Lsl type brake clutch levers from china to fit tbs

On ebay there is lsl looking brake and cluch levers, for triumphs allso. But if you write thunderbird there is none. So does anyone know wich brake or clutch levers would fit on thunderbird sport, or the regular tb 900?

The brake lever will fit, the other is designed to take a cable. There are several manufacturers (on Ebay) in China making good quality units, but none that I know off fit Triumphs with hydraulic clutch's.

You can always get levers for a Kawasaki Ninja ZX7, ZX9, ZX11, etc, as they fit. The clutch lever has to be slightly ground down (flattened) on one side, but it is pretty simple.

I bought a set of black anodized ZX11 levers from China. They fit and looked good, but the black fadded after a few months. Now they area light pink/gold color.

Guess you get what you pay for-

Yea best way to find a pair on ebay is to find ones that fit those kawasaki models.

I bought the china ones too. they had a little wiggle to them, and after a few months the color is a bit faded, but I'd say it's way better than spending $100+ on levers.

I've got a set of black ones that seem to be holding up. They certainly haven't faded, yet.
