    These are high on the wish list for my 800. We put a set on my wife's Ducati and they just feel great. I see no reason why they'd be anything other than that on any bike. Wonderful items.

    I had them on my Tiger 1050 and thought they were great. They get a thumbs up from me.

    However, I have found no need to get them for the F800GS. I am happy with the stock levers.

    Are most of you using the regular length or the shorty Pazzo levers? If you are using the shorty levers do they clear your fingers when you pull the lever to the bar? I want them mostly for off road so you can hold the bar with two fingers with the other two on the levers without squishing your fingers between the clutch and the bar.

    I have the shorty Pazzo levers, and found them to be still a little too long to fully 'two finger'. I moved both lever assemblies in by about an inch and a half to rectify and am very happy with the set up now. They feel really solid and comfortable and I would recommend them.

    I had Pazzo's on my Ducati. Shorty on the brake, standard on the clutch. I paid attention how I used them. And as it turned out 4 fingers on the clutch, two on the brake. So I went with it. Felt perfectly fine. Looking back, I could've gone with a shorty clutch lever as well, but it seemed fine the way it was.

    I'm using the Pazzo shorty levers on my 798 (650 twin). took a little getting used to but being from a mountain biking background I love them.

    Plus when the bike goes down there is a much less chance that the levers will break.

    Oh, and they are great for off road. That's mainly why I went for the shorty.

    cheers,
    Mark

    Pazzo is about 30 minutes from where I live in Vancouver.

    I'm using Vario's - they're adjustable in length as well as stand-off - maybe something to consider.

    Anyone have any experience with these? Even with shipping a set is cheaper than one Pazzo.

    Call me an elitist douchebag, but when it comes to things like my brakes, I tend to stick with the 'good stuff' [established brands, like Pazzo] or OEM.

    The fleabay Chinese knock offs might be fine, but I'm not willing to fnd out.

    I like the info-graphic they have on the bottom of the ebay page showing fingers/lever length. a few of the other companies could learn a thing or two from this presentation

    I also like how the page proclaims themselves as a "top rated power seller", but the eBay username has a count of 2...!
