Morning all.
About to buy some Chinese brake and clutch levers for my 2019 Tuono and don’t want to disturb any sensors associated with the levers such as cruise Control. Am I likely to run into difficulties just changing the levers?
cheers and hello, by the way.

I bought those for my 2014 Tuono. Not sure about the cruise control but no issues with changing the levers. It might be slightly loose but no problem in operation.

Great. Thank you. I’ll get long ones. Shortys gave me endless trouble until giving up when fitted to my RSV1000

Just my 2 pence worth , but i would not fit cheap chinese levers to any bike of mine ! , they are not called cheap chinese levers for nowt !!!! .
they may look good but is the metal of good enough quality ?
im not a bike snob by any means ,but you buy a a 10 grand bike and put 10 quid levers on it , dont make sense to me .
do your self a favor and buy ASV,s , they are pricey but they are of peerless quality and the adjustment possibilites goes on for ever with 100 clicks of adjustment on each lever , and are supposed to be crash proof and have a life time warranty .
no i dont have a vested interest in ASV !! . i just wont buy rubbish , but each to their own !!

Quite right. It seems wrong to spend so much on a bike and save on a ha’porth of brake lever. Having said that it’s hard to get out of the cheap bazzer mindset if a lever that seems to be just as good is available for cheap. Having said THAT I’ve ended up spending extra by sending back cheap Chinese stuff that doesn’t fit!
Thank you all.

That sucks, but in the end you avoided a cheap one.
