Default Installed Pazzo Levers Today

This was very straight forward and without any unusual challenges. I'm about a 2/10 on the mechanic skills scale so I take my time and read the directions twice. Worked fine this time.

Took me about 20 minutes. Pazzo has written and photo directions in the box. I put on a shorty brake and long clutch.

Another thanks to Motovation. Good guys to deal with (and they're local for me).

Dig it.

Mark

Nice! I like these levers a lot. I Picked up a set of shorties at the local stealership during a blackfriday sale for $170. I love the CNC Machined look!

Did you loosen up the cables down by clutch actuator when installing these? After about 4-5 months of using the Pazzos, my clutch cable started to fray right at the perch. The tech at the shop blamed the fact that I didn't readjust the cable down at the bottom for it. Just a word of warning to keep an eye out for that.

Thanks for the tip.

I did not adjust anything at the bottom. I had a couple people and the Pazzo instructions advise to screw in the knurled cable adjustment piece right at the lever as far as it would go to relieve cable tension, do the lever change, then return it as it was. Did that.

Was advised by dealer mechanic that the functional adjustment check is tweaking that knurled piece for a nickle thickness of lever freeplay with a warm clutch. I wound up right back at that point after the lever change.

None that I know of. There IS a little black plastic tab under the clutch lever that trips a sensing switch. This has to be correctly fitted on the new lever.

But pretty much....the bike just doesn't even know that it isn't still riding on stock levers.
