  • Black or Carbon Fiber Brake and Clutch Levers for TLS?

    I'd like to pick up some black or carbon fiber clutch and brake levers for my TLS. Does anyone know if anyone makes them? LP makes them for the TL but only the clutch is available in CF. Does anybody else make them for the TLS in color?

    Also, does anyone know if the TLS uses the same levers from the TLR?

    Thanks,
    Frank

      Black levers are almost impossible to find so good luck and let me know if you find them. I think SDTLR will be interested if you find them as well.

        Powder coat them for black, won't rub off like paint might.

          I think the brake levers are the same:dunno

          The clutch is definately different.

          If you find a TLR clutch lever in black I will give you $50 for it

          I have been searching for months

                  If I take my lever off to get it P/C or anodized I won't be able to ride the bike to the shop

                    Ah you gotta do what I did. Get hit by a car so you can have the parts painted while the bike is in the shop!

                      Oh man, I've been meaning to ask about this! I've heard about shorter clutch and brake levers before and that they are used by racers because they don't get as damaged when you crash. Does anyone have any info on them? If you can find that URL, that would be great.

                      Thanks,

                          another thing you can do to keep the whole lever from getting snapped off in a crash is to measure from the end the minimum amount of lever you can ride with and drill a hole in it. this will cause a weaker spot that is plenty strong enough to ride with and in a crash the lever will break at that spot.

                          2000 tillis plus stuff with some polished stuff and some carbon fiber stuff and a little bit of tlr stuff and some gsxr stuff

                            I found a site a while back on how to Anodize parts at home....

                            take this for what its worth, i've not done it or seen it... so i'm not vouching for it...

                            ... if anyone does try it, I'd love to hear (see) how it worked....
