Damaged goods

Just got my first look at the Street since the wreck. The tank has a small dent on the right and a big flat spot on the left. Front fender and radiator shroud are broken. Left mirror is scratched , grip is ripped and lever is bent. Not too bad for 25 mph. What grips or levers are better than stock?

I have a pair of 10 Click adjustable levers, that are a bit of an obvious rip off of Pazzo shorties. $29.99 incl postage, from ebay. They are incredibly good quality and a good fit, available for all models in a multitude of colors and hard to believe they are so cheap.

I put these(I think the same ones) on my Sprint 2 years ago. The black anodizing faded to a gunmetal grey, but that's the ONLY complaint. Even that's not really a complaint, as they match my graphite grey bike perfectly!
If I has it to do again, I'd get the same ones, but in a silver finish.

I would think those that fit your hand best, like we all got different sized and shaped hands.
I have never really seen after market grips and levers set up so you could stand there and test them for size and ergos, be handy to be able to walk in somewhere and do it though.





...anyone spot the obvious punning there?

Those look good! I use two fingers on the levers. I like. The idea of adjustable.

Very handy, Dog.

When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead.
It is difficult only for the others.
It is the same when you are stupid

I have some Chinese Pazzo knock offs as well and like them. I'd buy them again.
