Mine came in today. Pretty sweet for $23.88 delivered to your door.

I have been wanting to change them since going down the highway I watched the brake lever bounce off my knee and say bye bye. Of course being the tight wad I am I pulled over walked back and picked up the lever, surprising there were only some scratches on the end. No front brakes to the auto-parts store.

Joe
did you use bushing?
taking my stock off after work

Got them on, mine were the same size no bushing.

Guess if I can ride the wheels of this thing some day I might have to buy a new pair or repair them if I wear out the bolt hole.

Sure are sweet looking, I like the black as they look like they could have been stock with a little zing added.

No bushings in mine, only had to use the brass bushing from mine, for the clutch lever where it engages the rod for the clutch master cylinder.

Thanks Joe mine were the same as yours.

First day of riding and I like the way the lever is a little wider in the fingers.

My hands are not what I would call large for being 6 foot tall. I have my clutch on the closest setting, and seems to work for me someone with small hands might find it doesn't adjust as close as they would like, brake is about middle adjustment.

Okay, got mine in Friday and they mounted up in 10 minutes just fine.  Same thing regarding the use of the brass bushing.  No brass bushing for the actual pivot.  These seem a little more wobbly that the real pazzos I had, but I don't have that bike anymore so it could be in my head  ::)  It's hard to explain, but the adjustable pivot is further out on the lever compared to the original levers and seems to change the clutch engagement point, not just the reach to the levers.  Overall I'm very happy with my $25 investment  ;D.

Mine are a little wobbly too. The brake more than the clutch. I went back and tightened the lever's screws and improved it a bit. Really don't notice the wobble when riding and they seem secure enough.
