I was wondering if any of you guys are running CRG brake and clutch levers on your 954? I thought I read that some of you guys are running them, but I did a search and I couldn't get anything on them.

I called Dan Kyle to order the levers and he said that they only carried the brake lever and not the clutch lever for the 954. Sounds weird to me??? The thought of only running one side would freak me out. It would bug me to no end to have two different levers!!! Maybe it's just me?

Would the 929 levers work on the 954? Thanks for any help you can give me.

I'm running CRG levers on the RC, no problems. We had to add some magnetic tape to trip the switch (so it can start with the clutch pulled in), other than that they are a great improvement over stock.

I've got em on the 929, both sides. Love them though they are a penny. I had bought the clutch side from AZMotorsports originally but they were a sh**ty place to deal with. I bought the clutch side to help with lack of strength in the left hand after smashing it up from a wreck. That and the clutch lever was gone anyway.

Some time ago I smashed up my right hand and considered it a good excuse to get the brake side from DK.

Both fit great. Drop right in. No wrangling or shims. I called CRG (831-763-7811) to find out who else carries their controls and they refered me to DK for the brake side. They were helpful. LP probably still carries both levers as well though DK was cheaper and a better and faster company to deal with.

Well, after calling CRG and a few other place, it looks like I might have solved my problem. It looks like I'm going to change out the mounting bracket on my 954 to the 929 bracket. So, i'll be running the 954 brake levers and 929 clutch lever, since CRG doesn't make a 954 clutch lever.

:huh: Don't these bikes (RC and 954) share this hardware?

The RC has a hydraulic clutch with a master cylinder built into the lever, so no they don't share the same hardware . . .

Yup. That probably means also, that the current RC CRG levers should fit/swap with the new CBR1k's levers :highclap:

I stole this of another site;

The miniature “clicker” lever controls a roller cam assembly, giving riders the ability to manipulate between 6 different lever positions while riding. Brake fade and clutch adjustments can be tuned in with the flick of a finger. Constructed from CNC machined, solid billet aluminum, sealed bearings, and stainless steel hardware making them stronger then stock units.

I also heard they give you a better feedback, setup to give more leverage with less force (IE: one finger braking) and positioned better.

They also raise you and your bike's "Bling" factor! :highclap: :highclap: :highclap: :highclap: Another reason is I still have to spend some raffle money.

I remember a couple of years ago wanting a pair so bad. I saw them on an RSV R up at Alices Restaurant. I grilled the guy all about them and ended up getting CRG's number from him. At that point they didn't make a set for the 929 and they told me they didn't know if they were gonna. I persistantly contacted them and finally not to long ago they became available.
I got a grey set for my Erion. Surprising how many people notice them and stop and ask me about them. Awesome quality and very adjustable, well worth the pretty penny I dropped.

Throttlemeisters are awesome. My dad has a bunch of those on mosy of his BMW's and they work great. He just ordered the small polished ones for his Mille R too. A def mod once my broke student a$$ gets some money. They work great on long rides, especially taking the preasure off your throttle hand.

I'm also considering this mod as well....

Anyone know if the 600RR shares the same clutch lever as the 54?

Also, anyone using the stubby clutch? or does everyone just use the standard break-away version.

TIA!

I'm using the stubby clutch and brake levers. I installed the brake lever and the feel is much improved. The new lever has a little more leverage, so less effort is needed.

I'm still waiting on my 929 clutch lever perch to get to the house. I'll post pictures, when I get the perch and install the lever.
