Question Reccommend me...adjustable levers

Been struggling recently with using the front brake as efficiently as Id like to and I think its down to too wide a gap on the the front brake lever, so I need some new levers anyway and was wondering what would anyone suggest for my 2001 curvey ?

Expensive though. I've got a set on mine and they're lovely, but OEM does the job at half the price...

I didn't know that, I thought they had a little more adjustment. So it's more of a bling thing then....

Glad I don't have small hands!

They may have a little more adjustment, but not much if they do. The clutch lever is adjustable, mind, that's handy.

id say its more likely the calipers need an overhall, oem levers are fine and no different in travel/span than expensive billett ones

Its more likely to be calipers, either the brackets bent (if it had a crash in the past), discs 'dished' or just calipers smegged up, they can give a long lever if they are starting to sieze
