I got the knock off pazzos, and I am very happy with them. Shipping could take up to a month, so make sure the Chinese guys know exactly what model, color, and length of lever you need.

I got them too. I've only rode with them once, as it was earlier this winter when they arrived. They felt a little uncomfortable that time, but I didn't get the clutch adjusted perfectly yet.

I bought a pair for around $50 on ebay...took about 3-4 weeks to get to my house. My first thought, having Pazzo's on my '07 r6, was the knock offs where great quality for the price! putting the knock offs and Pazzo levers side by side i could tell little differences such as bolts and nuts used seemed cheap and the operation of the adjusters on the Pazzo levers was much smoother.

For the $$ i thinks they are a great investment..be careful who you purchase the levers from on ebay...i suggest looking into seller man_20072007

I found out about him from some other members one the board who bought his levers. I was happy with the outcome.

these are the levers i purchased;


and installed...

I ordered the ones for my 2009 from this guy about a week ago. Obviously they haven't arrived yet, but I'll let you know what I think when I get them. The only thing that concerns me is his response to my email I sent after the purchase. I wanted to make sure he knew what year and color I was ordering so I made it clear it was for 2009 650R and that I wanted to make sure no modification was necessary. His response was they "should" work but he didn't know!!! :2far: HUH? I mean the heading and description states they were for 2009 and "no modification needed" and he doesn't know......great.

Yeah that's always the response from the things I've bought from Taiwan and it's never direct or even related to what I've ask!

I also bought from eBay seller man_20072007.

Overall I think the levers were very well made and fitment was close to stock. I did however had a little problem with the clutch side install but I was able to fix it in the end.

Here are a couple pics...

I've bought 2 sets of levers from this guy. Shipping was less then 10 days to my door from when I ordered them. I ordered one set from my z1000 and one set for my zx10r. No problems with this seller but always check the tightness of the nuts and bolts when U get them. All of mine were loose.

Also bought a set for my dad's GSX650f from this seller, shipping look twice as long but the product was still good. Only half of the nuts and bolts were loose.

Got the levers and installed them. Very easy and they fit nicely. On the clutch side, you will need to make sure you take off the sleave insert from the OEM lever, where the bolt goes through. It is a spacer that when you tighten the bolt, the lever snugs up nicely. Without it, the lever moves/wiggles. The shorties that I ordered did not have the spacer. I'll try to remember to take some shots tonight.

OK, here's a couple of quick shots I took in the garage. I have the hand guards on and the shorties fit nicely. If you want a shot without the guards, I can do that later in the week.

Looking good. Those are the same one's I've got my eye one, looks like that red should match well with the red rims. Thanks for the pics.
