    LEVER Would BSA Style Blade levers fit on MY 78????

    Yo everyone... been a while since I've been on hear but looking to do some more mods.. currently doing a stator change/rewire but also cleaning up the look of the controls which leads me to these little beauts

    Classic british motorcycle brake and clutch levers doherty blade type with pins | eBay

    just wandered if they would work/fit or maybe someone has seen something similar??

    Plus saw shep had posted this MC in a different post

    Honda CX 500 A 79-80 Front Brake Master Cylinder Parts at Wemoto - The UK's No.1 On-Line Motorcycle Parts Retailer

    there anywhere else I could get this/similar from as they're out of stock and again could/would it work with the above levers

    Cheers

    I don't know about those levers on a Honda,the brake light switch may not work. Here are some brake master cylinders to look at .Honda Motorcycle Brake Parts. I rebuilt mine with a Honda rebuild kit from here over a year ago because it leaked, still fixed, this one might work. Honda 45530-404-315 - MASTER CYLINDER SET : CyclePartsNation Honda Parts Nation

    Careful with swapping in levers. Sometimes they will fit {or be made to fit} but will pull the cable at the wrong angle dragging it across part of the lever housing causing it to snap.

    I had this happen with a generic clutch lever that was fitted to my GSX 250 when I bought it. It was a new lever and cable but the cable snapped about a month after I got the bike.

    On comparison to a genuine Suzi lever the difference and reason was obvious.
