I have a set on the Ducati that are similar.
Cheap shorty levers off amazon. They work fine.
From my research a couple years ago, most of the complaints were about color change in the anodized coating.
Many people complained the red faded to pink pretty quickly and the black faded to kind of a brown.

I went with silver and have no complaints. They still look and function like you'd want them to.

+1. I bought some off of Ebay. If you can wait, you can save a few bucks. They work fine. Only thing I had to do was tighten the hinge just above the adjustment lever, as there was a bit of slop.

I bought the ebay type for my FZ and the clutch lever was very sloppy. I ended up pulling them and got some expensive CRGs and love them. I gave the ebay one's to a buddy for his FZ and he said they were just fine for him.

They work pretty well. Here's a buddy of mine that's started his own business. His levers are pretty sweet.

look similar to CRV knock off fold up levers I got off fleabay. look cool and function well, but have not tried crash testing yet. I think I paid like 50 or 60 bucks and took about 2 weeks to arrive from across the pond.

bought a $23 pair for my 09 cbr600 a few months back and still have them on to this day, definitely a nice upgrade from the stock levers. Just note they will have some wiggle when they are installed, its normal.

i have used them on previous bikes and liked them enough to order a set for my lil' duke. waiting on them now.

from my exp so far, amazon parts are usually a good deal. USUALLY.
i just got my bar end mirrors in today. they look like good quality... only, the bolt that goes in the handlebar is too big.

When they first came out I remember people were replacing the screws for higher quality ones from the local store.


I have heard good stuff about the rear sets as well

I have some on the shiver. Only flaw for me is I have to push out on the lever for the gear indicator to register.

I bought a set of of $200+ (for got how much extra for the candy color version) Pazzo levers for my ZX10r. Ended up buying a set off of ebay for my sons 250r. I usually avoid buying from Hong Kong if I can but figured for his bike. He just needed some adjustable black ones. Paid around $35 for them with free shipping. I was impressed with them when I compared to the Pazzo levers. Pazzo probably has the same company machine them.

This is the only worry I have about the cheaper levers. This is a new post, but I've heard other similar horror stories with poor machining on the brake levers in particular.
