I didn't want you to see those on eBay and jump on them because they are cheap.

+1, in this case, as in many cases, you get what you pay for. There have been several members here that had premature clutch wear and problems launching at the strip (if that is your cup of tea). There is something wrong with the hole that is drilled for the clutch.

I would go with the good stuff, either Pazzo or ASV, but personally, I would go with Pazzo. I don't think I have ever heard of an issue with them, but I have personally seen a couple of issues with the ASV's.

yes they are drilled to small and not deep enough to release the master cylinder back to full release.. once you mod them to correct standards they work ok.. i'm not saying they great or anything but alot better than stock ..

I've got a set of the ebay levers on my ZRX and they fit fine. They must have fixed that issue. I got the extendable ones like these. You can choose and color combination you want. http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-PRO-CNC-KAWASAKI-Extendable-Clutch-Lever-ZRX1100-1200-99-07-NL117-/261023362122?pt=Motorcycles_Parts_Accessories&hash=item3cc6346c4a&vxp=mtr

I have Pazzo levers. They are very well made and yes pricey. My suggestion would be to get the long ones however vs the shorties. The long ones are still shorter than the OEM levers and for this big bike I think the shorties are, well...too short

I have the pazzo levers as well. Lots of color options and ship when stated. They are quality for sure and easy to install. I have the regular length on the clutch side and the shorty on the brake side...sounds funny but I like the setup.

I've always used Pazzos in the past but with them now being super expensive, thought I'd try some chinese ebay cheapo shitters and surprisingly they are IDENTICAL !!
Fitted perfectly and work just like the big money stuff.(street riding only)!

I have the CRG levers on mine and I like them. I had the pazzo shorties before but never really felt comfortable with them because of how short they were.

AWESOME BIKE VINCE!

I had pazzo shorties on my Busa and loved them for street riding. Never had a problem with the clutch and in fact I liked the feel better than stock even though they were short. Two fingers on the brake lever felt great too.
