Default Short levers.

I'm looking into getting rid of the factory levers on my bike and getting some shorter ones. Any particular brand or style that I should be looking for?

Just got myself ebay cheapo adjustables for my F2, they are machined suprisingly well and the quality is just as good as the "leading brands", I'm told the electroplating wears off eventually but IMO 18bucks for M-factory VS. 180 for LSL etc, not really a competition if you can get ten pairs for the price of one...

I've had nothing but good experiences with the 3 sets I've ordered of "ebay" levers. I've never been sent the wrong ones, and the quality is top notch. However, I have heard (and seen) about the anodizing on some of the colored ones fading over time. I've never bought any other color other than black or silver - and I didn't have any problems with it fading (and that was in FL sun).

I've been thinking of ordering shorty levers myself also. But I would like to know how long the levers are. I really don't want to use the clutch with just two fingers.

I wear 3xl gloves and I use 3 fingers on them.



In fact, I usually use 2 on standard levers, but it's not as comfortable to use 2 as it is 3 on the shorty levers

Thanks for the pics! Maybe I should order a pair. They really don't seem to cost too much.

You can get the longer ones as well, in the same style.

ASV FTW!!!!



You can see the front brake in the pic, but it's good to be able to only use 2 fingers on brake and clutch.

I had a set of the Pazzo levers on my old bike and I really liked them, but I didn't want to pay another $200 for levers so I picked up a set of the ebay levers back in 2010 when I got my RR and have had no issues at all. I know some people have experienced fading with theirs, but mine are still black as ever. For $30 I have no complaints.
