Problem with fitting cnc retail brake lever

Hello,
I've recently bought a brake lever from China. It frels like good quality and the clutch lever fits. But, the brake lever seem to be a little tight, so when I have screwed the bolt in, it seems like its pressing the brake nut a little when in normal position. This causes the bike to start braking more and more after driving a couple of hundred meters. And then its on full brake and I must stop and taket It off to losen it. Anyone experienced the same problem? How can I get it to fit?

It does not sound like you are going to resolve this by messing with it. Most people get HP Levers or Rizoma,, something like that. I have never seen the Chinese products for BMW, I seen several on the GSXR's I purchased over the years. Some were good, most were bad.

Just return the brake lever and hope the next one works better. By your description of the issue, I have no clue how to help.

I've seen this a few times with Chinese stuff. Don't try to fix it, return it. Your life is at stake.

This is why you don't buy sh1tbox Chinese crap off ebay. I once did the same thing on my CBR. I got like 2kms down the road and came to a halt. The brake lever piston to master cylinder clearance is not enough. It applies the brakes ever so slightly and once they heat up they lock solid. I had to get a few people in the traffic to lift the bike off the road with me. Then I took it off and rode home with just the rear. Never again. Only good stuff from now on.

Yep it's a false economy buying bike bits out of China. This bike has your life on the line, don't risk it with cheap ****.


P.s. I have these.
