This reminds me of when I ordered a LEFT tail piece from Triumph. The box arrived 2 weeks later... Printed on the box was LEFT... the part inside, a RIGHT tail piece. For cripe sake, left and right? I ordered through Bike Bandit, they really didnt want to believe me, I mean, who can F- up left and right?

Variety of anodized colors include black, blue, red, silver and gold.

Same quality? I don't know. I do know I can't tell the difference and it certainly isn't $160.00 worth of difference to me.

I get it...buying Chinese is bad. But look around your life. It's everywhere. And pointing out the percieved inferior quality as a reason for avoiding it doesn't always work.

I'll admit it. My principals are not absolute. Things I spend my money on are subject to scrutiny like everything else. Cost/value/need are balanced against my #1 principal, which is to keep my family fed.

As for the levers...if they break, they break. I'll go back to my stock levers without missing a beat. They are, after all, just levers.

*I will admit, though...I am somewhat bummed that I'm missing out on the stickers, keychains, and other swag that the chinese apparently don't have the means to produce.
Oh my, i'm just imagining the argument we could have...

LOL. I know, I know. I'm not looking for one by any means. We all make our own decisions and I'm not saying what's right or wrong. Just throwing my .02 into the Pazzo discussion.
Hey, some of my best friends have Pazzo levers! 😁

Yes, it's all good. Besides, this site is sort of an anomally compared to the other forums I'm a member of. People actually "get along" and the knock-down brawls that happen in, well...all of them, just don't seem to happen here. And let's face it, these esoteric nonesense debates are better over beer where tone and temperment are much more easily conveyed.

That's why manufacturing is starting to trickle back to the Us.

That is deeply relieving news.
