Lever Question

On the long list of mods Id like to slap on the GSXR is aftermarket clutch and brake levers. But heres my question: I notice that OEM levers have lots of vertical play(up and down). Do aftermarket levers do away with that freeplay and tighten the levers up?

the plastic bushings wear out in time and cause the up and down play you're talking about. even an oem replacement would eliminate that

get a shim kit from somewhere and shim between the lever and lever housing, it will remove that play. After market are nice, are they worth the money, maybe not(depends on who you ask), but I will always buy Pazzo's from my bikes.

I've had good experience with both the Pazzos and CRGs, and yes, they eliminate much of the sloppiness in the lever.

Just had Javi slap a pair of CRGs on mine. Not enough play to bother me. Feel great. Heard good things about the Pazzo's too.
