Pazzo clutch lever "sticking"

Part 1: I got a set of Pazzo's for my DL1K and the Wifey's Wee. Initally I didn't have a problem, but after 200 miles, the ball on the clutch lever on the 1K started to bump the handguard. Later it would actually interfere enough to hold the level in and I could let go and it would stick.

Easy to fix, I "Dremeled" out the plastic of the guard and problem was solved.

Part 2: I got a set of handguards for the Wifeys Wee and the clutch lever adjustment lever would rub on the top of the guard. Out came the "Dremel" again. Problem solved.

No problem on my stock lever. Plus you get it for free when you buy the bike!

Thumbs up Pazzo vs Stock

As it turns out, the handguard at the end had started to come out from under the bar weight. Still, why the Pazzo hits it and the stock doesn't is a bit unnerving.
