Gas gas levers

Recommended Posts

Hi I’m a newbie and need help I’ve bought a gas gas 2012 txt 280 and it has these awful levers that move and flick out I get the idea it’s for if you drop it etc to save them but I don’t like them they’re on formula reservoirs and I can’t find replacements anywhere, i ordered some online and they said they would fit but they don’t can anyone help cheers Steve

i had the exact same issue with my 2010 gas gas...those levers are clunky and horrible and make most trials impossible. i am in canada and had the best experience ever with Dave Fair from gas gas pacific(Victoria B.C.)....they can be reached at  gasgaspacific@telus.net    or by calling 250 380 7137. i got the S3 part number MC-LE238-B (brake) and MC-LE236-B (clutch) nothing but happy now.

 On the other hand you would be better off to replace both the master cylinders as they are junk.

As far as I know, there are no replacement levers for Formula master cylinders other than standard, plus as lineaway mentioned, you would be better off replacing the Formula masters with AJP or Braktec. I looked at modifying AJP levers to fit the Formula master, but the pivot/actuation points are too dissimilar to be effective. Bye, Peter B.

Not a fan of those general style of levers, but formula really did a good job with them in keeping them small and neat, so much so when i had them on my 2012 gg i never replaced them. If you're a newbie, then you might not know that standard levers aren't that much of an improvement over the ones you have
