I was thinking today that once I get the custom handlebar and install it...the stock clutch/brake assembly will look absolute pants on it.

Did you see/hear/found any place that does/sells custom ones? And I don't mean just the levers...everything.

It's a strange one though...is it just the angle or is the fluid level window bang on in the way of handlebar so once installed you'll see just part of it.

I also can't work out if it's far out enough (the cylinder) to accommodate bar increase from 1" to 1,25"

Anyone with eyes not as tired as mine? :)

Hmmmm 1.25" I'd forgot your bars are thicker than stock    Probably best doing a HD search for them then, More options with 1.25" bars.

no no, you were right....switchgear area is 1" thick... it will extend though to 1,25 just after clutch/brake mounts.

I wouldn't worry about how visible the window is. The only time I look at mine is while servicing the bike to ensure it is OK, other than that I never deliberately look at it. I am sure it will be suitable for the bike & the possible viewable angle that you may need to easily see the fluid level should not put you off.

I'd agree with you Dave as over the years I've noticed quite a few viewing windows on the master cylinder that are obscured by the bars etc but if you look carefully you can get a good idea of the level of fluid is when the bike is on the stand/sidestand.

Looking at the pictures though Marcin & considering pacifically the viewing window.  Even with the fractionally wider circumference beyond the grips area of your intended apes, you should still have an acceptable view of the window.

top it up with chrome switch housings are it looks business..

cash stacks up though so what I will also do is enquire locally how much it would cost to get the set I got chrome plated....might work out much cheaper.. just thinking outside the box a bit.

Be careful if ordering these.... specially from china... their "standard" post offers no tracking and takes months.  I ordered a hazard button from there and they were shipped with free shipping... Ordered it back in October and still haven't received it.  Contacted seller and was told that they would send a second and if I wanted it tracked that I would have to pay an extra $6 USD (for a $3.00 USD button)

I know there are some examples to be had of people receiving cheap items from china that they have been happy with. My personal experience is not good, I paid the cash and received nothing, not even communication. I will not order from any Chinese supplier again, that does mean I would not buy Chinese items from UK suppliers.

Oh definitely, not trashing the productivity of the Chinese or the pricing... in fact I find that most items for Suzuki's are mainly from there... it's only the shipping and consumer relations they have that I don't agree with...

I Agree with you Mr. Intruder... if I'm able to find a seller for the same item (& price) from either the America's or UK (always have had good dealing with you guys specially with my kilt gear) then I'm game... considering I get a tracking number that works lol..

One way of getting an idea of there worth or not is to check there feedback as a seller and see how much of it is from english speaking people. Dont mean you will actually get it but gives you an idea of their trustworthiness as a seller. don't mean a lot but worth a look. Also check all there bad feedbacks
