Aftermarket brake reservoir and perch & levers

Recently my bike was dropped, not by me. But I'm looking to get new levers, brake reservoir and perch. I'm wondering what all are you guys running. I'm still fairly new to riding but I've seen a lot of brake & clutch levers that are extendable and some that fold. Also I've seen a lot of universal brake reservoirs. I'm not looking to stay oe and best bank for my buck is a big concern. If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be amazing thank you.

right well there are hundreds of levers and kit out there. but not all have the switches fitted that the bike needs some can be modified to suit but you would really need a matched pair or the bike will feel funny to ride with odd levers. the main issue is the two way switch on the clutch lever.


I don't have any recommendations on which ones suit best as I have never used them. I did look for some for a project but in the end went with stock to avoid all the hassle.

Ya that's the issue I'm running into actually, because I don't want to spend 250 on levers that won't work so that's why I'm reaching out trying to see if anyone else has something similar that they are doing or have done. But thank you

well for the adjustable levers I spent 30$ on ebay and got an awesome set. For the brake reservoir I haven't had issues. but I'm sure you could make the stock switches work on a new master.
