Who has owned BOTH Pazzo & ASV levers?

I know there is probably lots of threads on this if i search, but I only want to hear from those folks who have actually owned BOTH please.

Which did you like better and why?

Shorty or Long and why?

I had shorty pazzos before & I liked them but also considering ASV this time.

Thanks Much!

Good question!!!

I've been thinking about some levers, and I can't make my mind up.

I also have seen some other flip up grey ones somewhere with 1098 written on them, but can't remember where I have seen them. Anyone seen them? (Sorry to bust your question)

Levers

They grey flip-ups are sold by a few places try www.emotouk.com for example. Beleive it or not these have a way better feel than the standard levers. Personaly I don't really understand the short lever thing. After rinding all my life with 'normal' levers I think that they may be more to do with fashion than function. But the grey flip ups (with either 1098 or Ducati on them) are superb, much better feel, the standard Ducati onws are so soft you would not beleive it.

I just find that using one or two fingers on a lever a foot long is a waste, not like you can really say that "performance" of shorty levers is better.

Weight savings...............riiiiiiiight

cheers Doug. They were the ones I have been leaning towards. Personally I find the Pazzo and ASV a bit too blingy for my taste.

Thanks for info though.

I've had both ASV and Pazzo's (not on a Duc but does it really matter on what bike?). I liked the Pazzo's better. Closer comparo would be Pazzo's and CRG, with Pazzo's having the little indents cut-out where CRG doesn't. I prefer the shorties, more protected in the event of a get-off and don't need to fold, plus I find the one finger braking more comfy with the shorties. Pazzo's in my experience generally have more of an arch to them, whereas the bend comes closer in to the grips, so those with shorter digits can more easily grab on the close setting.

As for the feel factor one over the other, or even compared to stock, I'd say its mostly psychological really. You pay $160 for a set of levers you definitely want to believe they feel better. IMHO, the do look nicer and they should.

Good info here- thanks!

Your right about Pazzo & CRG being a closer compare, but figured i would just go Pazzo between the 2 of those since I already had them & liked them.

Though maybe there was a bigger difference in the ASVs, seemed like they have a little more adjustability.

Would love to see a few more opinions from those who used both or many different brands.

I'll let it bake in for a few more days befor i decide.

Thanks again all!
