Brembo lever compatibility?

I am thinking about biting the Brembo M/C bullet to end my mushy lever. I am wondering if my Pazzo shorty levers will be compatible with the Brembo M/C.

Any ideas?

Also, does can anyone recommend a good source/price for the Brembo?

The pazzo lever will not fit a brembo MC but i do believe pazzo makes one to fit it, if not CRG does.

But as BD says Pazzo makes a shorty lever for the Brembo's, running one now on my 10R and works like a champ.

Thanks for the tip. Do you know if they will fit the ZX6R M/C?

Also, I bought HEL lines for my 10, but haven't installed them. To your knowledge, will they work on the Brembo or ZX6R M/C?

Thanks for your time!

Thanks for the info. After looking at a possible $350 for the Brembo M/C, I hate to add on the cost of a new shorty brake lever. That will bring the price over $400 easy.

Maybe I will go with a ZX6R M/C...

I have to consider if my HEL lines will fit also...

Plenty to think about. A bike project is never done it seems. :)

I help when i can

Sorry but negative yet again as the lever is MC specific so just like the Brembo you would need a lever to fit the zx6r radial MC.

I do believe a few members have had luck with fitting a zx6r MC to their current ss-lines but not sure about the Brembo.
