Clutch and front brake levers

Guys. I've been thinking about replacing my levers. However I'm finding it hard to find parts in the states.
What suggestions do you guys have or what have you switched to?

CRG Shorty levers are great

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

like Ian said CRG levers are great........
want exotic stuff? check Alex at GP Racing he is in NorCal

buying from suppliers outside the US is usually stupid expensive because of their taxes

Mitch in OZ says the trade price for an Iridium spark plug is $17.......here they are 4 for
$26.84

Dave's Pirelli P-Zero front tires are $125 here, $1,000 there in NZ.......sit down, the rears are $140 here and $1,400 there

I use the "TITAX" short levers.
The quality and precision machining (CNC) is satisfactory, the functionality is flawless, but anodizing (gold) in my case is not exactly a quality as would be expected given the price.

I have a question regarding levers -- specifically the brake lever.

the stock levers, at least on the '13 model, dont offer the same amount of brake pressure/leverage when two-fingering it.. like only 50% of the clamping power.. as soon as i put four finger and apply the same pressure the bike(mono block brembos) has gobbs of stopping power, but two-fingering it actually scared me(moreso that grabbing too much brake) when I am forced to make quick evasive braking..


something i never noticed in any of my other bikes. ever. stock and with shorty levers(which I installed on all my bikes.)


Has anyone noticed this with the stock levers? I have been eyeing the Moto corse ones, even though i feel they are ridiculously over priced --- I just dont want to drop the money and have the same issue as the stockers..
