Good aftermarket levers? FOUND THEM!
Seems hard to find good after market levers for 2013's.
I have a fondness for quality levers, so please no suggestions of cheap ebay Chinese stuff.
I like ASV, LSL, Pazzo and other high end levers.
(Brake is no problem as the same brake lever is used all over the place)
So. I had ASV's in my parts bins and put them on. Problem is the adjuster wheel hits the left switch housing. So that makes it bad for tripping the safety switch and you can't pull the lever in as far - an issue if you have small hands like me.
LSL: Love them on my GS500's except I have to order direct from Germany. The LSL distributor in the USA does not carry any Suzuki LSL levers.
What is odd is I find the 12-13 have the same part number for the clutch lever. However, come companies list 11-12 for a clutch lever. 2011 shows a different part number for the lever. However the diagrams show the same configuration and clutch switch below the lever.
(There is no 2010in the Suzuki lists.)
2009 shows the earlier style switch.
What is compatibility for 2013? Is 2011-2012 the same as 2013? If so, then I can ignore the lack of 2013 and order 2011 or 2012.
Some companies list 2004-2011 then 2012+.
Some show 2010+
Some show 2011-2012 and nothing newer. (Pazzo is this way and I like the Pazzo as they look like LSL levers)
Being a 3 day owner of a DL650, I appreciate some help. Is there a lever compatibility chart that cross references levers with years, models and brands? We have one for GS500's which is how I know of all the brake lever compatibility and lack of for the GS500 clutch lever.
FYI: I'm quite versed in the GS500 and am aware of model differences. Where many parts are compatible across the years, parts lists often break them into small blocks of years due to model differences. I'm assuming the same here with the DL650. It appears that 2011-2012 is the same as 2013 for the clutch lever.
I do see some different part numbers for brake levers, but know that all fit the same. Different part numbers based on finish? Aluminum or chrome or black or? And the same brake lever as GS500's, many Kawasaki's and Honda's.
