I had a set of Titax. Nice levers but didn't pay anywhere near the $250 they're asking now.

I'll go for these next.long vs short levers, and brands?-imageuploadedbymotorcycle1353804864.985413.jpg

And then there's the other issue where people have had the springs rust and fail, making the pads constantly contact the disc, heat ping the fluid up till the brakes come hard on and the bike goes for a slide....
Plus all the Chinese knock offs I've seen are actually Pazzo copies

Sometimes is worth spending the money on the good stuff.

I can't believe somebody would actually put Chinese reverse engineered performance parts on their performance machine. I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for. My health, lively-hood, and motorcycle are worth more than a $100 dollar savings on cheap-ass levers; or anything else for that matter.

Careful, Mr. dieselgeek has a set on his. Which he overhauled totally after turning orange (from black)

There was a long discussion about Chinese levers, and to my surprise many were putting that s-it on their expensive machines.

I can say Pazzo has a very good finish and quality + made in Canada, but I need something different next.

$220.00 and made in Italy (picture above)

Check out adjustable-levers.com. I was going to get Pazzo's before I found these sweet CNC folding sliding adj. for less than half the price. Now I don't have to choose between short,mid,long!!!???

I got a set of the chinese levers and while the clutch works perfectly the brake doesn't.

Maybe i just need some more grease on them.

long vs short levers, and brands?

Fwiw I have a set of Chinese levers. At $28 delivered just too good a deal to pass up.
