Good day peepoles

My KTM 1290 SuperDukeR has really fugly levers and I would like to change them.
KTM do sell levers in their "Powerparts" catalog but at R2.5K per lever.... I don't want to spend that much just on levers.
I recently Spent R1k for a set of levers that were fitted to a 2018 GSX-S1000. Why Can't I get a set for R1.5K-R2k?
I have looked and many places have told me they don't have levers for the bike.

Does anyone anywhere have an Idea where and how I could possibly get some in this country without buying them from KTM?

Race Prep's number doesn't exist apparently. Biking accessories didn't have :'(
I don't think anyone but KTM have levers for the 2017-2018 SuperDuke R :'( much sadness.
R5.6k for levers?..... no, I'll live with the ugly ones then.
I will continue to look for some cheaper ones.

And you can't get some kind of universal racing levers?

You can try to order online from some places.

This is when you find out exactly how USELESS!!!!!! the Motorcycle industry is in terms of accessories. If they do not have go somewhere else.

I imported mine and it cost me about R1.2k for the pair including shipping and VAT etc. however they were not a 100% fit.

GPS4Africa has very good service I found and was the only ones that actually tried to help me.

Evotech and Rottweiler has some nice stuff for the KTM and do fit the KTM Superduke very nicely and do ship to SA via DHL and not Post office,

If they try to help you at all.
Lol. Ye finding bike bits in SA is a mess.
I've ordered fairings from SF, as well as shorties from Sbk, both were quick and easy. But yea, if they will be able to help you beyond what they have in stock... Can only ask and hope.

Be careful of the chinese knockoffs... there have been cases where they weren't machined correctly and they were dragging the brakes or not releasing properly resulting in issues with the brakes.

Also cases where they didn't fully engage braking even at max adjustment, meaning you suddenly have less stopping power than before.

Some guys buy them and then machine them to match the actual levers...

YMMV and it depends on where you buy them... but be careful.

Order some levers from ebay. Used them on a few bikes and so did friends. Had no problems. R600 is better than R2500.
