JPR Performance levers

Has anyone used these levers before?

I bought a set the other day and installed them on my 04 GSX-R600. Why I ask, the clutch lever feels a little loose and in my opinion has a bit too much play in it ( up & down ). The brake lever does not have the play. Is this normal on a clutch or maybe something they designed or something wrong?

I have had this freeplay with JPR and CRG clutch levers. It did not affect performance though. Can you shim it with a very thin washer?

Did you take the removable bushing out of the stock one and install it in the new one?

I did not have one... I looked for one as I took it apart.

The bike went down by a previous owner and I have found a few missing bolts and screws...

Asv levers also have a little clutch play... (up and down) and they are the leader in the industry.


Don't let it bother you. It works right?

The bushings are important to have.
Without it your aluminum lever will wear pretty quickly.
I keep them in stock, they're about $5.00.
