This post is addressed to Eddie because I seem to recall a picture he posted of the levers on his SCR. If my memory is correct he drilled a series of small holes in the levers and they were black levers? The looked really cool. So I want to purchase black aftermarket levers that fit my SCR but I dont know what to look for or how to correctly describe them. I know there are all kinds of levers in all kinds of configurations, sizes and specs... If anyone can help me out it would be much appreciated! Thanks, flatrack

Sorry, guy!
Mine are just the stockers, drilled and polished up a bit. =)
The SCR950 brake lever is same as the Bolt C-spec part # B33-83922-00-00 .
The clutch lever, part # 5EB-83912-03-00, fit's a BUNCH of other bikes such as the FZ-07, FZ-09, R6, R1, FZ6R, etc...
You might get lucky and locate some black levers in the aftermarket using this as a guide.
An OEM brake lever is about $26 and the clutch $28 if you want to experiment.

Thank you! Now I have the info I need! Thinking of buying the OEM ones and painting them but over time i think the paint will rub off - maybe powdercoat. Ideally i can find quality and inexpensive aftermarket ones. Now that I have something to reference it should be easier - quality is paramount. Imagine snapping a clutch lever out on the road somewhere? That would not be fun.

No local powder coater?
It'd certainly last longer (especially on the clutch side) vs. paint.
Harbor Freight used to carry home powder coating supplies, too. Ditto Eastwood automotive folks.

Thought about that. Would a powdercoating place do as small a job? Thinking spray them after riding season and then install the sleeves that slide over top - sorta like heat shrink. I've seen them on eBay.

Doing them in black should be easy enough for a coating business. They could work them in with a larger job. =)

I had some of the lever skin sleeves on a bike before. They worked great for reducing slippage when in rain. They did alert the thickness of the levers appreciably, though - about like the stitch-up leather ones you may have seen on Harley levers.
After a while, and without notice, the clutch side of the shrinkable covers wore clean through to the metal. So, there is a longevity down side.
