If you want real fancy, then the works Connection Perch range is pretty much as good as you get. Bearings in the lever pivot, nylon slip spacers to reduce risk of snapping in a crash and on the fly clutch adjustment dial. Just make sure you get the right one that has the decomp lever integrated. XRs only has the correct one for the XRR.

Hope this helps!
