Anyone currently have Gilles Tooling Hand Levers installed? Been thinking about a set and was wanting Pros & Cons.
I do not have Giles but have Oberon Adjustable levers and very happy with them. Looks like they may be slightly cheaper then Giles and have more color options than Giles. Here is a link:
^Sexy stuff — I like the Oberon’s too, but whoah, Gilles is good and slender! Wonder if they’re “snappy”.., or more forgiving.. I wedged mine w/ some pocket-knife spacers and precision was increased!Here is the supplier in the U.S. - Bellissimoto.com
Just type in the bike you have and it will show all parts for that bike. They have both levers.
For what it is worth I have had the Oberons on the XR for 4+ years no problem. There is a company in California that sells them, if you want I can look around and find their name.Just an update on these levers... Gilles does not make them anymore and none on shelf, bummer. I checked with Bellissimoto and Twin Motorcycles, both companies told me the same thing. It seams Oberon's are the only aftermarket ones made for our bike.
Thanks for the heads up Shackman.Big upvote from me for Oberons, particularly as we have a town in the Snowy Mts. here by that name. But mine have been great, very nice to use. Just be aware of the risk of damaging the little plastic switch inside the R switchblock, which actuates the rear brake light, when you have the lever out. It's easily done.
roadrash, if it's not a problem, I'd like to know that company in Cali. The only one I know is Bellissimoto in Vegas. I originally was going to get the Oberons until I seen the Gilles. Both look like very good levers.For what it is worth I have had the Oberons on the XR for 4+ years no problem.
