    Those levers include master cylinder and reservoir. If you just want levers you can get them off eBay for $28-35. It's an easy swap. I have them and like them.

    Do you know what the ratio is for those master cylinders compared to the OEM? Unless you know that you could find yourself overbraked or underbraked. Personally I'd just get the shorty levers from http://www.434racer.com/ .

    Yes, I have the shorty clutch and brake levers from 434racer.com. Very happy with them. I've heard that the colors will fade if they spend a lot of time in the sun, but don't know that for a fact.

    Just look on ebay

    I got a set for my 07 VFR from China, took about a week to get them, simple to fit and great quality. Only cost about $25 including shipping. At those sorts of prices you could order 2 sets and keep one set for spares.

    got you this? http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Silv...aster-Cylinder-with-Reservoir/1881136754.html

    I am not sure who can install it (i have concern about local service) Is that easy and safety to compare original levers and hydraulic things?

    Like I said, the main concern is that the hydraulic pressure from the new master cylinder is about the same as the original master cylinder. That way your brakes will work the same as they did before you changed things. I have no idea whether those will work well with your bike.

    I have two sets of these, one set of full length levers on my Duc and shorty levers on my 5 Gen. Although a bit pricey they do appear to hold up to tip overs! I low sided my Duc and they came out OK apart form some scratches, and I dropped my 5 Gen in the garage and again came out OK. If you go to the ASV website, they do offer refurbished levers which basically is a lever that was returned, probably under warranty, and they made them like new again. Essentially these are about half price but they do not come with a warranty. The levers I have on my 5 Gen are refurbished ones, so I can say even being a refurbished lever they appear to work just fine.

    Even cheaper on aliexpress.com. Have one set of normals on a bike and some folding ones on the other. Very pleased with them and suspect many UK sellers source from here.
