Pazzo Racing (Levers)
« on: November 08, 2018, 02:49:37 PM »
Installed Pazzo adjustable levers. Reasonably priced, well made product. Install was pretty straight forward. If your bike has cruise control etc. be careful with the micro switches. They are fragile and easily damaged. They come in a bunch of color combos, long short or a combination of both.

I amazed Pazzo is still in business given all the chinese knockoffs are their copies with better features though the fitment can be suspect in some cases. As for uniqueness, ASV and Giles are probably the only ones. Even CRGs look like Pazzo copies or vice versa.

Hiving not laid eyes....or hands for that matter on either ASV or Gilles, I'll take you at your word. I can say that a riding buddy has the Ebay version on his GSXR , and we both agree, the Pazzo's are a notch above.

I've seen many different brands of levers and pazzo is as good of quality as ASV or gilles. 

Pazzo just use the "old school" adjusters (to be fair I think pazzo probably invented that old style adjuster, lol) that has been copied by all the cheap ebay levers so people associate pazzo with ebay junk when they see them.

Pazzo has become like GoPro. Both were the progenitors  and Chinese just knocked them off left right center while offering more features. The reliability, quality is suspect and some design is not that sturdy but for 1/6 the price, I can buy 6 of them.

Meaning absolutely no disrespect....and not being a "lever snob", I'll let you guys hammer out the finer points. I will say only that for me, being a 'wknd warrior" and not a track rat, so far they are serving me well. A definite upgrade to the huge, bulky OEM's . Durability wise, time will tell I guess. Proud to be supporting a Canadian company rather than a Chinese sweatshop !

I had Pazzo's on my GSXR.

They were exceptionally well made, and cannot be compared to the Chinese crap that looks the same on eBay ads.

In terms of finish quality (anodizing, fitment, tolerances) I would rate them the same as the Gilles X-levers I have on the R.
I got nothing.....

For me the Pazzo shape works exceptionally well- far better than the ASV or Gilles levers do and infinitely better than the OEM.

When I bought my R the real Pazzos weren't yet available but the cheap Chinese knock-offs were, so I bought a set.   Mechanically I have no complaints, but the anodizing has faded on the red adjusters and one lever has turned root-beer brown while the other has stated nice and black.

If I ever actually care enough I'll spring for a set of the real Pazzos, but for now I can't be bothered.
