Cheers chaps. The levers are from e-bay - Color Tree was the brand on the box - from China, beautifully made and a perfect fit for 14. The listing has ended but they're the same as these as far as I can tell..

The screen had to be spaced out to accommodate the Barkbusters - they ran into it on lock.

Do you not find the footpeg inserts a bit 'slippy' ?especially  when wet.

Hi Oyley, you'd think so, but not found that so far. I fitted them as I was having trouble getting my foot under the gear lever and needed to lower my foot in relation to it. I'd run out of adjustment on the lever rod (the engine bars don't allow the full available adjustment on the rod adjuster length without removing material). Anyway, none of my previous sportsbikes had rubber on the footpegs and I never had an issue.

An added benefit of moving the screen forward gave me more room to mount the sat-nav behind it.
