Found these on ebay. FOLD-EXTEND LEVERS HONDA CBR250RR MC19 MC22 CBR250 - eBay (item 260698605140 end time Dec-25-10 19:57:05 PST) They would remove the decision of whether to get the shorty or the standard length. I wouldn't worry about them breaking under use. My concern would be ease of installation and whether they would fit correctly.

I refuse to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

I've got a set coming from Firedragonbrothers off of Ebay ($45 bucks shipped) after I heard other guys on the ZRX board raving about em. Those guys are very picky and I didn't hear one negative thing about the Chinese levers from anybody who put em on their rex. I'll let ya know how they work. I'll probably end up getting a set for my 9'er as well. I wouldn't mind paying a little more for American quality and manufacturing...but not 3 and 4 times the price.

I know this is old thread, but I was just wondering how your china levers are holding up? I broke my clutch lever and was thinking of giving the china ones a shot.

What about these: ASV LEVERS F3 SET HONDA CB 919 2002-2006 - eBay (item 260684891854 end time Jan-27-11 12:39:08 PST)


They fold in case of a wreck. Look to be decent, yet still pricey.

Oh! And if you break it, they replace it. Quoted from the auction: "Guaranteed Not To Break
All ASV levers include a guarantee against breakage. That's right, you break your ASV lever, we replace it! No charge, No catch, No excuses. If you break your ASV lever, we will fix it or replace it. If you are not happy with your lever for any reason, we will do what ever it takes to make you happy. We have the best guarantee in the business and back it up in writing. No other lever manufacturer offers this incredible guarantee. Customer service is our top priority. We are not satisfied until you are completely happy with our product."

I was just wondering more about being able to get back on the bike and ride it after a spill.

Unless you carry spare levers in your road kit, these might be worth the extra $ for the cost. Plus, they replace them if they do get broken.

They are gorgeous and have nice adjustability but............

I actually find them kinda big and clunky. Wish they were a little lighter with a better contour. Also, the shortys aren't nearly as short as I would like...

Oh, and where the hell did you get them for $115 shipped??

ASV Levers are the BEST. You can get them for the same price as the Pazzo's. I paid $199.00 for them and the quality is wayyyyyyyyy better than the Pazzo's. I had the real Pazzo's and compared to the knock off's there really isn't much difference besides the price. My advice is get the ASV's if you want top notch levers. $199.00 at motomummy with free shipping and a free pair of grips as well.

Actually I just checked their website and they are now offering free adjusters with a set of levers. They were only offering the free grips when I purchased mine a couple of years ago.

I bought a cheap set of Chinese levers, I am really surprised in the increased ease of use. It is so much easier to use the clutch and I have been using the front brake with one finger no problems. I wanted adjustable levers to bring the clutch lever in closer. Good value for money but not the best quality.

Just put on a pair of black ASV shortys and like them. Bought them from MotoMummy for $200 shipped. Two complaints though: 1. White ASV logos a bit garish, 2. Should have bought longer clutch lever. I have smallish hands and the lever travel to engage the clutch is a little long.

The chinese should start knocking off the ASV's. I like the rounder ASV lever profile than the Squarish pazzo style.

I am one of those picky ZRX owners...ive had knockoffs on mine for the last 8 years and have them on my Honda 919 and my FZ1 and have never had a problem with any of them...as for longevity i had a set on for 6 years with no problems...your results may vary

I had the gold ones and after one summer they looked super pale. I'd get black or silver if you were getting one.

I just bought these

i wanted the breakpoint knotch at the end, its worked for me before. Then I saw those with folding and breakpoint. additionally you could see in the pics that the clutch line has a proper slot. the last pair i had did not have a horizontal slot for the cable to be in when you pulled in the clutch. this lead to a broken clutch cable. I was skeptical of the ridges on the levers, but i've found i like them, they don't irritate me they actually help stop your fingers from sliding.
spending 200 on levers is nuts. i'll be quite happy with these.. and if they fade or anything you can re-buy them 4 times before they come close to the cost of fancy levers.

I might be able to get an extension just for you guys if there was any interest.

So how about that extension?...

To dig up an OLD thread. I've had the Chinese knockoff Pazzo levers on my VFR for a couple years. The black has faded to nice bronze color, but otherwise function just fine.

They did hold up in a crash (if one can call dropping the clutch at redline and watching the bike flip through the air).



I was hoping to get a set of ASV F3 levers, but it seems like everyone who had any is out of stock... motomummy had the price slashed quite a bit which makes me think they are ending production on them...

We no longer are a distributor for CRG, might have some replacement levers if those are 100% CRG copies, but I doubt I have the full perch assembly for any Honda's left in stock.

The knock-off and real crgs are interchangeable. I had to use a fake perch to fit a real crg before that had a 900rr perch. There's a slight vertical play compared to the real ones but functionality is 100%

I've put a pair of $20 levers on my bike. I've never used shorty levers before and didn't know if they suited me. Picked up a pair of cheap levers to try out before dropping big dollars. The fit and finish on these cheap levers is good. I had to move the lever/mirror mounts in as far as they would go to get a proper two finger grip.
They work well and I like using two fingers a lot. I will keep an eye out for some ASV on sale now. I hope they come in black and silver. I don't like the red adjuster look. I see the chinese are now making a ASV knockoff with the adjuster as a wheel not a lever.

Not going to lie, I dig that bronze look; even if it wasn't intended.

I swapped out my short levers for slightly different type. These I like more. They have a roller style adjuster. Slightly longer so a three finger or full hand grip is comfortable. Also the knob on the end is flat, level with the back of the lever. For me this is an improvement over the other as that knob would hit my pinky when using it. They fitted up well and I'm really enjoying using a two finger action.
