When I first got the bike in Feb of '17, I tried to switch the levers to shorties found on ebay. From China, of course, advertised as fitting the '15-'17 bikes.
Of course, they didn't fit, the brass bushing insert bore was too large for the shoulder screw on the 17, so they were loose. They were only 22 bucks so they went into the black hole of my garage. I doubt I could even send them back for that much.
Has anyone found a (cheap) set for the 2017 specifically? I don't know if they're actually different from the earlier ones, but of course it does have the slipper clutch and a change or two up at the lever end also. A link would be awesome.

To answer some of your questions, No there is no difference in '16 v '17 levers with the slipper clutch, that's all internal changes. I wouldn't say you were hijacked, just that the recommendation that betoney gave is a really good one, and to be fair he included a link
After thinking way too long about what color combo to go with I settled on black levers and silver adjusters. Thanks for the link!
Good call... you won’t be disappointed. The black levers look great with all the other black surfaces around the cockpit. I went with red adjusters on my red bike, and like the little bit of color. For any other color bike, I would have gone silver or gold for the adjusters.
