    Those brake and clutch numbers are "universal" as they refer to a "type" of lever. Don't get them reversed!! K25 Clutch and DK12 Brake.

    I believe so Ken they are clever guys at Hitchcocks and have some exciting developments in the pipeline.

    Very comprehensive write-up AZGSA. Any difference in the way the bike runs or performs? I hate all that extra wiring and plumbing.

    I can report that after removing the evap canister the bike ran exactly the same. No improvement ( apart from the improved power to weight ratio:wink:) , nothing bad. Next is the air pump.
    Got to try and balance out the weight of the added Farkles!

    No difference noticed but I've only ridden it around the block a few times since making changes, just to make sure there weren't any issues. I don't expect any performance changes, especially from the EVAP system removal, but I've read about minor performance changes for air injection removal. The Hitchcocks page for their air injection delete kit says "This kit reduces exhaust popping on deceleration and backfiring typically associated with aftermarket exhausts. It also helps achieve true air/fuel ratio for fuel mixture tuning..."
    My primary reason for removal of this stuff is to reduce clutter and eliminate potential problem issues associated with a component/hose failure etc.

    No worries my friend : )
    I was not trying to imply anything weird; just found it kinda of comical to see it in the picture w bike.

    Thx again for helping me with the adjustable levers.

    I looked on eBay and Amazon; they only seem to sell them as sets. So if I get set that fits KTM 390; or set that fits Ninja 250/300 will that work? Or do I need to purchase each one separately?

    Thx

    I had to buy a set of both and toss what I didn't need but that goes along with being the early adopter. The vendors have had to have sold enough of them for the Himalayan by now that contacting them and telling 'em you'd like one of each should work. Don't forget that you've got options depending on who you buy from. Long, short, angle adjustable ( like booatnuts levers ) colors, two tone etc.

    Thanks That's what I figured; that's why I asked again to be sure.

    I'm looking for Adjustable/Extendable; maybe even folding.

    Thx

    So no obvious differences in performance, have measured fuel consumption?

    And, has it triggered the “check engine light”?

    I bought a similar pair from Amazon for about $15.

    It took 20 or 30 minutes to install them. I used a 14mm wrench on the nut that secures the mirror. I used a 6mm Allen wrench to secure the riser bolt to the mirror mount on the handlebar.

    While I had the toolkit out, I measured all of the Allen bolts I could find without taking the bike apart. I added that information to the wrench list I started in post #5951.

    As Mr Mudd commented, I specified to the seller what I would like, as in a "mix" of lever types. Admittedly they got it wrong first time. Sent me a brake lever for a cable type. Convinced if you send a message to seller PRIOR to ordering, laying out exactly what you need... DK12 brake hydraulic type "horn", K25 clutch ,cable type "horn". Horn refers to the part of the lever that has the pivot bolt go through it... The actual lever itself is somewhat universal.
