hi

i have wr250r and i start looking on levers (clutch and break)
when i saw this and this i contact the site to verify it will fit. but they said that it wont because "The stock perches have the electrical in them which is what makes it difficult".
is he right? what is he talk about?

Assume brake light switch and switch for clutch to allow starting in gear.

How does it affect?
It's just a handle no?

i disassemble the levers and understood what he talked about.

maybe its better off just straight them with an hammer?

straightening them with a hammer can be very tricky. they would most likely break. but you can give it a try if you are careful enough.

I found some aftermarket levers (not made by yamaha) for pretty cheap. about 10 euro each. they fit fine and work just as well. the only thing is it feels like they have a bit looser tolerances, so it feels like their are maybe a 1/2 a mm or 1/4mm too skinny so they have just an ever so slightly free play, but doesn't bother me.

ASV and Zeta both make nice aftermarket "unbreakable" levers that will work as well.

There is always the option of using a universal style lever that comes with it's own clamp. The downside is that you'll have to add a brake pressure switch for the front light to work.

For the clutch switch there are three options if you go with a universal:
1) Just unplug it. You won't be able to start in gear which sucks if you stall sometimes. (What I did for now)
2) Add a bypass switch. The bike can be started in gear if you flip that switch on. (What I want to do soon)
3) Short the wires. The bike will always be able to start in gear so if you bump the starter in gear and the clutch isn't in you may be in for a surprise.

i'll try to fix them tomorrow if they break i'll order motion pro levers, i understand they will fit.
although amazon says they 1 2 will not fit, according to motion pro site - they will.

i dont want a walk around and the asv are expensive to me.

I've been searching for levers for a couple weeks now and cannot find matching sets in anything nice but Zeta. Would like something other than chrome or black. Please keep this page going and I would like to see pics of new levers. Or any other farkles of that sort.

I have been searching for levers also. I ran across these. A quick google search sounded positive.

I straightened my lever in a vice. Small amount of heat and gradual squeeze. Did long time ago after a spill. Been fine.

Motion pro list stock replacement levers in the motovan catalog, the WRR/X is in the street bike listings not the dirt bike tho.
I used motion pro's part numbers to cross reference the levers...
The WRR takes the same brake and clutch levers as the 01-12 tw200, 86-96 yz80 and the ttr250, plus more yamahas if that helps.

Im going to pick up a new clutch lever one of these days to mod, I didnt drill the hole as far as posible from the original hole like I should've when I modded mine in my easy pull clutch for free thread and while its a decent improvment it would be even better with the hole further from the original hole.

PostSubject: Cheap shorty brake lever - and mebbe clutch, too?   Fri Feb 15, 2013 9:58 pm

I don't use a clutch lever any more due to RevLoc (no longer in business) auto clutch. Installed a Magura left hand rear brake in place of the clutch lever. I've grown to love the LHRB and it had a nice shorty type lever. Wanted to match that short Magura lever with a cheap shorty front brake lever.

Looked all over for a cheap 2 or 3 finger shorty front brake lever. Found one finally in eBay that fits though it's not quite as short as the Magura LHRB lever.

For cross-ref, it supposedly fits Yamaha YZ80 YZ125 YZ250 YZ490 TT225 TT350 TT600 XT350 XT600. It took some minor Dremel trimming of a stop bump and some adjustment of the plunger screw but works very well for cheap. The trimming will be obvious and is easy. Fit in perch is no sloppier than stock lever.

Too many replacement levers say "short" but then arrive as the full length lever. Wasted some money on those.

Here's a link to the re-list from same eBay guy I bought from. Looks like there is a shorty clutch lever, too. Unknown if that will fit our bikes or not. Anyone else tried that and can say?

I figure I don't need expensive pivot levers 'cause of the barkbuster's protection and 'cause I don't ride really rough stuff any more.

Anyway, the guy shipped fast, was friendly, etc. Good seller, IMO. Minor trimming for proper fit took about 5 mins & 1 beer.

I bought a lever which was meant to fit the WRR, but it was getting twisted towards the handle bar as you tightened it up. sent it back bought another brand and it fits fine...
