after wrecking my bike, i need a new front brake lever. I am looking at pazzo levers but honestly have a hard time justifying spending $180 on levers. Is there any reason to upgrade to pazzo's verse spend a fraction of the cost on a stock lever??? Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

Pazzo's and crg are awesome! I don't know what makes them so special, but I have no regrets when I bought them for $150. Hard to explain....buy them, you'll see what the hype is about. They're only $180 that's less then a days pay for me....just buy them.

It is tough to explain.

I think they're a much better shape (easier to get your hands onto). They're billet aluminum so they don't shatter the second they touch the ground, and the adjustability is nice.

I have Pazzo on mine and they feel a lot easier to grip then a stock one i feel. Especially since me being asian and having small hands. I love the adjustability they offer compared to the stock levers. I have mine set at 1 and the grap is so much shorter.

Amen, better feel and ease of adjustment. you can adjust on the fly. Get the short ones, once you get used to them stock ones just feel like tree trunks.

Get the shortie's if you get any they wont hit the ground as easy if you go down, and because there shortie you can get you use to keeping two fingers over your brake and clutch and the other two on the handle bars. There easily adjustible great feel and look the mutts nuts.

Yeah the "long ones" are barely long enough to get my 4 fingers on the clutch lever. I find myself shifting with just 3 fingers now.

thanks for all the responses guys, since i dont know anyone with the shorties to get a feel for them. i think ill get a set of the long levers since theyre shorter than stock but more than a 2 finger lever.

Yeah I have the long on both sides, no regrets. They are very smooth, and the adjustability is great. The long levers also have cutouts so if you DO drop the bike, only the tip of the lever will break off (as it's meant to) so you can still ride home.

Another common thing people do is get one side short and one side long. Never really understood that though.

I bought red ones at first but they didn't match the red on the bike so I bought a new set of the black with silver adjusters and sold my red ones. Here you can see the break off cutout though.

The logic behind it is that many riders regularly use one or two finger braking, but one or two finger clutch operation is more rare. That being said, I could never live with the lack of symmetry a setup like that calls for.

Hey, I'm new to the ZX6R, I upgraded from an EX-250 and the clutch lever feels like a whole new world to me. The ZX6R lever puts alot of strain on my hand. I think my hands may be too big for the stock clutch lever. Unfortunatly the stock clutch isn't adjustable like the stock brakes. I have the brake lever adjusted to 5. (6th is farthest) So do you think it would be a good idea to get Pazzo levers as well?
