Brake and clutch levers on kh

Postby Leejm » Tue Jul 23, 2019 6:01 pm

This is my first twin so I'm going to be asking some questions so forgive me.
What type of levers were fitted to kh's originally? Of course there's no air /mag and lifter like a single. But the style of lever the same otherwise ie solid type or hollow type. By the way its for a 51.
Cheers Lee

Yeah . The crappy later ones. The one grace is there's no choke or advance so the bars are relatively uncluttered. The choke is on the top of the Carby This you already know.. The CZ boys make good items . Only brass and steel used.. Don't run an allen head anywhere. Nev

I much prefer the solid levers, the open back ones always seem cheap and nasty in comparison. But if that's what they had that's what it will have unfortunately.

There's nothing wrong with the ''open'' ones Lee they function ok, and above all they are period... I would prefer the cheese head screws in stead of the hexagon ones on the picture.

I'm not buying the ones in the picture it was just to show the difference between the two. Paul are you going to the annual rally?

The later ones are quite adequate and strong and are period. The biggest problem is they rust in the hard to get place. Nev

Hi Lee, if you prefer to operate the choke from the handlebars, like I do, it can easily be converted eg cable from Drags, lever from Feked and a small mod. to the choke slide within the carb..

Also, a thought for the future, rebuilding my KH engine I found that the 2 small internal screws within the crankcase, they help hold the cases together, did not seem to have any positive locking feature, if they become loose they would cause some serioue damage. I therefore drilled and wire locked them in place, see attached.
