    Cool Female biker looking for some advice!

    Hey!

    I have just placed a deposit on a 2008 RSV1000r and I'm looking at upgrading the levers. I have had a browse at some other threads on this, ASV's seem to come out on top? Can you guys recommend a seller in UK that is reasonable on price? Also the size, I love the look of the short levers, but is the clutch going to be too heavy for short? (opinions please )

    Any tips/info I should know about the bike would also be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    If you have the hand span, stay with the long ones, the std levers are fine though.

    Stay long as the clutch can be a bit heavy and you want all the leverage you can get

    Agree with Redratbike. I have some shortys on and the reduced leverage is certainly noticeable. I have large man hands BTW.
