How they’re made?
In-house design, in-house assembly
Made of CNC-milled 6082 aluminum which is later hard anodized for total weatherproof coating and perfected finish – available in matte black or metallic silver. These are the upgraded versions of the first switchgear units released back in 2017.
How to install?
Each switchgear set comes with a bolt-on clamp (tighten to 12Nm). For wiring – you’ll be needing a pair of experienced hands.
How to choose?
22mm = Standard motorcycle handlebar thickness
1″ (25.4mm) = Harley-Davidson standard handlebar thickness (some Triumphs as well)
Depending on your needs and preferences – our current best-seller has definitely been the Switchgear in Black for a 22mm handlebar. If you’d like to upgrade your braking power to something new – maybe to a brand that’s renowned for making brakes for racecars, motorcycles, ATVs, and even airplanes – then there’s the Beringer full switchgear set. In the Beringer selection – you can choose between a cable or hydraulic clutch set.
Choosing the right brake master cylinder size comes down to your existing brakes – it has to match the right size. Check out the options from the store.

We’ve been building custom motorcycles for over 16 years; cafe racers, scramblers, side-cars, and even a sport-touring bike on a full monocoque frame for a start! Our main focus has been BMW’s R-series motorcycles, but we’ve also redesigned a wide variety of bikes – Triumph, Moto Guzzi, Ducati, Honda, Harley-Davidson, and even the SWM.

#2 RENARD/BERINGER SWITCHGEAR
Hydraulic Brake & Cable Clutch
In cooperation with Beringer – this is our most advanced switchgear set you can get on your handlebar. Beringer braking performance differs from other known names by their rubbery, kind of industrial feel. Beringer focuses on performance brakes, and after all – their top-of-the-line brakes are called AEROTEC which clearly indicates their background in aviation, just like the BMW R-series motorcycles.
Choose between a flashy silver or a more subtle yet popular black. Available for 22mm or 1″ handlebars that fit most motorcycles without an issue. If you’d like to upgrade to even higher by swapping out the brakes – ask us for the Beringer Full Hydraulic Motorcycle handlebar switch set with hydraulic brakes and clutch.

#3 COMPACT SWITCHGEAR
This a clever option for anyone who is after an organized solution on their handlebar. The Compact is a 6-button switchgear unit that comes in at least 50% of the size of an average OEM switchgear set. Everything’s there – nothing to add or remove. High-quality build and timeless design – the Compact has 4 impulse buttons on the left, and 2 on the right.
The Compact has the same motorcycle turn signal switch location that you’d expect from the majority of bikes – under your left arm.

Do you need just two extra buttons next to your existing OEM switchgear? No problem, as we’ve made customizable options as well. The CYO Switchgear is a perfect option for those looking to upgrade their current bulky plastic switchgear unit to something real.
If you’d like to re-arrange the whole handlebar on a cable clutch motorcycle, or simply need a new pair of buttons (such as menu or cruise control) – have a look at the whole button option list from the store. It is easy to buy a 1-dollar motorcycle starter switch, but if you’d like to start organizing the limited space on your handlebar in style – write us which side and buttons do you need.
