Has anyone ever used these levers???

They are adjustable in length and if you drop your bike they can move 90 degrees up and not break. But are they any good?

My guess is without some loctite those bolts aren't gonna hold well over time. Go with Pazzo or ASV.



and don't lower your bike.

Then why even care/mention about that. Honestly, though, do any name brand levers have adjustments like that? Not that I have seen, but I could be wrong. Usually cheap, no name, generic eBay is just that, .

i use CRG levers on my cbrRR.
the brake lever is a shorty, the clutch is normal length, but it folds up and has a nifty little adjustment feature for the cable.,
i would be a little wearing of using ebay knockoffs for my levers.

i have never had any shorty levers nor the brand name kind but i bought these cheap ebay levers cause if figured what the , only $50. Worth the gamble!! I wouldn't say they are as good as the brand name ones because i have never used them but they are a of a lot better than the factory ones. If you like, you can come and see them in person. They are cnc machined cut and don't seem or feel cheap. Overall, i like them and until i can afford two hundred dollar levers, i will keep these on my bike. just my .02!! oh yeah, shipping was fast. They come from china i think...
hope this helps..

I am not saying eBay levers won't work. But I can tell you anyone that I know that got eBay levers and laid there bike down, do you know what happens to those levers. They break almost anytime they hit the ground. CRG, Pazzo, ASV, I can't recall seeing any of those break.

if you're going to get knock offs, you might as well get the $50 ebay knock offs. for the price of the set shown above, you can buy 3 sets.

those are $150, so you might as well spend a little extra and get the name brands.

if they're anything like the crg levers, they're probably designed to take quite a bit of force to bend them upwards.
