Pazzo lever install question: Pivot Bolt Empty
PostSubject: Pazzo lever install question: Pivot Bolt   Pazzo lever install question: Pivot Bolt Icon_minitime1Fri Jan 18, 2019 5:09 pm

So I bought some Pazzo levers and I'm trying to mount them. I removed the brake lever nut, but Guzzi, in their brilliance, decided to use a flat head screw to pair with the nut. When I use a normal size flat head screwdriver to try to pull the screw, it (the screw head) shreds. Am I missing something? Lefty-loosy? Do I need to find a screwdriver with enough width to pull it? It isn't supposed to be this complicated...

Use a screwdriver with a sharp and correctly sized blade.

The oem clutch lever has an adjustible conical plastic piece approx 3/4" long threaded into it that pushes the m/c piston. I ordered & returned a low cost blk replacement pair that didn't allow for the conical plastic piece to swap over. Do the Pazzo's have the ability?
I spend pretty easily on m/c's but I'm struggling with the $180 + shipping cost for a pr of blk levers. Thks

I got some from China, fit great. That threaded plunger has a very small set screw holding it in place if I remember correctly. They also fold up

I had some replacements from China. They worked well for about 10 months and then they became very loose. Pete took them off and showed me that the pivot points had become oval because the metal is poor quality. He replaced them with a pair of Pazzos for me and they are great. They work better and they feel better in your hand.

The Pazzos have the ability to accept the piece.  I've had them in the past, and thought they were worth buying again.

Got them for $150 on ebay. Both are short levers.

Sorry to ask maybe evident question, what is advantage of short levers, comparing to standard?

My reasons are twofold;
1( Aestheticaly, they help to creata a narrower, sleak appearance fm the front view if also insetting the turnsignals.
2) $$, less likely of breaking in a tip over.
3) some would say a different pull feel preference.


Some would say different pull feel preference.
Having said that I have the long on order for my in the shop GRiSO.
Ultimately, personal preferance.

I like just using my primary two fingers to pull. The others can stay on the grip. Seems more comfortable and stable to me.
