    5/8" Brake lever system from Hord........

    Got my new brake lever/cylinder assembly from Hord today.
    If anyone is thinking of doing this, I HIGHLY recommend it.
    Just for have an adjustable lever ALONE it's worth the money.

    I'm sure someone else has covered this but I just wanted to chime in too and say it's indeed awesome!

    Also, big thanks to Hord for the phone call! I'll be placing another order in the near future!
    Now to get better brake pads!

    Adjustable brake lever

    If you just want an adjustable brake lever, you can also get one from a VFR750. These are available new at:

      I'd love to upgrade to this, but my only gripe is that the new mounting still has a threaded mirror mount. I'm hoping to clean up the handle-bar area.. any suggestions on how/what I can use to get rid of the stock-style mirror mounts? Going to bar-end mirrors btw

        Probably a dumb suggestion since I'm no "modifier guru" but, maybe use some JB weld, sand it even and paint? I think it would be barely noticeable then if at all?

        If that's dumb, forgive me. I r new to modifications on bikes.

          You should be able to use the stock master's split clamp on the Nissin 5/8". You can also flip the mirror mount upside down to make it less noticeable.

            Thanks for sharing your experience. Any pics of the installed piece?
