just wondering if anyone knows a retailer online that sells the red ones? I have a set of blue ones and after flaming out my 2WJ fairings with airbrush... thought red would look better with them.

I don't know the answer to your question, but I do know that you should NOT get them from Lockhart Phillips.

I know, that should be common knowledge, but I bought a pair of blue anodized levers from somebody on the board who purchased them but never installed them. I put them on last weekend, and the VERY FIRST time I test-loaded the front brake lever, it absolutely shattered at the pivot. Little lever bits went shooting across my garage floor, and I didn't pull it very hard at all. Thankfully, the bike was on a stand in a garage and not behind a semi on the highway. Naturally, the clutch lever came right back off, and the old silver stubbies went back on.

I suppose Lockhart Phillips is like the Radioshack of the motorcycle world ... don't ever buy anything critical there.

cool... thanks for the tips

the blue ones I have I think are LP... I do agree LP stuff tends to be lacking in quality most of the time but these levers haven't given me any trouble so far. I have had some C/F models too and I have found that none of the aftermarket levers seem to built as good as OEM except maybe the roll-a-clicks which are outrageous in price

davids levers are of excellent quality. they are designed directly after OEM specs and the fitment is perfect.

whatever you get, really make sure to lube the pivot point. any lever you get could easily snap if you don't. i agree, the lockharts aren't great but i've had several and had no problems, nor has anyone i know until now. it couldn't hurt to find a better brand though, just in case.
