Aftermarket levers???

Hey fellas,
I went to my first bike night (and had apretty wild ride getting there), but saw a few bikes with aftermarket levers. It got me thinking... do i want to get some? Sure they look pretty damn good, and I'm still pretty squid, so i won't be able to take full advantage of the performance of the levers.

Here is my question... is there any real benefit from pazzo or crg levers? Cosmetics aside that is... is it worth it?

The only advantage is the adjust on the fly. I have a set of Pazzo's on my SH and like them but don't really mess with them since I first put them on. I did go with shorties in the event I drop the bike that it, hopefully, would not break off a lever. That is about it, Oh and they look pretty.

i think crg has a new bend away lever. saw it in my dennis kirk book for this season. It has a horizontal pivot that has a ball detent that can deflect up or down in the case of an accident

I have Pazzo shorties and yes they are spendy. I really got them for the bling but I also needed a special set (gixxer 6 piston brake lever/hawk clutch) for my VFR and they had no problem making me a set.

I think they are short enough to avoid damaged in a drop. I also think they also have a better feel and action than any stocker but will they drop a second off your lap times? Nope.

Is there a greater range of adjustment provided by the pazzos? I hate how long the travel is on the VTR, and it is the only source of constant irritation for me on my bike. The stock lever is already set in as far as it can go and it's still too far for me.

I saw a set of pazzo levers on a new CBR600. They were the standard length and seemed to be a little better from stock. Just curious, if i were to purchase some for the Hawk, which ones would fit? Because i'm not seeing them specifically for the SH.
