I've used ebay levers before on multple occasions/bikes and had no issues. Currently using one on my 06 clutch. Foldable extendable lever. Come on how hard is it to knock off a lever with a CNC machine.
True, yet you just have to consider the metallurgy of the materials you're cutting from. Granted, there are aftermarket levers sold on eBay and elsewhere that are fantastic yet they are mixed within sales of other levers manufactured using sub-par materials without regard/testing that they are of sound construction.
I like knowing that the part will hold... not hoping that it will.
I am always one to seek out a good deal, yet I always consider the ramifications for me "cheaping-out" on a part.
Not going to argue "he's right or wrong" about levers; if they float your boat and get the job done; Cheers to ya!
