Adjustable, shorty levers

Has anyone here fitted SUITABLE aftermarket, shorty adjustable clutch and brake levers to the F series bikes ?
.
I like the look of the ASV and CRG, but have not found an application guide claiming fitment to our F-twins... Any others I should look at ?

JPR Performance. Excellent combination of quality and price.

I bought shorties from ebay for my 800GS.
What is wierd is I have used shorties, or cut the levers on every bike I've had for the last 25 yrs,
except I don't like them short on my BMW, or Multistrada!
Sooo... I have new shorties for the BMW800GS.
If you wanna see pictures of them, I'll take tomorrow and email to you.
If you like what you see, we can make some simple arrangements through PM!

I have the Wunderlich on the clutch -- adjustable -- seems ok. Put it on to help with reach, which it does, but clutch cable travel is less than stock, so proper adjustment is critical.

Thanks for the heads up. This is a great way to see if I like them for cheap.

Thanks DPM. I had previously bought some cheap ones on ebay that purportedly worked on the F800 but in fact did not. Thanks for the recommendation.

Short levers

I was having problems with reach, particularly the clutch hand, with thicker grips and winter gloves.
Fitted these eBay levers ($25.00) today, test ride tomorrow, and I'll let you know how they go.

I did JPRs too. I used to sell Pazzos when I had my little shop and they are definitely a good product. I just felt like I might as well try the JPR at half the price and have had no issues. I ordered on ebay from JPR and did the Make and Offer option.
