I ordered a set of shorty adjustable levers for my wifes 250R. They will be here in the mail tonight. First thing is first, to test them on the 125 to see if they fit, I will be sure to post results, pics, ect.

We got the cheap Chinese levers. I have the Pazzos on my 600 so it will be nice to see what 1/5 of the price of the Pazzos get me.

I am not starting a thread on Chinese vs USA made (or Canadian in Pazzo case). You buy what you want, I am just trying this out for a comparison.. There are thousands and thousands opinions saying they are great. See actually only 1 person that had an issue, but could of been fake for all I know..

Alight, just tried them out. The brake lever fit 100% perfect, the clutch lever not so well. It fit but it was just on the sloppy side. Here is a picture of the issues on the clutch side. Keep in mind these are 250R levers, so I am sure one off

Keep in mind these are 250R levers, so I am sure one off a different bike might fit, but for now we are stuck on what does in fact fit.

As you can see there is a lip at the top of the stock clutch lever that is missing on the aftermarket 250R lever. I did compare these aftermarket levers to the ones on my 250R and they are correct, so there WAS a bit of a redesign on the clutch side for the 125.



As for my thoughts on the Chinese levers. They appear to be identical to the $200 Pazzos that I have. Funny thing is they look MUCH cleaner than the Pazzos. The Pazzos are covered in tooling marks from the CNC machine, and these Chinese ones are really cleaned up before anodizing. Overall they look great.. But in the back of my mind I keep thinking, can I really trust my life to these...

The marks from milling could also depend on what steel or metal was used. Harder metals tend to show milling marks.

Thanks for the info though. Took one for the team.

Incorrect. If the correct feeds/speeds, and the proper end mill were used, the finish should be just as

I have machined stainless steel, and cobalt chrome to a 5 micro finish.

Not being too picky, but I've been a cnc machinist for nearly 30 years. :)

I sent that picture I posted above to the guy I bought the Chinese levers from and he said he was going to send me another adapter to see if I could get them to fit the 125 correctly. So I should have that shortly :)
