It looks like it pivots the wrong way ? Is one of the black pieces upside-down ?

From the angle you took the picture it looks like it's too low/pointed downwards? Help us help you and take away the picture game

The thread title just reminds me of "ass-clutch". EVERYTHING is wrong about that:

The ambiguous nature of the OP left it wide open for a threadjack, but in an effort to get things back on track:

On the assumption that it works (It does work, doesnt it?) and the whole problem is the looks ... the reason why it looks like it does is the slot for the lever in the stock perch is too narrow for the adjustment mechanism, so they just moved it all outside. To the topologically challenged the lever does not connect directly to the cable -- the adapter does, and it holds the pivot (which actually pivots on the stock lever bolt and engages the cable) for the lever height adjustment on the ouside of the perch.

If by "wrong" you mean it seems to protrude too far past the stock perch and looks funny then your only option is to install a different lever. One upside of this is it will almost certainly cost about 1/3 to 1/4 of the $125 the ASV lever does.

Rob

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

yup, it's adjusted all the way down, too far to reach,
looks real sh!t, like you said not cheap, though brake side is beauty.
cbr perch has no mirror mount, wah wah wah. not happy.

Hmmm. I would remove everything and start over with the installation. I have the ASV levers, though my set-up looks more like Ferris Bueller's levers with your perch. Just looking at yours, it's clearly off. If reinstalling doesn't work, double-check your box to see if they sold you the right lever/mount for the 919.

Could you take a pic of your lever and post it here please? I'm curious now.

Rob is right, and i'm not impressed with the sport perch either,
though it is an improvement, what does CRG look like?
Searching. pazzo stick out alittle less. wish i looked
into this before i bought, though it was a no brainer.

Sorry, I've been away from computers for a while. I'll try to post up a pic later today, but I just checked the clearance with my hand. At the closest setting, I am at 1-3/4 inches from the grip. Measuring with my fingers, my index and middle fingers fit easily between lever and bar, but the ring finger will not. For me, that is too close. I have the adjustment set about in the middle for everyday riding.

Again, I'll try to post a pic tonight. Sorry for the delay.

OK, in the "better late than never dept.," I finally got around to shooting pics of my ASV levers. In the shots with my hand on the bar, obviously I'm not wearing a glove, and the lever is set in the middle position. I could bring it closer, but my fingers need room to come off the bar and reach over the lever. As you can see from the shot with my fingers on the lever, it's a perfectly comfortable reach for me. The lever is not depressed here at all -- just resting my fingers on it.

On another note, I'm putting the 919 up for sale, so I've reinstalled the stock levers and posted these for sale in the classifieds. PM if interested. Personally, I loved the levers and thought they looked much better than stock. But, as always, some things are a matter of personal style and taste.

hardly any room to grind after looking,
your perch is clamped on the bend, bringing it closer.
all good.
