I've heard Pazzo and CRG. Both expensive though- $125-160 each side!

You can't go wrong with either the Pazzos or the CRG's. Chris just put the Pazzos on his R1 and they're awesome, he loves them.

You can get pazzo's for $160 a pair... CRG's are like $100 or so more... There's another brand that's name escapes me... AST or something... those look killer and have an 'unbreakable' warranty... I know they are pricey though...

$160 a pair sounds a lot more reasonable, but still awfully steep.

I was wondering what the advantage was for installing shorty levers. Are they primarily for aesthetics? Are they more comfortable? Quicker maybe? It just seems like little bang for the buck if the only thing gained was a change in appearance. I was wondering if there was something more to it than just looks.

Adjustability for preference of where you like your lever to be from the bars and ones like ASV and CRG have folding levers so they don't break off at impact.

ASV also has adjustments to the mm rather than a click at a time

Pazzo's. Best bang for the buck IMHO

fold up, warranty, better adjustments

if you are after a cosmetic mod though, pazzos because they offer more pretty colors

When you only use two fingers to brake and clutch, what's the point of the longer lever?

yeah, if you're still using all 4 fingers for the gears you need to reconsider your riding ability.
