and bent my clutch lever. I ordered a new set of levers and installed them before my debris deflectors arrived...went to put the debris deflector on the clutch side and the clutch lever is too long..here's my question: what are some good options as far as lever brands and models that have shorter clutch levers that will fit inside and be protected by my handguards. Thanks

Right there ^ didn't let me post the whole questions..must be because I'm on the mobile site?

Ahh got it! I would look at Midwest Mountain Engineering. Pretty amazing little levers. Especially clutch side, which reduces the feel of pull by a bit.

Those are the most often recommended levers I've seen around these parts.

I use the MME lever mentioned above. But I didn't have a problem with my stock levers clearing my brushguards. Have you tried loosening the lever mount and moving it on the bars?

Thanks roboto! And trailryder- yes I tried that but the stock bars start to taper pretty quickly on the 2016. The spot the lever mount is in is really the optimal spot. I tried moving it last night and it sorta worked but the lever was angled weird and it struck my ocd nerve. I'd honestly rather just get a new lever anyway

I have the EE hand guards on 3 KTMs and there's always a compromise position you can get everything to allow the stock levers to work. Adjusting the levers in closer to the bars helps and I often run the guards tilted down some for when you lay it down.. 

 

Don't always have to buy stuff to get the perfect setup... That said, I have the MME levers on my 250xcw and love them They have a longer travel which is how they get the lighter pull.. You have to pull the clutch all the way to the bars to fully disengage. Lots of stalls till I got them setup right.. Some folks don't like them... more difference from stock than just being shorter..

If the lever is 1/2 inch or thereabouts too long, I've always cut off the end and used a grinder to smooth the rough part....Then they fit within whatever protection system you're using.

If the kill switch is to the right of the clutch master cylinder, swap positions of the clutch mc and the kill switch. If that is your orientation, then moving them is free...

it's the other way around. And the lever was significantly longer which made just sliding the clutch assembly over and calling it a day easier said then done as I mentioned in a previous reply. However, I was able to make some adjustments and make it work

I see you already got it working... But I'm from MD too so I just say some bullsh*t to introduce myself. 

 

I'm cheap and I've always just cut the stockes to fit. Where do you ride? I'm north east of the hell hole.

Late post here but I like the idea of It all. I'm to from Maryland, Harford county to be exact. Just got back into riding myself after about 6 years and I'm looking for some local places to ride. Even if it's a personal property that allows it and even if it require a year fee of some sort. Have any ideas on this? I'm going to submit a that survey and what not to the Dnr if that's still open to do so from your links myself when I'm home on my pc.

If you find anything "local", less then 1.5-2.0 hrs away let us know. Unless it's a hush-hush super secret nobody rides here but me and my brother kinda place.

 

Shade mountain(free), just north of Harrisburg, is a good place. Rocking but good. They close often though so check the PATRA web site before heading out.. About 1.5hrs from 695-83N.

Motocove aka The Cove also rocky but good. I think it's still $25 a day. Outside of Gore VA. About 1.5 from 695-83N.

Breezewood Proving grounds is a good track. I take my kid there often. He loves it. Good people good tracks. It's south of Breezewood Pa about 2.5-3hrs from 695-83N. Camping-primative to RV and cabins...makes a good father son weekend.

RAC..Reading Anthracite Company. I love this place but it take 2.5-3 from 695-83N. It's been a few years since I've been, I think it was $150 for a 1 year permit. Seamingly never ending amount of trails. from mining roads to tight single track.

The Maryland Trail Committee is working hard with the DNR to open trails in western MD. Hopefully the plan works and the trails open soon.

sorry for the high-jack.....none of this has to do with a clutch lever.
