Rideit levers installed

Well I don't really ever like the factory levers on my bikes. So when I realized my strom's clutch engagement was basically all front loaded I decided to try new levers.

I was really close to going Pazzo or Asv but decided to try the Rideit levers and save at least $200.

I am impressed. Solid. Smooth. Solid. Really nice looking and have I mentioned solid? I was expecting a ton of flop for $50 but nope. These fit and feel awesome!

Pics in profile album. I can't seem to post pics from iPhone ?

2015 DL 1000.
Some goodies. Never finished!
Exhaust modded, SW bars, bash plate and Trax bags.
Oxford grips, Puig touring dark smoke, Rideit machined levers, Gofast stickers

I paid $135 for my folding pazzo levers. It think it would be difficult to save $200 on that.

Post your pics on photobucket or similar, and then copy the IMG link into your post above.

I see you got the ones with the sliding bit, I tried a set of those, they were ok for a while but then the slider started getting loose and it would keep sliding out even though I didn't want it to. I liked the short levers, so just bought a set like that. Maybe yours will fare better.

Make sure the bike won't start if the clutch lever is left out. The RideIt lever on my Wee wouldn't engage the clutch switch at one setting.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

I'll watch for the slide. As for fit they're perfect.
