High quality replacement controls?

I'm kind of overwhelmed selecting a set of replacement controls for my hobbit build.

I basically want:

- 2 brake levers and a 3rd lever of some sort for decomp

- maybe long pull throttle for 21mm phbg. I just realized I'm not sure most throttles can pull 21mm, might need a long pull.

- spot for brake sensor??

So should I just get a long pull throttle and levers separately?

Domino left with decomp lever:

matching right one:

long pull throttle:

So yeah, spend another $70 or more on fucking controls? Ugh..... PLUS $10 for a nice kill switch:

Are there better options? That $50 pack seems ultra cheap, based on the reviews.

Re: High quality replacement controls?

dont getthat long pull. i hated it and sold it. cheap plastic shit

ill sell you the motion pro one from treats for cheaper. i bought it and decided to use the commando (scored for cheap)

Re: High quality replacement controls?

motion pro vortex is amazing.......

Re: High quality replacement controls?

I like Domino, other than the plastic levers. They're easy to set up and have a nice feel to them.

Probably Fred /

A throttle that pulls 21mm can only open a 19mm carb cause you need a few mm clearance when you move your handle bars and the inner cable tightens

Re: High quality replacement controls?

Check buy/sell. I've got a kill switch too if you want it....

Re: High quality replacement controls?

I love the magura controls I bought.

Re: High quality replacement controls?

Those Domino ones are really nice, although there's nowhere for a brake switch. Also, I know one review says they could use the small plastic lever for a Puch clutch, but I couldn't (although I have small girly hands, which probably didn't improve matters). I had to invent an extension for that lever to be able to engage a Puch clutch with it, and then that lever eventually cracked and broke. I'd still recommend them because they are so nice, but just beware of that stuff.

Re: High quality replacement controls?

I'm using it for a hobbit build, so I don't need a clutch cable. It should be long enough for decomp use, I think. I wish they had a place for a brake light sensor, as well, but this isn't going to be my daily rider (I don't think), so I'll live a bit more dangerously.

Re: High quality replacement controls?

All of my domino controls have brake light switches, I'm sure there must be a set available with them.

Re: High quality replacement controls?

all my domino ones have places for switches and brake lights.

i actually just ground down the brake switch/lever tab on my throttle to make it fit with the master cylinder :/

handybikes/77 might should have them... just call and ask. might not be on the site yet

Re: High quality replacement controls?

It seems like new ones don't have them but maybe stock ones on the peds that have them do?

Re: High quality replacement controls?

oh yeah.. definitely stock

i have bare metals on my garelli... but its the kind with the throttle and brake lever all in one

Re: High quality replacement controls?

I have stand alone levers with pegs to mount the switches...

Re: High quality replacement controls?

Whats wrong with stock honda controls and switches?

The levers are metal and the switch cases indestructable.

Re: High quality replacement controls?

Because I'm not using the horn, turn signals, or light switches, and the big silver switch box is clumsy and useless now. I also like how Domino controls feel on Tomos bikes.

Re: High quality replacement controls?

Yeah the dominoes are cleen and sleek.

I'm all about cleen and sleek when I fabricate

Re: High quality replacement controls?

If they didn't have such a short pull, Motobecane controls are the prettiest.
