Here's my initial mods to this lovely machine. The exhaust and clutch levers are ones I took off of my FZ07 before I sold it to make room for this one. They fit right up with no issues. Gilles Tooling lever (expensive but awesome) & the exhaust is a Chinese knockoff from Ebay. Looks & sounds great! The tail light is a Blaster X & I love it. Stock wiring harness so no cutting or splicing. It looks & operates beautifully. The license plate brackets I made myself utilizing the brake reservoir bolt on one side and the same one on the other side that appears to do absolutely nothing, but it does now!! I also relocated the brake reservoir temp until I get the official eliminator for it. I just shorted the hose and zip tied it in place for now. It works. The bar end mirrors I've used on all my bikes and they are great. You can actually see behind you and not just your elbows!!

And the levers are adjustable! I've been trying to find some adjustable ones that work with this bike. Thanks for sharing.

Not only are they adjustable but they are super adjustable!! I dislike cable clutches because I like my clutch to grab pretty quick with the lever release & I can never find levers that allow that without having to adjust it via the cable & watch the lever flop around. These do & they feel so fantastic. By far the best lever(s) I've ever had, no question.

Nice.
Their brake lever doesn't work with the R7 though? Or does it?
You are correct. The sweet Brembo master cylinder on the R7 does not allow for the sweet lever on the brake side, which is a shame. I'm patiently waiting for a nice brake lever.

It's
Could you name or share a link to the adjustable lever that you used?
Gilles Tooling. I bought the 2 levers seperately for the FZ07 & they were $180ish per lever. I don't remember where I bought 'em from but they were listed on Yamaha's site for FZ07 accessories. Expensive but absolutely awesome.

Brembo makes adjustable levers for clutch and brake side that work on the R7. If you need a link let me know.....just Google Brembo RCS levers
