Break away clutch & break levers???

Postby beeds3000 » 09:03 pm Dec 05 2006

I was just wondering if anyone was familiar with these and if they are worth it, me and and my buddies I ride with tend to lay our bike over alot trying to do slow wheelies and stuff. if so what is a good websight to get them from cheap ?

I second barkbusters....I also put Teflon plumber's tape around the bar underneath the perches. Then I tighten the clamps till it is fairly hard to twist the perches, but are still allowed to rotate. That way they rotate when hit hard and you can rotate them back without too much effort. And your bars don't get scratched up.

Poorman's break-aways FTW!

If you're talking about ASV levers, I sure got the hankering to strap on a set. Serious bling factor. They gotta be worth at least a horsepower or two. :grin:

i have asv f3 levers- i have only fallen off a couple of times with them...one advantage is that you can adjust the reach i set mine furter away from the bars so the levers do there job before they hit my fingers :grin:

I have an ASV clutch lever on mike KDX. I like the adjustability the most, I picked mine up on that auction site refurbished from the factory.
I have to say that the barkbusters have saved my levers more than anything else!
