Pazzo levers

I've been looking into new levers and I noticed on Motomummy.com that they offer the Pazzo levers with a shorty brake and a standard length clutch option.
Is anyone running this configuration? I have to admit I never thought about doing something like this but it does make sense as I only usually use two fingers on the brake but all four on the clutch.

I went with that exact setup from MotoMummy a couple years ago and have been happy ever since. It made sense to me since I rarely use more than 1 finger on the brake.
I got black with red adjusters.

FYI, I just got both shorty Pazzos and the clutch lever has adequate room for 3 fingers.

Call me crazy but I was thinking just the opposite, shorty clutch and long brake, I would like to hold onto the left side while in traffic and have the availabilty for all four fingers on the brake in a bad situation. Any opinions on my logic would be appreciated. To LDH, do you sell online? I would rathher purchase from someone with a good rep. Thanks.

Well the issue is the clutch on most bikes (whether cable or hydraulic) is stiff enough that you need the extra leverage of a longer lever to help alleviate fatigue while the new model brake master cylinder on most current machinery is more than ample with a mere 2 finger method...

Yes we sell online or you can call us for that personal attention

Excellent price. how do the "long" lengths compare to the stock levers? I'm warming up to the idea of shorty brake, long clutch.
Is the shop still in the same place in Sand City?

I only really started riding again last Aug. after a 5 yr hiatus, only made it through hawks nest and high point 4 or 5 times, looking forward to many next season. I'll have to look up bear mtn... Maybe we'll meet on the road this year.

I'd be very interested to hear everyone's opinion on Pazzo, CRG, and ASV levers, I'm looking to buy before the weather breaks.

You can't go wrong with any of these levers. All are top quality. Everyone who replies will tell you the ones he is using are the best. Flip a coin they are all good.
