines on the bike, they have probably degraded and are expanding too much when the lever is squeezed to the maximum. Jacketed lines reduce that flexation to near xero, and effectively don't wear out. Once done, you never have to do it again.

Different levers won't help, if the problem is the lines. Old brake fluid will also compress more than fresh fluid will..... if there is any air at all in the lines, that will also cause issues.

Give the brakes a proper service, and see if the lever travel is still unacceptable.
