Pazzo vs CRG

I have a couple nOObish questions:

1. Is there a big difference between the 2 makers? I know both are reputable but is it just rider/owner preference? (i'm leaning on Pazzo since it's cheaper)

2. What advantage does a shorty lever have over a standard length lever? (I'm about to install bar-ends on my R6 but I think shorty levers will look off with the bar ends installed)

I know some riders that go shorty for the brake, and full length for the clutch.

As far as the difference, I would say it's personal preference. I love my Pazzos!

There is a distinct difference in the finish between the 2.

I've seen the finish on both firsthand. I'm prolly gonna order the Pazzo's (standard length) since they have the color combo I want

yeah, shorties usually won't snap off when you crash (depending on how you crash of course)....

but dont get the shorty lever if you like to use all your fingers to clutch/brake.

i have CRG's (reg length) on my bike...crash tested twice as well...still fully functionable...just a little scraped up.

I have the full length CRGs and like 'em just as well as stockers I guess. They do look good though, and the adjust ability is kinda cool.

I don't use the shorties because I like to use 4 fingers for the clutch and with hard braking. Normally (as all my track pics seem to indicate...) I brake with one finger though... I guess it's just a feeling with me.

I've crash tested both Pazzo and CRG with the same result....just a little scratched.

I like them both, and they're both available in short and standard lengths.

For my money though I'd go with the Pazzos, IMO.

They're less expensive, and you have a choice of color combos that you can't get with the CRGs.

PM me for a price quote, I'll make you a smoking deal on them.

I have only used Pazzo's. They are built very well, crash very well, certainly worth the money.
