The levers look pretty nice. The clutch lever is quite short, can't use my 1st two fingers to completely compress the clutch lever in. The ring finger gets in the way. If I could do it again I would purchase the short for the brake and the long for the clutch. Overall though nice set of levers look really durable the red accented wheel does NOT match the 07 red r6 color.

ASV has introduced their famed C5 unbreakable Clutch and Brake Levers to the street bike scene, making these the last set of levers you will need for your motorcycle. They are virtually unbreakable due to a pivot point that allows the levers to rotate in reverse direction, matched up with CNC-machining out of 6061 aluminum for superior strength.
The on-the-fly Micro-Reach adjusters allow you to move the levers with a range of over 4". Durability is not an issue with these levers. The ASV C5 clutch and brake levers are constructed using sealed steel bearings, stainless bushings, a chrome silicon high-tension spring and stainless steel fasteners. All these high-quality pieces make the levers completely rebuildable. Use these levers on the street or take it to the track with the removable switch tabs.
- CNC-machined from 6061 billet aluminum.
- Unbreakable pivot design.
- Uses precision sealed bearings in pivot.
- Adjustable reach with four inches of range.
- Micro-adjustable reach with 180 increments.
- Laser-engraved ASV logo.
- Five-year unconditional guarantee.
- Made in the U.S.A.
Great levers!! The amount of adjustability in Tn these levers is amazing. I had a pair of "roll a click" style levers before and found that one click at the base of the lever resulted in a far greater adjustment at the end. With these, you can make precise adjustments to place the clutch and brake EXACTLY where you need them for fast, smooth control.
Purchased these for a 2012 Gixxer 750. Firstly, these are very easy to install and come with very good instructions. The look and feel of the levers are above the OEM levers without a doubt. The brake lever works like a charm.
So what's the problem? The clutch lever doesn't work for this bike. Two challenges, the neutral kill switch tab is engaged on the lower adjustable settings. Meaning the bike won't start, or get ready for an F1 error on your dash. Not a problem, you say? Try downshifting while having this problem and you'll see what happens.
Second problem, even if you solve the kill switch problem by reducing the size of the tab on the switch, the lower settings allow the lever to hit the "mode selection switch". If you're a squid, or experience hand fatigue after a long ride, you tend to pull the lever a bit more than needed. So get ready for constantly switching from A to B mode...
The way I see it, yes, many aftermarket parts require modifications on your bike. However, for the price, and the simple nature of the part, I expect better. The lever comes with multiple attachments to choose from, why not include an attachment that doesn't create this problem on Suzuki's? Yes, I said Suzuki's. The lever isn't functional on the B-King either.
I have a 2013 Suzuki GSX-R 600. Installation was straight forward however when I tried to start my motorcycle for the first time it failed. I had to adjust my clutch lever out to about the same distance as the OEM clutch lever in order for the starter kill switch to disengage. What's the point in changing the OEM lever out for this if I can't adjust lever in closer for a shorter reach? No issues with the brake lever.
Got these to replace the Pazzo Shorty's which were damaged in a minor lowside. I know ASV doesn't make the only folding lever available but the feel is much better and I learned the hard way sometimes it's better to spend a little more once than to spend a lot more later. Hopefully I never have to replace them which is the whole point.
I got these because my old ones were too damaged to use anymore. Yes the price seems high for a pair of levers, but my old ones were about $50 cheaper and they didn't have a folding mechanism like these do, which is why I got these. If the price is too high then look at an alternative which can fold, it's a feature that is well worth it.
I purchased these levers for my bike which has now turned into a project bike. I used there levers on my buddies bike a few weeks ago while my bike was torn apart, and I've fallen in love with them. I purchased the shorty levers, and they've just got such a durable solid feel to them, as well as a great finish to them. Definitely one of my better purchases for my R6 because I was running with powder coated factory levers that I cut down. I had been steered away from buying these at first because they're kind of pricey, but they are definitely worth it!
I switched from Pazzo Levers to these ASV's since getting a new bike and they are definitely, bar none, built better. The adjust-ability of these levers are endless and you can't beat the 5 year warranty these Levers come with!
compliments everywhere i go.. i got the gold standard size and people are asking me if my levers are real gold lol love it.
I bought these to instal on my 07 r6 and they went on very easy and they look fantastic. You guys allways have fast shipping and good service one of the things to allways keep me coming back. Keep up the good work you all.
Bought these after a couple of years of friends bragging about their experience with ASV C5. As soon as I got them, I was impressed by their looks and quality. They installed extremely easy...no fuzz at all...fit like OEM. I was concerned with leverage with the shorty clutch lever, but nice and smooth. The gold looks great on my 2009 Honda CBR1000RR Repsol.
ASV are the best levers! This is the 2nd set I got for my 600 - I wanted the red to match my bike but couldn't get and got a competitor - bad choice! Have ASV on my 1000, they look good, durable & worth the price!
i am a happy customer with the purchase I made. About had these levers a month and very pleased with them. Sale person was very helpful with purchase. I would probably use motosport for future purchase.
They perform as well as they look which is pretty good. Installation was a breeze.
I put these on my 2002 R1, got the shorties in black (excellent feel). I parked on my jobsite and it happened to down pour, needless to say i came out to my bike laying down because i was on a dirt road, the levers were in perfect condition just had a broken mirror...
Bought these asv leavers. 2 years ago when I bought my 08 graffiti 600rr. Haven't had any probloms with them. Great feel and lifetime warranty through asv...
i havnt gotten these for my r6 yet. but i have them on my yz 125 and theyve been through more than you can imagine. i have yet to bend of break them. and theyve taken some rough hits.
