Shorty brake/clutch levers for 701E
« on: September 04, 2019, 02:56:58 pm »
Anyone know where I can get hold of set of shorty levers for a 701 E? Will 690 short levers fit?

We have KTM 690 2-finger levers in stock, we rang Eddy2Race (Cape Husky Dealership) and they said clutch and brake perch are identical between 690 and 701, so we are sure they WILL fit.


Ours are 6-way adjustable for REACH, and then 2- OR 3-finger adjustable, too.
Silver with a bit of orange, no BLUE available!

Just buy the KTM clutch shorty lever  - the Brembo brake lever is already short. Anything shorter and you will struggle to get fingers to it!  Part # 50302031300
Most other aftermarket lever give shit with the micro switch clearances etc. This one is genuine Magura.

Comparison.

I found that on the 1150 on the first few rides with shorty levers, but your fingers soon adapt.  8) :biggrin:

This works on the 1X90's as well.  Super cheap alternative to the expensive shorties out there.
