Brake and Clutch Levers

I'm just looking at making the first modifications to the bike and I'm thinking that removing the warning stickers will be done today.

More importantly, do any of you know where would be the best place to get some black (preferably) clutch and brake levers.

I'm trying to get rid of some of the silver accessories...including the wheels (possibly, if I don't feel the need to upgrade before the time comes.

Many thanks!!!

Had all the silver parts on mine powder coated and they still look good.

Good idea...how much is powder coating for something so small?

Thanks

When I'm riding, I think to myself 'I'm the guy that I always used to think looks cool'.

I got mine from here:

Adjustable Levers - Aftermarket Parts for 2011 - 2012 Honda CBR250R

I like them, good quality, a bit stiff at first but look a lot better than stock and i believe they have better feel and the friction point of the clutch is less far out fro the bars, i.e. it activates earlier than the stock levers

For just the Levers? I am not sure, but I got the lever, rearsets (pegs), muffler heatshield, and wheels for around $650 or so with labor and parts included. The wheels need new bearings upon removing the old ones for the coating process. The levers them selves should be way cheaper especially if you take them off yourself and take them to the powder coating shop.
