IMSTuner I was just answering the question why some cost more than others. As long as you are happy with your lever. I personally have send back 3 levers back to asv for a free swap when I went down at track day. So the f3 or c5 would be worth it for me.

Totally got ya. Mine are 7075 aluminum. Perhaps that is the same aluminum I put on a cookie sheet to baking cookies, I've no idea. I do know that it's just a lever not a piston or other critical engine part. They are solid as a rock, and they look as good as they did when I put them on 4700 miles ago. They operate flawlessly and feel great in my hands. Am I missing something here? At the end of the day I'm happy with my purchase and was simply trying to pass on information that might prove useful for some.

That justifies it for me

obijack Evotech also makes nice levers if your not crazy about the pazzo, and they are around $100 bucks. Not eBay junk.

carrlozx I also have the ASV levers. They are easy to install and look great.

GreenOne I have Titax shorty in gold. Nothing to complain about regarding fit, finish or function.
