    2009 XB12R hand lever compatibility???



    Members don't see the above ad. Register now - it's free!
    I keep noticing, when shopping for hand levers for my 09 XB12, that every stops at 2008 in their listings. is there a reason that the 2008 levers won't fit my 2009?

    thanks in advance for any insight.

    Your 09 R has a ZTL2 caliper and the master cylinder is different than the 03-08's, the clutch levers were all the same.

    9bolt is correct https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 These will fit all years yes . I am using this on my http://www.ebay.com/itm/Buell-8-Pist...wAAOSwPhdU2S7d Long story short I have found that the master cylinder bore is larger but the levers are inter changeable. on all years.
