    Do you guys prefer shorty levers, or the normal length levers?
    Either or, where is the best place to buy these?

    I’ve seen some cool looking powdercoated shorty levers on ebay sell for $29.99. It depends, I like a full sized lever, but it has to be adjustable.

    Do you have a name of these? I do not know whether to get shorty’s or regular adjustable’s.

    I am thinking to get shorty’s, since I already will have the normal length stock ones.

    Here is something I found: http://shop.the2wheels.com/CNC-Adjustable-Clutch-Brake-Levers-Set-for-Kawasaki-Lever-Set-Kawasaki.htm

    They look awesome, and apparently many other riders have good experiences with them.

    Mac, what do you not like about them? Can you not adjust the positioning on them for better ergonimics?

    I like the adjustable levers myself but these are the ones that I found that have the right blue I need.

    I just added shorties because I wanted levers that were adjustable. After the 1st ride, fell in love with them and the feel. I can get 3 fingers on them and have medium/large size hands. Its a matter of personal preference I suppose but I am a fan (and they look better IMO).

    Yeah, it sounds like many people like the shorty’s, so I’ll probably try them.
