One of the first things I did with my last bike was replace the stock levers with adjustable ASV shorties. It's still one of the best upgrades I made to date. Has anyone done the same on the 899? If so, any recommendations on brands? Also, if you did it yourself, how difficult was it? My last attempts took awhile as I couldn't get enough slack on the clutch cable with just the barrel adjuster and wound up having to loosen/retighten it at the clutch.

I'm interested in doing this too. But do you know if changing the levers would void the warranty?
I would think that if anything related to the clutch and hand brake happen they might void your warranty ...but also depend of the person you're dealing with...I would wait ...2 years will go by in a snap of a finger and than nobody could say anything . Well... unless you buy the Ducati approved Rizoma's or so...of course they're more expensive

Check what is available for the 1199 as they should fit straight onto the 899 bars. It's pretty easy to install as its just a matter of removing a few screws, replace, screw back in and done.

Also no it will not void your warranty to change the levers. Only engine related modifications will void your warranty if not done by a authorised Ducati mechanic. Might need to check the rules for your country though.

I have a pair of ASV C5 Shorties waiting for the 899 to come home. I've never used them before but I think they will be perfect. Build quality is superb!

I was told the ASV's wouldn't work for some reason, so that's good news. Report back once you've got them installed.

Will do. I e-mailed ASV and asked them to be sure. The answer was yes, they will fit. We'll se in a few weeks.

I wouldn't see why it would considering the fact that my dealership sells aftermarket levers and other performance parts. You would figure that they wouldn't sell em if they knew it was against Ducatis warranty

You got an email response form ASV? Wow, I have sent them a few, never hear back form those slackers! Sucks, because I love the levers. Looking forward to seeing the fit and finish on your 899.

I'm thinking of picking up a set of these ABM Synto Evo levers. They've got a nice distinct look and good pull position, but I don't know what kind of quality to expect.
I really liked the Rizoma levers I had on my last bike (not a big fan of shorties).
