Hey guys - I just got my set of Pazzo Racing levers last night and installed them. LOVE THEM!!

This is a great mod not only for looks, but for control as well. Ive found that the levers just FEEL better in my hands. I think it has to do with the way they are cut - instead of being rounded on the leading edge like the stock ones are, they are more squared, allowing you to gain a better grip on them. Both levers are also fully adjustable, whereas on the stock ones only the brake lever is adjustable.

I bought them from Performance Moto on eBay. They were $179.99 with free shipping, and they even throw in a free pair of gel grips! Gonna put those on this weekend... You can even choose what colors you want for the levers AND the adjusters! I got black with orange adjusters for my white/orange 2010.

Wish I had the capability to post pics - but sadly, I dont.

why cant you post pics? its pretty easy to post them online. just upload the pics to a free hosting site like flickr, photobucket, imageshack, etc..... then copy the link and post it here. id really love to see how they look on your bike.

Pazzo levers are fantastic - had 'em on my last bike and they make a big difference in comfort. I think the next set of levers I get will be from CRG. I love their mirrors and they're made in the USA. Couldn't hurt!

The levers you'll see on eBay for around $60 are Chinese knockoffs of dubious quality. Those may be just fine, but I've seen several reports of sloppy/loose fit, which causes rattling/vibration. No thanks.

it's funny when I first saw them I thought they were just bling. I liked the way looked... but after riding with them for 2 yrs on my other bike; I couldn't stand those stock ones.
they look like they were made in the 1950's. this bike is all about a modern look.

Quality is why. Those $60 levers are cheap *** knock-offs from China and I wouldnt put those on my bike if YOU paid for them.

I just got my IFX Color Series Pazzo levers in for my 2011 Ninja 1000. The levers look superb. I have a set on my 2008 Ninja 250R as well. I can't drive with full length stock levers after making the jump to shorties. Much more intuitive and comfortable once you get used to the smaller size.

Hey then - give them a shot. But everything Ive read says that they are made with sloppy tolerances, so they vibrate and cause a rattling sound. If I wanted vibrating levers that rattle, I would have stuck with the stock levers!!

Sometimes, you have to pay for quality. Sure a Lexus is just a Toyota with a different name tag on it...but the Lexus looks and feels a hell of a lot better than the Toyota.
