CB500F levers on the Rebel?

Just wondering if anyone has tried the factory adjustable levers from the CB500F on the Rebel? I found a set for cheap locally but don't want to waste the money if they don't work.

Do you get enough clutch movement to fully engage and disengage the clutch with those? They seem like it would hit the handlebar before actually releasing the clutch completely.

Yep, no issue running these. Have had them on for over a year now.

if it ever does that adjust the clutch slack at the opposite end and it will fix it. also i have those levers and big hands and as soon as it gets to 3 its almost to far out for me to grab! I have right set to 2 and the left at 1

I ended up buying them and giving them a try. The brake lever is to thin where it mounts in the housing though to be usable unless I add some washers to close the gap. The clutch I agree with you Flyinbrianbmx is way to far out not even really an improvement over stock. I think I'm going to try the ones for the Honda Fury next as some seem to have had luck with those.
