Warp 9 - 3-Finger Levers review by a4sza

I've had these Warp 9 3-finger levers four days and I'm totally sold. My hands are pretty medium sized and the stock levers on the DR650 are OK although a bit reachy for really fine control. W9 levers are adjustable and put the levers into a very comfortable reach with enhanced clutch and brake control.

The brake now feels more like my MTB, and works comfortably with 1 finger for light/trail braking or 2 for a moderate anchor. This lever lets me maintain fine control of the throttle with two outside fingers while achieving good brake control with ring and index fingers. The brakes feel just as solid as before but much more controllable.

The W9 clutch lever is light, comfortable and requires a minimal depression for smooth shifting in the higher gears.

Being shorter, both levers are (hopefully) less prone to breakage than the lengthy stock units. The brake lever also comes with a nylon shim + mount-fitting to allow the brake and mirror to rotate under force in event of a fall or dropped bike.

Fitting these levers took about 10-15 minutes and I now have the old levers as spares to take on long rides (for when my mate breaks his clutch lever yet again LOL).
