Pazzo levers on F800GS

Well this is one of the best investments on my bike yet.
Pazzo short levers in Titanium . ( love the Bling)
Serious quality product. The feel is great , I think I will move the clutch assembly in about 1/2 inch to give me a true 3 finger operation.

I've got the short levers too and have thought about shortening the clutch lever a bit more. I use just two fingers for the clutch and still find the lever too long and being restricted a bit pinching on the fingers on the grip. Not too bad with my lighter gloves on, but now in the cold weather with heavy insulated gloves I really have to squeeze it in to get the clutch to not drag and to get the switch to close for starting. Probably doesn't help that I have big banana fingers.

I figure I may get the milling machine after it this winter and take a bit off the end then fabricate a new knob that'll fasten on. Just have to flesh out the process a bit more in my head first. Don't want to screw it up and wreck the lever.

BTW, Titanium is not bling, I went with gold levers and red adjusters

cheap replacement levers

In my dirt bike days of youth, 1970's BH (Before Handguards), I used to carry spare levers for my clutch and brake so when I inevitably broke mine out on the trail I had a replacement. Spares were cheap then, but when I decided I wanted to carry a set of replacements for my F650GS, I had a shock at the cost of the BMW levers! Pazzo and Wunderlich sure are nice, but at quite a price ($150, $165). So, tho I will likely get shite for it here, I ordered these for $37 (inc. shipping) off Amazon. Yup, they are from China:
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DNXK6FK/..._26725410_item

It took exactly a week for them to get here. I feel, for the price they look fine and function pretty nicely. I installed them to make sure they fit properly (which took 10"), which they do. I will ride secure knowing that when I break a stock lever, I can quickly replace it, even tho I have to live with the guilt of killing the Western economy!

Short levers are awesome. I put them on every bike I own except for trials bikes. I went with the JPR's for my 800GSA. 129 for the set and you can pick the color/s you want. I went with Titanium with red adjusters.

really good quality and WAY less than the Wunderlich Vario levers. I had Pazzo's on my Aprilia, they are nice levers.

I know this is a longstanding thread, but figured I would keep it together ;-)

The several brands of levers shown here are pretty awesome, but can you folks tell me which of the shorty levers for the F800GS (2014, in my case) are true 2 finger levers?

During my 45 years of dirt biking, the 2 finger levers were truly the best techno upgrade to come along

Thanks!

I have had Pazzo and Titax levers before, loved them.
On this bike I could not get the brake lever close enough to modulate easily.
I always get long clutch and short brake and I only buy knockoffs these days. Very happy with the result, went with clear anodize and gold

I put these on my '13 F800 - no fitment issues, and seem super high quality:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I've had them for ~1K miles - just be sure to use threadlocker to keep things snug.

The orange ones look amazing on the Kalamata Olive, if you're into that sort of thing...

Banya, could you by any chance post take a pic of them on the bike? They look like the right 2 finger length I desire, but seeing them on the bike would help. I have the 2014 Kalamata as well. I bought at the end of the model year looking all over California just to be able to get this color ;-)
