Pazzo clutch lever installation FYI.

If you are installing the Pazzo clutch lever, you need to remove the plastic strike lever that attaches from the bottom. This lever strikes the clutch switch.

I guess some replacement clutch levers, like CRG (1000RR member indicated to me) have one attached already, so don;t need to deal with it.

The screw is a very small Torx #6.

Other than that, everything fits perfectly and no adjustments needed to make sure the switch is activated/deactivated with clutch lever is used.

So the install goes like this:
  1. Adjust the clutch barrel adjuster all the way in (ie., towards the grip.) and align the adjuster slit with clutch cable so that the clutch lever can be removed.
  2. Remove the nut, washer, and pin to release the clutch lever.
  3. Remove the clutch lever pulling until it is free. The slack in the cable helps this to be easy.
  4. Remove the clutch cable from the clutch lever.
  5. Remove the plastic lever with the Torx #6 and reinstall on new clutch lever.
  6. Reverse steps to re-install new clutch lever.

Note the torque for the clutch lever pin/nut is 10NM.

I'm trying to install a Wunderlich clutch lever on my 2013 SS1000R and the switch lever screw that was supplied is too short to engage the threads. Does anyone know the screw size? I can't use the stock screw because the thread size is different.

Not sure of the pazzos, but the crg's use the stock bushing on at least the clutch lever. Don' forget it like i did.

+1 on remembering (and not losing) the stock clutch lever bushing.

Can someone with Pazzo's please post the range of distances between the lever and the bar at the shortest and longest settings? Thanks!

Do, or do not... There is no try.

Pazzos. On both brake and clutch, the inside distance from the closest part of the lever to the grip adjusts from 2" - 2.5".
