xl600r hand control replacements

Recommended Posts

hey gang! getting real tired of my dumb bendy brake lever and would like to replace it. i'm not looking for another oem lever, i'd like one of those neato aluminum shorty ones you see all over the place. specifically something like this, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M5CWGBR/ref=sxr_pa_click_within_right_3?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=3008539542&pf_rd_r=F1HNY7K9DPHZJX9T6Y1P&pd_rd_wg=c1Tbo&pf_rd_s=desktop-rhs-carousels&pf_rd_t=301&pd_rd_w=ZUArC&pf_rd_i=brake+lever+xl600&pd_rd_r=D87B2CP58VBM9SPP2QN0&psc=1

 

 

it doesn't look like something like that exists for the xl600r master cylinder, but is there another bike thats relatively close with a lever i could modify with a dremel? or am i gonna have to find a replacement master cylinder and find a lever to match that one?

Get ASVs and never regret your purchase. Get brand new warrantied sets full price. Or call up their warehouse and get unwarrantied refurbished sets for cheaper.

Red f3s are my suggestion

XR250R levers should fit , but won't work with the stock front brake light switch. You would need a hydraulic switch. I've got a couple of different sets of shorty levers for my XR650L.  One set is MSR and the other , Trackside from Cycle Gear.

I haven't seen shorty levers for the 250L , it's older than the R.

a handful of years of the xr250r as well as the xr400 is the listed application. bolted pretty easily to my xl600. just had to enlarge the brake pivot hold on the brake lever. there is even a little  metal bit thats adjustable that presses the brake switch so i didn't even have to run a hydraulic switch to use my brake light.
