im trying to compare the speed metals from cycle gear to the non adj. ones i have now.

and then compare the speed metals to asv's or pazzos. the most important comparison im looking for is: am i going to feel a difference in what i have now( i know the adjustability part theres a diff.) but in brake feel and i going to feel a difference.

Any adjustability is a plus; since the throw is controlling how far the cylinder is compressed.

Less pull, less pressure, less brake... and the opposite...

The Pazzo's are assume. I've been using them for years. You have alot more adjustability on them over stock and they just feel nice and light in your hands. Hard to explain the feel, but when you feel them you will think your stock is junk. Plus you can get them in custom colors.

order by phone and if you say you're from r6-forum, they're $150 (supposedly $200 retail) offer ends today.

http://www.r6-forum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=116590

im assuming theres a similar promo on other forums as well.


i've had pazzos in the past and currently own fp racing levers. definitely love the adjustability over standard levers. i like my levers adjusted closer, although they're more effective when adjusted farther out

If you want nice levers get some Pazzos. Got my pazzos sometime back through MotoMummy on R6Forums and they were about the same price.

nm. saw op already picked up some levers.

i have to agree with you though, i put off getting the pazzos for sometime thinking its just levers how big of difference can it really make, but once i got them on i was wishing i had bought them ages ago, they are much more comfortable.
