I have a midwest lever, it works well, considerably lighter but compromises clutch feel a little. Exxey though.
I would like to know what levers the pros in Erzburg were using, most use open handguards and after watching some of the great helmet cam I realize that the best riders there all dropped there bike at some stage.
Would be a race breaker for some of them with a broken lever.

I've been using Sunline V1 MDX flex levers for a very long time. They flex both ways.

Brake light switch on a brembo won't work with the front brake lever though, if thats something you need to consider

Pivot feel may be lighter as due to the pivot mechanism, you have the grab the lever further from the pivot than a stock lever. They're only about $100-$120
It pumps one way and then it pumps the other...

I had the mid west lever and couldn't get along with it.

I've had a bunch of levers and reckon the stock KTM or Enduro Engineering levers feel the best, but neither fold.

So as far as folding levers go, I run the renthal intellilevers both sides on both bikes.
