Hello - From Sugar Land/Alief

The other one has more movement of a clutch control than a squeeze ball.

But hey, whatever float ya boat.

shorty levers helps with this, plus you'll get used to it after thousands of miles.

Depends. Do you mind quality or just care if it works? Ebay/Chinese stuff works. 20-40$ . ASV, CRG, etc name brands... 100-200$. They all work. Quality depends on the price.

Huh shorty levers increases the effort you have to pull. You lose the leverage the shorter you go

I have been using flebay levers and they work just fine. The quality showed though but what kind of finishes do you expect from a $40 levers.

One thing I gotta say, get the foldable ones if you can and pick a lighter color suck as titanium or silver bc other colors such as red and black will fade under the sun.

I have ebay ones. Works fine. But has play and have to tighten screws every so often.. asv's have less play and just feels snug.

yes I know how leverage and fulcrum works. I meant she doesn't have man hands and it'll be hard reaching the levers in the first place, so the shorter the levers, the easier. gigitty

make sure it's for your model bike and if not sure, ask the seller first. it's a pain returning overseas items that aren't even worth much in the first place.
the ebay seller username I bought mine is saveyourbuy
