Including the color scheme! ;D

Here you go...
Pazzo levers and Throttlemeiser ends.
I have PAZZO shorty levers on my C14, I like them much better than stock.

Thanks for the pic's Tim
Very helpful
I like 'em!
Levers look short because of the bar weights/Throttlemeiser, to me
The grips relative to lever ends look ok

Question?
Once adjusted, do you really need to change the lever offsets?
Kinda big adjustment levers, but I get the bling thing?
I'd prefer plain, socket or phillips head. If it had a plain head, you could use a dime to adjust.
MOB has a good point
I don't lend my bikes out and I don't see the needed adjustment. Thicker riding gloves? I don't know.

I've been using shorties on my last 3 bikes and they work great for me.

I did go with Fleabay knockoffs this time around but will more than likely replace them with Pazzo if I ever get around to it.

If you're not sure about the shorties try the $20 knockoffs. I't a cheap way to see if you'll like them before investing $100 plus bucks. You can always resell them or just give them to someone else who can continue to pass them along for others to try. :motonoises: :beerchug:

I ordered the chinese knock offs, these will extend or make short and they fold up should you drop the bike.

Now, if I ever get the damn things as I ordered them July 13th and sayd deliver might be Aug 31.  I won't ever order from China again, Taiwan is like two weeks, What the hell is it with China, on some boat in the ocean still

From what I understand, race bikes use the adjusters to compensate for brake fade, on the fly.

For street bikes, I think it's more a looks thing.  And it does make it easy to adjust the lever pull.

I have the same Pazzo lever's as Chris D. Love em and wouldn't go back. I always switch my bikes levers to Pazzo. Been using them for a long time. Very well made and can do full pull without pulling all way back to bar. Work very well for quick shift as the pull is shorter.
Nothing is worth doing unless you're over doing it!!!

Talked to SoloMoto before I purchased this set. My question pertained to the pivot bore. Was the bore "sleeved"? Brass or bronze?
I was told it, the bore, was a brass sleeve/bushing. Unfortunately it is drilled/reamed into the billet, no sleeve/bushing, just hard anodize.
BTW-OEM brake/clutch levers are sleeved but minimally lubed.
Installation was 10 minutes. Very good quality pieces albeit no sleeve/bushing
