    I was looking at the Wunderlich Vario levers before, and I rode them on a rental bike.
    Price used to be 80 Euros in Germany and it went up to 120 Euro now!
    Gosh thats a price rise!!:eek1

    Accentually the Wunderlichs are the only aftermarket product I came across where one can adjust the length of the lever.

    Is there anything else like that one the market? Or do I just have to swallow the bitter pill of not having ordered earlier?

    How else are the Germans going to handle the Greek debt! :wink:

    But those levers and their shifters are worth every penny if you plan to keep the bike for a long time.
    I run them on both of my BMWs. Lets just say they are simply art! :clap

    Now I feel even better about adding them to my F8 a few months ago. They are indeed a sweet piece of gear.

    Pazzo levers are available for the F650/800, in a variety of colors, and although the lever reach is adjustable, the lever width is not, but it's available in two width sizes and at half the cost of Wunderlich.

    they're much better than the originals. If you cover the brake lever as me all the time -- it's a must.

    but... the inner edges are razor-sharp... had to cover the edges with tape to protect the gloves.
