Well, the tall side stand finally bit me tonight. The asphalt was a bit higher to the left of the bike and of course the stand scrubbed the ground and didn't lock into the forward position. Down she went. :eek: Aside from my pride and the clutch lever, nothing seems seriously damaged. I'll check the fairings tomorrow when I have more light.

So I'm in the market for a replacement lever. For those of you in Europe, what do you recommend? Is the RacingBike brand from Italy any good?

Looks identical to these exept the extremely marked up price:

When you install the aftermarket clutch lever, there is a high probability that you will not be able to start the bike while in gear. You just need to adjust the "clip" that allows the bike to start in gear. I hope someone can explain this better.

Thanks for the heads-up. My bike struggles to start in gear even with the factory lever properly adjusted. I'll look into this.

I picked up the Chinese levers from Ebay for only 32 EUR shipped. I have to say, they're beautiful. There were some minor imperfections in machining, which I fully expected, but nothing major. I did clean a few burrs out of the inside of the clutch lever which could have potentially caused wear on the clutch cable, and I needed to adjust the location of the left mirror/lever mount to give enough clearance for full lever travel. But overall, I'm impressed.

Setting 4 feels about the same as the factory levers, and no need to adjust anything else for proper clutch and brake function.
