Shorter levers? - November 12, 2007, 12:08 AM

I'm looking for shorter levers both in length and reach for my 05 R6. I've seen Pazzos and others but I was wondering if there are any cheaper alternatives.

I figure the levers don't need to be adjustable if they fit right/better to begin with.

Thanks,
Hugh

Shorter levers require to use 3-4 fingers if the glove is too big. I've learned to use 2, just practice thats all it takes. motomummy has them for $159 that is cheap.

They sure are nice but I really couldnt justify spending $160 on levers, so on my old R1 I heated and bent them in a vise until they were where I liked them. Buffed out the scuffs from the vise and then shot them with some black paint. I love the look and feel of Pazzo levers but this only cost me.... nothing.

On my TL I have a Moose shorty clutch perch and lever.
Its pretty adustable. Nice and short. Cost me $30 and new levers (if ever needed) are like $10.


mine doenst have a hot start lever.

Now my brake lever is way too long...
I was planning on bending it to fit like my R1 levers, then cutting the end ball off and reconnecting it to a shortened lever.

"reconnect" it you say? Yeah I really want to try this...

They have a product just like it at Harbor Freight. From what I've read about the stuff its just an Aluminum brazing rod. You use a propane tourch and it works pretty well. The joint is supposed to be stronger than the material itself. Whatever just as long as it doens't break off in my hand, I'll be happy.

Then I plan on powdercoating everything. Total cost... $20? maybe $30 cause I need to buy some more powder coating powder.

I'll keep y'all posted on my projects.
