hello guys!!i am in the middle of an order for several goodies for my fighter!!!
i have made a decision for the sliders/plate holder/grips/clutch slave cylinder etc but i can seem to make up my mind on th levers!!!

first of all i am thinking that i shouldnt buy short levers like the asv ones cause the clutch will get too hard for every day use in traffic. (yes i ride the bike alot and i find traffic many times!)

i really like the crg folding levers that are not too long but not as short as the short levers but i have some thoughts about the aerodynamics.

the MW short folding levers have the same length as the crg, i dont like them as much but they have a hole at the tip which make the aerodynamics of the lever better...same goes for the rizoma ones...i like them more but then again...they are toooooo long! :p

help me out here what do you think? are the aerodynamics so important?
i read that extensive wind tunnel studies have shown that at speeds above 180 km per hour, the force of the air causes movement of the
lever, which puts the hydraulic circuit under pressure, limiting the bike’s performance...

here i have some pics so that you see the levers!!

hey emax!!i have seen your fighter, looks great btw!i hope you dont mind i used your photos!!

how about the clutch pull? is there a big difference?i like the crg folding ones better i think, hey are a bit longer and maybe more comfortable?

i read in a forum that the crg colors tend to whear out, is that true? has anyone used them more than a year to have a clear view on the issue?

i used the asv shorties on my kawasaki. great stuff, but they are too short for the fighter!i dont like the long ones so much i think!!

come on people, lets vote, which one do you like better??!! :-D

Hi cts the clutch pull is not much different from stock and i like the feel of it right now as i just put them on i also like that i can adjust the lever a lot more than the stock ones. I haven't heard of the color wearing out but only time will tell.:rolleyes:

I have the CRG clutch and brake levers - and in addition an MPL clutch slave cylinder. The difference for the clutch pull is amazing an well worth the investment. Don't forget to adjust the levers once you install them!

I also had an MPL on my S4Rs and an Evoluzione on my 1098 Tri., the Oberon in my opinion is the lightest and waaay cheaper. Moto Wheels got them.

The levers have extendable end tips so you can have short-long lever, I'm not sure about the ends color combos but I know they come also with Ducati on the brake lever and Streetfighter on the clutch lever option, you just can't get them without writing.
Also, if you have a Q, this seller is very good, they answer right away, they're a Ducati dealer in Modena, Italy, I was very pleased with them.

I have Pazzo levers on my bike. I chose black with red adjusters, which look great on my red SFS. They are available as shorty or standard levers, with a breakaway notch. They fit easily and precisely, and are very nice to use. Highly recommended.

Sssit! I knew it!
The ones with the streetfighter logo I know of because I contacted the seller and asked them about the choices otherwise I havn't seen a pic.
I wish I knew about the all black ones, I would have shoosen them over mine.

I have the long version on both clutch and brak lever - I'm not a fan of shorties...
If I recall correctly the MPL is 30mm - The OBERON is also a nice piece and will work similar. Can't go wrong replacing the original slave cylinder with an OBERON or MPL.
