I put on Pazzo's. Non-folding, longs. Look and work great. They are expensive. My son found them on E-Bay so I did not pay full price. But I do admit the ones from the2wheel.com that MadMax posted look good for the price.

Yes - they went on in minutes, no issues. I got them over the winter and have been running them all this season.

I was trying to find an older thread on them, but couldn't. Someone was basically saying that had Pazzos for one bike and got these for another and basically couldn't tell the difference. The site I mentioned was also in that thread and that's how I found the place.

The FJR is the second bike that I have put the 2Wheels levers on. I took my FZ6 into the dealership for a service and the mechanic, a local racer, commented on how great the levers felt. When I told him I had paid $35 for the pair he couldn't believe it.

Might have been me. Was running the Pazzo's on my wife's FZ6 and the ones from The Two Wheels on my FZ1. Since swapped them over as we are selling the FZ6. Cannot tell the difference. Also have installed the The Two Wheels on a friends Suzuki SV650 - she likes them a lot - far more adjustment than stock on that bike.

I've also bought replacement levers only from them (anticipating the inevitable garage drop from one of the girls) and they are easy to change just the lever if you need to - yes, I did need to.

I like the colour combinations and I think black with Titanium adjusters looks good and not too blingy.

Black with red adjusters from 2Wheels on my 2006. Love them - more comfortable than stock, better contour, and much better looks.

They may be the same levers coming out from the same machinery that made the Pazzos. The story I heard (from Chinese web site) was that a lot of these manufacturers in China making products for Pazzos are making levers from the same machines in 2nd or 3rd shift or weekends to supplement their income on the side. Some levers you can even see the same tool marks on both. Making levers or golf club on the side is easier to do than shoes, obviously. It's just aluminum.

the2wheels levers I got work fairly well and feel great. They do have a tendency to ratchet down of their setpoint occasionally. The break lever does it about twice as often as the clutch. Not a big deal but slightly annoying. Sometime this summer I'll pull them off and see if I can file the detent a little deeper.

I got a set of OEM length black levers with red adjusters for my '14 and couldn't be happier. Both levers for under $40 shipped.

Done and done.
I have been running those same levers for 2 years and the feel and function is fantastic but the black on the levers and perches have faded to a bronze color so not very happy about that.

Reviving old thread, forgive please but relevant question.
Shorty levers, from 2wheels-
https://www.the2wheels.com/products/...aha~md_fjr1300
is the profile of the lever rounded enough to be comfortable on the fingertips as the lever slides across the finger? I tried a friends FJR with a shorty lever that was NOT from 2wheels, unknown brand, and the profile of the lever where it contacted the fingers was sharp. Very little round over on the lever, only the top and bottom surface had a cosmetic roundover which led to discomfort with heavy clutch use. Edges felt square to the finger after time.
For those who use the 2wheels lever what is your observation on the profile of the finger engagement surfaces?
