Aftermarket levers

Does anyone have experience with the MZS brake and clutch levers?

1. The kid in the video didn't lube the pivot bolts.
2. The new levers do not have the hard bushings in the lever pivot points to prevent wear over time.
3. The shorter levers make it "more difficult" less leverage rather than "easier" to actuate the clutch and brake both.

I went with ebay cheapo shorties 3 years ago....no issues yet @ 10K a year. The lack of hard bushings is a good point, but if these fail, I will just toss them and buy another set.....I think they were $25.

Where did you find them; or, better yet, can you provide a link. No matter how hard I search I can't seem to find them to fit a 2017XT. Additionally, I would prefer regular length rather than shorty; however, I will take what I can find. Thanks in advance.
