I bought new adjustable cnc levers from Ebay.

turned out to be very nice and high quality, so I was pleasantly surprised.

Much cheaper than pazzo too...

Tried out new levers today

They work exceedingly well, two fingers only.......
Have them set on lowest setting with fat grips and gloves.

I had some ebay levers on my CB. They worked perfectly well, but the anodizing went south in a couple of months. Black to a strange copper color. I actually like the 800ADV levers. They're adjustable, not like a lot, but they are comfortably shaped.

Honestly, until I see evidence to the contrary, paying $200 bucks or whatever for a couple of ounces of CNC aluminum seems kinda crazy when the chinabay option is available.

when adjusted as short as possible, would you say they are "as short" as a "regular" shorty lever?

Yeah, pretty much.

They are definitely shorter than OEM, and I had normal shortys on for a while as well, have not noticed these to be any longer...

Per.

Pazzo levers, had several sets of them on bikes the last few years. Wife just had hers installed on new 2014 F800GS, and I ordered them on my 2015 F800GSA.

Sure, you can buy cheaper levers, but you get exactly what you pay for. I love my bikes, and refuse to put cheap "Chinese knock offs" on anything important. I have seen what it looks like when they bind and fail in an emergency braking application. No thank you.

The guy that owns Pazzo bought my buddies F800gs from him two years ago. I prefer to buy quality and local when I can. Also, have not had any color fade problems like I have seen on other brands.

If anyone wants to buy stock levers, I have one (soon two) sets available for sale.


All who wander are not lost.
