I have a 2005 FSC600D/A (?). My fingers do not reach/rest on the brake levers comfortably and therefore tend to rest on the grips. Can I bring the lever closer to the grips or replace them with levers that rest closer to the grips? And where can I find such replacement parts, I couldn't find any but I'm not to good at these things (bikes, computers).

While I don't recall any mention of adjustable levers here on this forum you might try Revzilla.com for adjustable brake & clutch levers. Keep in mind that the left lever on a Silverwing is not the same as a typical clutch lever though. Silverwing left levers also activate the brake/start switch.

Here is a link to a manufacturer of custom levers: http://asvinventions.com/Unbreakable-Levers

Hope this helps

From time to time I service Silverwing's and other bikes for small handed Female Riders, They have a problem reaching the brake levers. By removing the Shoulder fastener, The lever will come off the Master cylinder. Apply a small piece of sticky tape to the stop area on the master cylinder after cleaning it.

This will prevent the lever returning to it's outermost position, Carefully of the switch lever arm.

Make sure that the sticky tape is not so thick that it holds the switch on and activates the stop light.

A second method I use is to drill the lever at the high area where it contacts the stop, Tapping the hole for an 8/32 machine screw allows for adjustment.

A 8/32 machine screw nut serves as a jam nut against the foreword portion of the lever.

Adjusting the machine screw in causes the handle to stop nearer the handlebar grip.

Again be sure that the adjustment does not cause the stop light to remain on, Sometime I find it necessary to carefully bend the Brake Light switch arm so that I can get the proper adjustment.

Be sure you do not adjust to the point that the Brakes are dragging.

Happy motoring Lloyd 193.

The sw levers have a lot of travel anyway so treat any modification with extreme care, you don't want to be in a situation where the lever hits the bar before applying full braking effect.

Nice looking levers. Nice photos too. Do those levers have any advantage other than to adjust them to more finger friendly position?

What's the story on the mirrors? Kind of unique.

Hey Tim!
The levers are mainly. For finger positions other then that and looks. I believe that’s all. Lol. And the mirrors I got awhile back for my cbr250r. Since I’m selling the cbr250r I put the stock mirror back on it. Figured I would try them out on the silverwing. So far I really like em. And the levers.
