I recently purchased a set of JPR Performance levers for my 2008 Triumph Bonneville. I first saw them and ordered the black and red model online from New Bonneville. The reason I was interested in this upgrade was that the standard OEM 4-level adjustment Triumph levers did not give me the range necessary to adjust the clutch as close as I like to have it. I personally don’t like to have much play between releasing the clutch lever from all the way in against the hand grip, to the point at which it starts to engage. The JPR’s touted the ability to adjust this in 6 levels.
The levers arrived in a nice looking package with easy and straightforward printed instructions inside. I started with the right brake lever, which took me about 10 minutes to replace. I moved to the left clutch lever which was a bit more complicated, but it also was done in about 15 minutes. Any Bonneville owner can make this modification with a few simple tools.
I’ve been very happy with the feel of these levers. The biggest change is that they are shorter than the OEM levers, so that using 2 or 3 fingers is actually the most comfortable. This is actually an advantage in that it will be less likely to lock up the brakes especially with 2-3 fingers when compared to using all four.
I am very pleased with this product. The Red/black color scheme goes well with my Bonneville Black and I like how close I am able to adjust the clutch lever to engage upon release. The feeling seems much safer to me not to have that longer time waiting for it to engage, especially during turns and corners.
