Smile adjustable front brake lever

my wife just got a new red rebel.she was having trouble reaching the front brake with her small hands so much she could not us it.after some checking around I ordered a new lever for a cbr250r. It fits perfict and her fingers now can wrap around it.you could file the stop for a shorter reach but she said it was perfict just like it was. it was about $50.00 and I ordered it from motoheaven.com I have some pictures on her phone but i'll need her to put them on here.

she didn't complain about the clutch lever, it seamed to be ok after I gave it some free play.The dealer had no free play in the lever and the chain was sooooo tight about 1/2 turn on adjusters befor the tension was released off the threads then about 1 turn more out to get proper chain slack.

Looks nice. Occasionally someone posts looking for alternate levers due to small hands, limited hand mobility, etc. Does it perform well?

My bike has adjustable levers as standard equipment. They work great, but with my big hands (XL gloves) I didn't really need them. It's surprising more manufacturers don't offer them at least as an option.
