Default ? for F4i owners with Pazzo, CRG, etc. levers

Something I've ran across on F4i clutch levers is that the stock lever has a slight downward bend between the cable attachment slot/hole and where your fingers go. I've bought aftermarket levers that were listed to fit an F4i, but were straight and didn't have the downward bend. These straight levers make the clutch lever sit higher in relation to the hand grip and clip on, making it awkward to get hold of and use. Pic below of the bend in a stock style lever.

For you that have Pazzo or any another brand of adjustable levers my question is.....Do your aftermarket adjustable levers locate the clutch lever in same position relative to the grip/clip on as the stock levers? Pics of the aftermarket levers on the manufacturers and vendors websites don't show the bend and they never show an actual pic of an F4i with their levers anyway.

have you tried loosening the whole cuff that is attached to the clip-on and rotating it up??

Most people spin the clutch and brake assemblies to fit them.

I've loved my Pazzo's since the first moment I bolted them on. Never noticed the bracket needing any adjustment.

Exactly my thoughts. It's a 5 minute fix.

The way that the F4i lever bracket is made, a straight clutch lever would pull over top of the grip instead of to the center line of the grip. Rotating to different angles would not correct it. The slight downward bend in the lever centers it.

I believe ID_CBRRider has answered my question though if he didn't notice it. It is very noticeable and awkward.

Ive got some Psr's I will check them out when I get home to see if they have the bend, but I didn't notice anything awkward about them and everything was left alone.

They may not have the bend, but just as long as they're made so when the clutch is pulled, the lever hits center of the handle bar grip. I would like to assume that they work like the stock lever, but I don't want to part with $180 without knowing for sure.

Thanks
