Replacement levers and bar risers

2608 Views 19 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Panchopalmera
I want to add better levers for brake and clutch (shorter and pivoting). has anyone upgraded to a lever they like? I see OEM Husqvarna and there are cheap sets from China.
The same question for bar risers, anyone install a set they like?
Barkbusters are also on my list but most sites are out of stock for the Norden / KTM 890.

I am anticipating dropping the bike sooner or later due to my 30" inseam

Thanks

My dealer had Husqvarna OEM bar risers in stock, they were $39 installed... Raised the bars about an inch, it's much nicer standing now.
I used to have V-Trec Saftey levers on my last bike (V-Trec Motorrad Bremshebel & Kupplungshebel) and really liked them.

Sadly they don't have any for the Norden yet...
Here are the Barkbusters I put on mine. I also installed Pro Taper adventure bars (higher rise than stock) and 1" bar risers also...I'm 6'2". For me not its perfect.

Are those the ones from Husqvarna? Any problem getting them?

Thank you fellow riders for your input and help.

They are Cycra Pro Bend handguards. I just bought the set with white plastic defectors (think from Slavens) and pealed off the decals and put on the Husqvarna decals. Got the the Husky decals from AOMC.com for $7. They are specifically made for Cycra defectors so they went on perfectly.

Hi,
once you use these it's difficult to go back to long levers.

Did you go with the "ADV Bend" or "ADV High Bend" on the bars?

What brand are those? I like the length, especially for the brake.

Stay away from the cheap Chinese levers. I work in a bike shop and they cause nothing but problems. Good quality levers are worth the money.

The cheap Chinese levers are the ones from ALI Express on eBay. My buddy with an 890 got set and the fit is lousy. The [email protected] levers look great and I'm ordering a set.
The OP mentioned them in the first post. Was not referencing the [email protected]

You will not be sorry.

Standard ADV bend. I have the high on another bike (old R100GSPD) and they are very high. Would be too high for the Norden.

Awesome, thanks for getting back to my question! The high ones look VERY high in the pictures. I'll get the regular ones coming!
