Clutch/brake Levers

I have relatively small hands and find the R1200R stock clutch lever to be somewhat uncomfortable in stop-n-go traffic even in the closest position. Has anyone switched out the clutch/brake levers on the R1200R, and is it difficult or are they "drop-ins?"

Pricey,but you might want to consider these Wunderlich units. Never have used them myself, just an option. I have the Wunderlich peg lowering kit and it is nicely made though.

Re: Clutch/brake Levers

I had the same issue n my Tiger 1050. Many will cringe at this but I bought levers made in China on Ebay. I was very pleased with them and the price was right. The brake dropped in since it was hydraulic but the clutch was cable still no problems. Look up levers r1200r and there are some available and the price is right. I would get another set but the stockers on my RT are fine for me.
