Difference between Tektro 4.0 and 4.1?

Difference between Tektro 4.0 and 4.1?

Can anyone tell me the difference between the Tektro 4.0 reverse brake levers and the Tektro 4.1 reverse brake levers? I searched the forums and found no thread answering this question. I ask because I bought a pair off eBay advertised as 4.0 and received a pair of 4.1s. The pictured lever on eBay is definitely not the lever I got, but if the 4.1 is of the same quality and all as the 4.0, I'm not inclined to complain. Is it? Thanks.

Well, the Tektro website only has the 4.1 on there, so I guess it's the new version of the 4.0.

4.1 is supposed to have a bit stronger return spring so that the cable returns are brisker. Funny angles do funny things to the cable. So, the 4.1 is an improvement over the 4.0. I have the 4.0's and they still work fine so either way, you're good to go.
