Ive heard a lot of mixed opinions on these things.

some have cited instances where the lever would bind and stick in place because of a fitment issue.

I've had one brake lever disassemble itself on the road, not cool
Had another wear out the cam adjuster, so that it won't stay adjusted

They are hit and miss

Like most other things some are decent quality and others bind up or self destruct.
IMO you can buy Motozens for $139.99 for the set and they're American made and work / fit properly.

I wouldn't put them on any of the bikes you've listed. You've already spent so much money on bikes why not get some nice ones.

Got a set for $60 for the Z1000 off of eBay.

Fitment was great, and they work flawlessly.

The only issue is I purchased the black anodized, and after spending some time in the sun, the colors are changing. Would this happen with the Pazzo? Not sure, but it doesn't bother me too much.

It hasn't happened to my black Pazzo levers yet, which have been on the bike for 4-5 years.

Yea these are only 7 months old, and gets parked in the garage! Its only a slight discoloration thus far.

$60 and functions good though, I guess I can't complain!
