OK I decided I want some levers. I have a Black 06 and want to see what colors you guys bought and what looks best, I am thinking Black levers with gold tabs or gold levers with black tabs :???:

post up yer pics and help me decide :-D

BTW I am going with long (standard ??) length, I think levers should have leverage :)

black shorties with gold tabs for me.
You will get more than enough leverage with the shorties.

This is a little off the thread, but what is the advantage of shorties over the long levers? Why chose one over the other? :???: :???: :???:

i picked up some black levers with silver adjusters.
i can't say about advantages for shorties on my end over style really.
i'm finding that i need to push the perch more into the bar to not hit my 3rd finger when doing a 2 finger pull.

user tested i'd sayt i like them a lot. they have a nice feel.

I have black shorties and black adjustment tabs. I have GSXR fron calipers with EBS pads - and stopies are almost too easy...intentional or not.

Yeah that was my first choice but I figured the forks and levers wouldnt match.

How about blue tabs ? Match the blue bits on the fork adjustments ??

As soon as I put the gold ones on i realized the blue levers would have gone great with blue on the triple trees and the back shock. They still look hot though.

I went with black shorties and blue adjusters. The blue matches the fork adjusters better than the gold matches the fork.

Shorties are less likely to be damaged in a drop. Plus, how much squeeze can you get from your pinky? I was concerned about the shorty clutch but it is no problem. I also slide the perch inboard a little to get my fingers positioned correctly on the lever.

I think I'm going all black. You can get a set of Pazzo's from Motomummy for about $145. Anybody know of anywhere less expensive?

Here is a link to a group buy. Does your $145.00 price include shipping?

These are $150 shipped.

Hey Legman

I knew it was a odd choice of words! Even if it is true.

Cheers Triple_Rider

The wheels are a task to keep clean!!!
