Pazzo Levers

Long vs short? Which do you prefer and why?

I have ASV and I prefer the short, I have smaller hands and the shorty levers just feel so much better to me.

I would go with longs.

Have you ever seen a professional racer w/ short levers? The vast majority of professional racers brake w/ 1-2 fingers and they use long levers. Seems to me if there was a benefit to running shorties they would be doing it, no?

Just a thought...

long ones, even if you use two fingers the piece of mine of having a longer lever to grip in case of an emergency is better than the looks. Pluss i use the whole hand on the clutch for initial shift and 1 to slip

I would go with long for better leverage. You never know when you would need to use more than 2 fingers. A good option is to get a brand that offers folding levers. Some have break away notches that when the lever is broken, it basically turns into a shorty allowing you to continue riding. Any lever brand is the same to me they all offer the same switchable position.

I just put a set of shorty Pazzo levers on my FZ6. Love them, only took a couple of rides to get used to two fingers. Much better "feel" with braking with them for whatever reason (maybe it's all in my head).

Long levers allow for a much better "feel" (as mentioned earlier, looks at what the pros use)

Shorties are for looks IMO, Ive ridden with both.. I like long
