I like a short brake and a long clutch because the long clutch gives better leverage when constantly clutching through traffic. I've got ASVs on my RC51 and Pazzos on my S1000RR. They're all pretty much the same, but I feel like the ASVs have a stronger finish on them and they feel more comfy to me. Also, the C5 levers come with a 5 year guarantee that if they break they'll replace them for free. That includes if you wad up your bike. Whichever you choose, just remember to grease the fittings and make sure the fitment is good before you take it out for a ride (i.e. make sure your brakes/clutch aren't dragging, not too much free play, etc)

I've had multiple cheap ebay ones. They work, and they look great. They don't fold or anything, but I like them.

It's probably not a great idea to go with a shorty clutch lever being that the 954 has a cable clutch (stiff). Going with a shorty lever will multiply the stiffness of the already stiff clutch.

I run the ASV shorties on both sides. The adjustability with them is Awesome! Like Raylee said though. I wish I would have went with the longer clutch lever.....

It is funny, I can easily two finger pull the stock clutch levers, but there's not enough room for my ring finger behind the lever with the shorty levers to two finger pull it.
