Levers?

I'm wondering what clutch and break levers you guys are running?

Thanks, Levi

I was running stock on my B4 but got some CNC cheap ones. They are OK but you can't beat the price. I have used CRG before and do not like any shorty levers. I use two fingers for clutch and front brake and with any shorty levers I pinch my other fingers. I suggest anything that is stock length. If you want he bling then again stick with stock length. My 2 cents

I prefer shorties.
Very happy with these:

"Evotech Performance levers are CNC from billet aluminium.
Finished in an anodized black coating for longevity.
A six click positioning adjuster for making those little tweaks.
The aesthetics of the levers are only surpassed by the quality of the manufacturing.
Easy to follow pictorial instructions are available on the website.
Individual levers can be purchased if required."

Always!

On different kind of bikes, I've always preferred shorty levers for better functionality when one- or two fingering the levers. With the F3 levers (both stock and RC set) I've not been inhibited to do so, so I'll keep them long as it goes better with the superbike look.

I have CRG levers on all my bikes - either short or long (depends on what's on offer).

And how many fingers you choose to use is not dependent on the length of the levers. I tend to use 2 fingers on the clutch (when I use it) and they tend to hover over the lever most of he time - a throwback from being raised on 2Ts.

Most racers don't us shorty levers and are free to use whatever style they prefer.

Most important is the ability to properly adjust the reach.

I was going to protest the first statement, but the second one makes more sense. It's more about the reach of the levers than the length to be using less than 4 fingers on the levers without knocking into the non-used fingers while doing so. Isn't shorty levers usually angled a bit different, which automatically also creates a longer reach?

I have CRG levers on Gina...A shorty on the brake side as I only use 1 or 2 fingers there and can keep grip on the throttle with the others, and a standard on the clutch as I use all fingers on that lever......

I have stock MV levers on Lola (my track bike) and are quite happy with both the CRG and stock (although the stock have a smoother feel to the fingers than the edgy CRGs).

How many fingers you use is personal preference, there is no "right or wrong" to it. Anyone that tells you that you are "wrong" to use more than 1 or 2 fingers on brake or clutch is WRONG themselves. Do what you like and are comfortable with.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
