Replacement brake/clutch lever

Has anyone modified their brake and clutch levers to an aftermarket lever that is either carbon fiber or matching the color of their bike? I doubt this would bring any type of performance upgrade but looking to modify a few small things that would differentiate my bike a bit.

Not toooo much of an issue as I seem to have the only Strato Blue Metallic G310R in southwest Virginia/northern North Carolina. I still have not seen another on the road.

Be careful with those cheap Hong Kong levers - they have been known to fall apart which is just what you need when braking hard!

I deeply checked the material, the overall sampling, the assembly, and didn't noticed any weaknesses. Now time will tell...

My pix are not awesome like dejah’s, but just got some myself from Ebay, from China.

They look and feel better than the cheap stock levers for sure. Oh, and $22.00 for the pair delivered!

Seller was RZMMOTOR

Are these compatible with the GS, listing says it's for the R and I don't know if the levers are the same on the GS and R.

Yes, both the R and GS models share the same brake and clutch lever assemblies.

Took the short version, since I'm used to short levers while mtbiking, and because of the barkbusters cage also. By the way, short lever length is equal to the "safety cut" on OEM levers.
