My dealer sold me a Bubba's rear brake lever - billeted. He claimed it was "just like the HD extended billeted lever. So, I "trusted" and we know what happened then.

The Bubba's lever is nice looking but:

1. It has less clearance than the HD extended; my foot cld not get underneath it to use the whole floor board.

2. It fits poorly at the attach point - loose to about 1/16 - needs a "wavy" washer according to Bubba's.

3. Possibly due to "heavy" plating it feels like it is staging before it connects with the push rod.

4. After removing the Bubba's and re-installing the stock (extended) lever I no longer had a "clunk" at the end of hard stops - Go figure.

RIDE OFTEN - FLY NEVER.

Correct - the 04 comes with an extended but it is not billeted. I can live with that. Jim
