Pazzo/Ebay the2wheels lever Comparison

Well after only and few rides on my new to me T100, I realized I miss my Pazzo levers that I've had on my Sv650s for last few years.

So with that I jumped on the forums to see what the rest of you have done for your Bonnies and it's seems a majority of you went the cheap way and really I can't blame you. So with $32 Canadian and a week and half wait I have a set of all black shorties.

How do they compare? Well since Sv and the Bonnie use the same F14 lever for the brake I get a side by side comparison. The fit and finish, machined pattern, rounded edges, engraved numbers, bolts/nuts are all top quality on the Pazzo as it should be. These levers look like jewelry for your ride.

The the2wheels lever is a clear knock off with the exact same movement, size and functions as the Pazzo lever. Visually it looks unfinished almost prototype like when side by side. It build quality however does feel the same. Only time will tell on it's durability.

Now all of that being said em I complaining? - Heck No. These are going to look and function great on the T100. That $200 bucks I saved will go to some other upgrade to the Bonnie. Hmm I'am thinking Lucas tail lights……anyway, here's the pics for you own comparison.

Surely its only a matter of time before Pazzo goes out of business

I have had two sets of the2wheel levers over the last two years and am very pleased with the quality and durability of them.

Put me down for the real thing. Love the Pazzos on my Bonnie! Black levers (long) with red adjusters.

I've had the '2 wheels' levers on my Bonne and, so far, like them a lot. Sturdy, sporty, and good looking, too. They're a direct replacement to the OEM levers...a definite plus.

Ive had two sets of Ebay levers on previous bikes and for £25 the quality has been faultless. After a year of using them they still looked liked new,

I think to a certain degree it is a shame that companies like Pazzo are hit by knock offs but unfortunately performance companies seem to have a tendency to price themselves out of the market. Their business model seems to be sell at a high price to 1000 people rather than a median price to 10'000.

I got my Pazzos before the knockoffs hit the market (like a week before, as it turned out). Oh well, they're still pure motorcycle decadence. Titanium shorties with black accents.

I tend to agree with you. I've been using some ShineTrust knock-offs for over two years now and they look good and perform faultlessly. My thoughts about them on this thread:

Careful, or you'll get the Moral Brigade on you telling you that you are personally going to destroy the motorcycle industry as a whole....

Saying that, I love my Chazzo's...
