Has anyone done a replacement of their clutch lever for a shorter item? I have a broken lever presently, and if anything I wish it was another inch shorter so I could just use my index and middle finger to pull it in.

Any recommendations or cautions are much appreciated.

I just used a hack saw, then cleaned up the wounds with a dremel tool. I had to do this to get my hand protectors to mount up.


Or you can cheat and buy some. But, that would be paying for sex when it could be obtained for free. The satisfaction in the end will be similar.

I have a Zeta clutch perch and 3 finger lever on the DRZ. I am sure it would be a very nice addition to the Strom as well. Pricey, but sweet. :thumbup:

What's the advantage of the Pazzo levers if you are going with a stock length?

Also, what is the advantage of the Pazzos to the tune of two hundred bones? :yikes:

Looks and performance on the longer levers, and on all their levers, Quality Control.

On my last trip to Asia I sat on the plane next to the "Plant Supervisor" for the Bow Flex Gym people. Plant Supervisor was code for being responsible for seeing the material received was actually same as speced and ordered all the and not being substitute in the plant as well as from suppliers,

There are few standards enforced so even when aluminum is stamped a certain grade you can't be sure without continuous testing,

A real eye opener.

Here's the features list for the Ride-It levers. I have a pair and find no fault with the description. Properly program a CNC machine and it will knock out precision quality parts from billet with no problem. $62 a pair.
Features:
* Machined CNC Billet 6061 T6 Aluminum
* 6 Position Lever Adjustment stainless steel fasteners
* Precision Machined Pivot Bore To Ensure A Perfect Fit
* 7075 Type 3 Black Anodized Cam Block For Improved Longevity
* Custom Cadmium Plated Springs & Brass Pivot Bushing
* Stainless Steel Hardware

A lot of Strom owners have them and as well as what look to be the same units from other sources, some much cheaper, and couldn't be happier.

Good deal on levers from china

CRG Roll-A-Click

I hated how the long levers felt. Beside the OEM levers bumped the Acerbis aluminum hand guard frames forcing the lever to be "exposed" and susceptible to breaking (see pic below).

The CRG Roll-A-Click levers in "shorty" length come in many color combos and are wonderful feeling. Mine are charcoal gray with red clickers:
