Look at these billet beauties. They're so nice we almost don't want to install them!
We'll begin by aligning the cable reliefs on the adjustment knob and lever. This is done so the cable can be removed from the lever.
Take a 10mm box wrench or socket/ratchet and remove the lower nut.
With the nut removed go ahead and pull the pivot bolt out. Then remove the lever from the housing and finally the cable from the lever.
Before installing the new levers you'll want to thoroughly grease them to keep the lever action smooth.
Install the supplied shim in the pivot hole after applying the grease.
Install the cable into the new lever taking care not to bind the cable.
Slide the lever into the housing, reroute the cable through the cable reliefs and slide the pivot bolt back into place.
Retighten the 10mm nut on the pivot bolt and you're all done with the clutch side.
Begin the process by removing the 10mm nut on the underside of the pivot bolt.
Here's the nut removed, do not lose it since you'll need it for the install.
Use a flat-blade screwdriver to remove the pivot bolt.
Here's a close-up of the pivot bolt, save that as well!
Grease the push-pin and make sure it fits inside the recessed spot on the Pazzo lever.
Don't forget to grease the pivot area of brake lever before installation.
Slide the pivot bolt into place and tighten it with a flat-blade screwdriver.
Tighten the 10mm nut and you're all set.
Here are some pics of the finished Pazzos.
They look tons better and work as good as they look.
Here's a close-up of the six-way adjustable mechanism. It can be toggled on the fly even with gloves on.
Here's an illustration of the clutch lever's adjustment range-that's more than an inch!
With levers representing two of the most important controls on a motorcycle you would think we'd pay more attention to them. In fact, adding adjustable aftermarket levers is an effective upgrade that's easy on the wallet and more helpful than you might think.
With the click of a switch or roll of a knob you can adjust the lever's distance from the bar. More than a change in feel, you can offset some brake-fade by pushing the levers away from the bar and when fatigued fingers can squeeze no more, you can bring the levers closer for a short pull as well. Add in the fact a good set of adjustable aftermarket levers look more trick than your wimpy stockers and it's a win on all fronts.
With a history of quality and a win list a mile long I knew a set of Pazzo levers were the logical choice. Available in standard and shorty lengths with more color combos than we can count made picking the right combo easy. In the end, standard length black levers with red adjusters were the winning combo.
Lever pull is tons better and the blacked-out finish makes the Six look mean? Read on for the full install.
