View Full Version : levers for small hands
10-09-2006, 12:28 PM
So a friend has cbr600rr and the lever reach is little far for her small hands. Especially the clutch, the brake lever has some adjustability but replacing both may be best.
Any suggestions? Are there stock options or would CRGs (or pazzo) be better to make the reach shorter.

Either or would work. But I recently saw an ad for an even more adjustable lever than Pazzo or CRG. I can't think of the name off the top of my head though....I'll have to get back with you on that. Shorty's are cool but if your friend has small hands, the lack of leverage may be more of a hinderance than the adjustablility affords.......sean

I was looking at the shorty's too but I'm thinking the regular would be better for leverage. I guess it depends on the lever angle.

I found the ad. The levers are by STM and are convertable from standard length to shorties so that way, you only have to buy one lever. The adjustment is a barrel type and can be adjusted with your thumb while riding if neccessary. STM claims they are more adjustable than the roll a click style of Pazzo and CRG......sean

I wear a med (large in alpinestars) but my finger length is more like a small in gloves. I found my OEM clutch lever on my Mille further out than I'd like but the brake was jsut where I like it, I put CRG's on my bike and now both are at the same location which is about the same spot my OEM brake lever was, not sure if the saem will be with her bike though. I have the long levers but comparied the gemotry to the shorties and it was the same jsut the lever was shorter.
