Hi I have read various threads expounding worth of Chinese over known brands. I have no problem with Chinese but understand that some have better design to allow fitment of clutch lever adjustable swivel pin etc.
Any recommendations for levers available to the UK please.

Do they sell Pazzo Racing Levers in the UK? The Chinese knockoffs are better suited to bicycles...

I have Chinesium levers and while good - others have vouched for Pazzo many, many times. My next set will be Pazzo.

My Chinesium levers used to be black but now they are tending towards "worn grey" - there's anodising and then again, there's anodising!

The anodizing on the chinesium set that I put on the Stelvio was a nice, robust, Orange/Gold when installed. Now they look like they were dipped in orange sherbet. They are all loosey goosey as well. When the motivation rises, I will replace them with the Pazzos as are on the GRiSO. My GRiSO Pazzo levers survived a high speed collision with an elk and maybe a couple of "oops, forgot the kickstand." tip overs and remain COMPLETELY UNSCATHED. I've no idea what miracle metal they are made of, most likely are protected by some inviolable spell administered by a comely Italian witch.

Must be the same adamantium alloy used for the GRiSO's bar-end weighs which have survived grinding the road for several meters without a scratch. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Well figured Sunbeam.

Don't forget to loosen the set screw on the clutch side piston before transferring to the new levers. I little butane torch heat can be helpful as well. Keep your inner gorilla in check.

I bought a set of these shorty levers from the source of all things by the source of all things for mine and am fairly impressed with them. The adjusters are especially easy to use and I dialed in the clearance on the clutch lever with my index finger as I rode with them on for the first time.
