Pazzo Levers and Woodcraft Clipons :)

Put on some Pazzo shorty levers (black with black tabs), woodcraft 3 piece clipons, progrip 998 grips, and bar end weights this weekend. Let me tell you the clipons and the levers especially are TOP NOTCH. When Pazzo says PRECISION machined, they really mean it. TIGHT tolerances. And a bent clipon will just cost a $12 replacement woodcraft bar now instead of replacing the whole stock piece of chit. Also, removal doesn't require disassembling the entire triple tree. Really slick pieces. Not to mention they look hottttt.

Here's some pics.

The pazzos are about 160 a set, the clipons are 140.

I had a bent clutch lever and left clipon though, so I figured now was the time to do it. VERY much worth the money. Real quality chit.

I espcially like the shorty levers. Real comfortable, the adjustable reach puts them right where you want them, and the two finger action is very natural. It's proper form to use two fingers anyways. (insert inappropriate joke here )

Looks good


I am thinking about the Pazzo Levers myself. I just got my Motivation frame sliders in the mail. How do you like the bar ends? Do you think they make a big difference? Where did you buy them?

Yeah I've been busy lately and was mad about it so I didn't post up about it.

I had a stupid tipover that slid a little bit down the drive. Not cool. I don't want to talk about it, I'm still ing.

Frame and swingarm slider did their job very well. Got a couple parts from a guy on another forum I'm on and have pretty much killed all trace that it happened. Just trying to forget it in my head now

The pazzos are a SOLID purchase. I highly recommend them. Not much to say but they are AWESOME.

I got the weighted bar ends just to dampen vibrations since I've heard aftermarket clipons often yield a lot of vibration. They seem to be fine, no more vibration than stock setup. These bar ends are the kind that you insert into the end of the clipon, and then as you tighten the screw a rubber piece on the end of the bar end expands inside the clipon until it makes a tight fit. (aftermarket clipons are hollow and don't have a spot to screw in a bar slider) As far as if weighted bar ends would help your stock clipons, I don't know . I forget the brand they were, but they are easy to find for about 10 bucks.

The progrip 998's are very nice grips. Far stickier than the stock grips. I like 'em.

As I said before the design of the woodcraft clipons is fantastic. Totally solid, but still modular to ease in bar replacement and clipon removal. I'd recommend these especially if your bike has clipons that attach underneath the triple tree and/or especially if you have a damaged clipon. Will make things easier for you in the future / next time.

I was going to just order all of this stuff from kneedraggers, but the girl at my local dealership offered to price match on anything I wanted to buy, and since I was buying a bunch of gear (pics should be up tomorrow or tuesday) I figured I'd go with them. I like getting stuff there because I can try it on more easily and they price match, so hey whatever. They are about as good as dealerships can get.

Sucks you dropped it, kudos for turning it into an attractive, functional addition to the bike. They look great.

Keep an eye on them, I had a pair and the clutch lever snapped like a twig after not too long. There's a reason they sell them on ebay and not in shops. Liability.

Yea I read where you had one snap into mines worked like a charm tho and the brake lever is even adjustable like the original.
