Aftermarket levers

So has anyone tried the aftermarket levers from: http://www.rideitmoto.com/products.php?id=73

I want to change my levers out for a short high quality lever. I love the look of a pazo, but there a heavy chunk of change.

I was checking those out yesterday. They would be $82 shipped to my door. I am really considering getting them.

Pazzo's would be about $225. Could be a great deal if they are as good as they say they are.

So you want to buy them and tell me if it is worth it?

They look like Vortex levers. Someone needs to try them.

Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching.

My bad, either the website came up differently or I went forward to the main page, seeing a plethora of different lever sets but none for the V. Past experience with buying replacement levers, the ones off a EX500 fit the V.

I clicked on the link and it went directly to the V levers.

Yeah they do look alot like the vortex levers, and from what i hear the vortex arn't bad for the money. I would love to get a set of asv levers also. The only thing i worry about with new levers is when they don't actuate the brake as good as factory, like the nub that presses in on the MC is too short or not angled correctly.

suspect the same generic chinese copies I've been using - very lightweight - click adjust works okay - contact area on highest span setting little small - span itself adequate but I replaced mechasim to increase span further to own taste. Value for money? - do it!
