The folding clutch lever, is it spring loaded? Does it take a good effort to move it? I dont want it to be moving when I pull on it... any comments on folks using them...clutch and brake? do thay stay put!

so its more like a pin setup? Can you force it to fold and does it snap back?

If you have the cash, get the Brembo folding levers.

Not spring loaded, they have a allen bolt that you can adjust the tension on the folding joint, although I have never adjusted mine from out of the packet, and every time I crash it just takes a slight bump to get it back into place.

It never moves without crashing, and you will never notice it when your pulling on the clutch, or brake for that matter.

The brembo clutch lever is made to fit any year r1 clutch perch. I just wanted the clutch and brake levers to match. I think the store was opp racing?
