    Default Slim clutch lever assemblies?

    Wondering if anyone could point me towards some decent clutch lever assemblies that fit the standard clutch lever on newer sporties, this one happens to be a 2014. Happy to lightly modify anything to work. I don't need it to look purdy and I won't pay much haha. If it's too expensive I'll just shave mine down, I just think they still look bulky even when chopped up.

    I've seen various drag specialties ones for ironheads. How long have they used this same clutch cable fitting? My '97 and this '14 are both the same fitting, wondering if old ironheads are the same. here's one:

    I’ve got that exact one I’m pretty sure on my 02. There’s a thread somewhere on how to make these work with the Evos. Pretty much just shaving a little off the perch and buying a big pin to hold cable in. Click image for larger version.

    Rad thanks! Like a big snap ring pin since it needs to grab on both sides?

    Yeah there's so much useful knowledge buried on here, but most are missing all the pics.

    oh man thanks for this! I searched google for a chrome plugin and found one in a few mins, now I can see all the pics in those threads. Much appreciated.

    @ nickey - I got one of those levers and the clamp aluminum snapped during install... not sure if I got a defective one or not. Might end up just shaving down my stock one... not sure I trust another one of these if they can break that easy.

    That sucks man. Yea they’re cheap for sure. I haven’t had problems with mine tho. I’ve thought about shaving the stock ones down as well. Thought about putting my front brake back on and be able to have matching controls.

    Yeah, I just hate that huge master cylinder reservoir. I can make my stock clutch assembly look at lot like the sport bike MC I put on if I just shave it right.

    The four speed lever/perch don't have quite as much "throw" as the five speed setup...
    Keep this in mind when choosing grips.
    Fat grips or wide grip collars can interfere with lever travel
    Giving less release travel at the clutch pressure plate...
    Notch the grip if needed

    Also check the how to pages.
    Many 7/8" perches can be made to work with 1" bars and Harley cables...
    Same goes for master cylinders
    Just make sure you get the correct bore size to match your caliper(s)

    I've got a 14mm MC I made into a mini, just trying to find something slim for the clutch now. I don't run bulky grips, I like flat thin ones. Maybe I just need to find a 7/8 assembly to modify. The MC I got was 7/8, was easy to modify even with basic tools. Just took a little while.
