pazzo,

for looks, strength and the shape. I like the shorty levers since I only use two fingers, the way they curve puts them right where I want them, plus they are adjustable. Being short also means they will be less likely to touch the ground or just bearly on top of being stonger means they hold up in crashes very well. I have tested them.

YOu can get pazzos in lots of colors for about 160 a pair.

^^^^^^^^^^those are pazzo levers.

You dont really need rearsets on the street, they are just 300-500 bling items. They wont really make riding more comfortable either.

They may allow you to adjust the lever farther out. On my bike I have to shim the cheapo levers to get it where I want. I've been told aftermarket levers may remedy this.

I've never understood them except the looks. My factory levers have taken a beating(sadly) and are only scraped up on the tip, they've never bent at all.

I've got both Pazzos and CRGs, they both crash well. Motorcycles Unlimited can fix you up with either one.

I think this is the biggest part to your question about levers and rear sets.

the major difference IMO is that they are adjustable ... that way, you dont have them too close to your knuckes or too far out of reach for people with short fingers!
It helps my clutching to be a little smoother.

vortex or woodcraft are great rearsets, arata also do not crash well, as far as rearsets go.
