Anyone tried these? Just searched but couldn't find much.

I ordered some from the UK. They were advertised as 899 Panigale ASV C5 levers, but the clutch lever is clearly not the right one. There is nowhere to attach the 'plunger' (for want of a better word). I reckon they sent me 'something which usually works on Ducatis'.

Pretty peeved TBH.

I've emailed them but not sure if anyone else has installed ASV's with success??

Cheers

I called ASV in Huntington Beach to ask about the levers they have available. The salesman said that the 1199 ones "should fit" the 899, needless to say his confidence was underwhelming. I love the product, but the customer service and shipping speed is outrageously bad. I've sent them emails on about 5 occasions, and I never hear back. When I ordered a clutch lever for my CBR it took about 4 weeks to get here and it's only a 7 hour drive away!

Are the 1199 and 899 controls interchangeable? I'm looking at the ABM Synto levers, but they only list the 1199.

Ok I sussed it out. I think a couple of the spacer blocks were in the wrong bag (ie marked for ktm when they were for Ducati). All fits great.

Only thing is I'm finding the shorty clutch a little TOO short due to the wide bars on the panigale. Thinking I might try to move the whole clutch assembly further towards the bars to overcome this issue. Looks like I will need to adjust the reservoir a little bit so it doesn't foul the fairing.

We shall see...
