    Not that I have seen. I have talked to many of the companies in India and China that make most of the aftermarket adjustable levers for the newer bikes and they all say if I want to have 100'a made they can do it.

    It would be great! I thought it was a gadget, but now that I have arm/hand problem on the right.... I have installed some on most of my bikes: it changes life!!

    OK guys. It looks like the adapter tips for crg levers may be a GO!!
    Today I learned of a machine shop with a CNC which be able to do the trick!

    I need to learn how many of you might be interested. Plus this will take a couple of months but will be ready for spring in the northern hemisphere.

    I think so. My goal is to use a crg lever set on a stock 1981 BMW r80g/s brake and clutch perch.
    Maybe we need more historical knowledge to chime in about what other airheads this might apply to.

    Nothing welded yet. The brake will be first. The plan is to weld a portion of an original to a crg then copy it.
