Shorty Levers...

Hey guys...I'm in the market for some new levers (don't need anything too great) n I happened to come across these on eBay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Brake...item3a58086920

They look "similar" to ASV's but they're coming from Hong Kong...anyone ever seen these or heard anything about them?

Getting some good feedback from people...saying they're good quality and finish, shorter than OEM but not as short as ASV's. Easy and no problems installing.

i rode a heavily (cosmetically) modded gsxr 750 that had levers like those blue ones, they look exactly the same but idk the brand that was on the bike, they were sqaure shaped which hurt the fingers at the first pull, didnt get easier or harder to pull with adjustment, just hurt xD but they were pretty short and look good but make you wanna have a quickshifter so you dont have to touch them

Let you guys know when I get em

try them out and let us know. Careful though a lot of the knock off stuff really doesn't hold up. Typically the initial fitment is crap as well.

Okay guys I finally decided to pull the trigger on the cheap ebay levers that everyone has been questioning. Messaged Arnezzy and found out he'd messaged some buyers on ebay and had gotten good feedback so I went for it. They were $50 for a set of shortys, compared to $80 at ride it moto and $180 for the real pazzo's. I just ordered them today. It says 10-21 working days, I really hope I don't have to wait a month to get these.

I will keep ya posted with pics and install when I get them. Here are links to all 3.

I have been using these cheap shorty levers off of e-bay for some months now and they are fine i paid 22.90 gbp plus postage for both sets first set fitted to a gsxr 1000k2 in gold they faded a little otherwise no problems
second pair fitter to my gsxr 1000k6 in black no problems at all would recomend them much cheaper than pazzo's and look and work just as good

Installed these levers last night. Barely took 30 mins. Super easy. Take out 2 bolts and nuts, take off old levers, put on new levers, tighten nuts and bolts, and adjust for comfort.

The only things I dont like is how sloppy the fit is on the clutch handle. This could be a problem I caused (the bike has been down on that side and previous lever broke, it may have had the same looseness in it, can't remember). the other things is the stock brake lever had a brass bushing pressed into it and these dont. If it becomes an issue I will drill it out and press in a brass bushing or small roller bearing.

What do you guys use to lube your lever pivot points??

I will try and get up some pics in the next day or 2.
