Cheapo Chinese ones are fine as long as you have are willing to shim them and possibly replace any bolts every now and again. I had a set on my Thundercat for 2 years and once fitted correctly they were great. At first the clutch didn't fit and both levers had quite a bit of vertical play. I used the bushing from the original levers to solve the first problem and a couple of washers solved the second so still not expensive.

I've got pazzos on my current bike and by all accounts they aren't any different. Just have a better finish which I suspect will last longer.
I've seen plenty of Red Chinese levers turn pink after a few months in the sun haha

Ok that sounds good to me, I was worried as I bought a cheap tap and die set before and it turned out the tool handle was made of Emmental mixed with a Victoria sponge... The asv ones look great but are crazy money, was looking at the pazzo but only saw stubbies which I'm fine with for the brake as I only use two fingers but I need three fingers for the clutch to be comfortable. Reno do a pair for 60 squid but again just seeing stubby.
I'm planning on going Sunday on the Fazer.
I've not been to any of the rounds this year.

Spent the day packing the car up for a long weekend at Brands. Should be hot on and off the track. Good tribute bands on Saturday night to Led Zep, The Who and Madness. Got the gas powered coolbox fired up now on max with 36 cans on the go. Can't wait.

I've got the 20 quid Chinese copies, been on the bike 2 years odd, fitted ok, work ok,decent range of adjustment. At the time I was a bit sceptical, but read an article on a Suzuki forum, where a metallurgist tested the strength of oe levers against Pazzo and Chinese copies. The Pazzos came out top with the copies second. That was good enough for me. :)

I quickly gave all the brake pad pins a clean up after work yesterday and as i had gloves on i physically felt and examined the whole chain and there were no stiff links at all and as i said earlier it appeared to be in really good nick.

So why would it suddenly start making a noise? I expect it when they're new but i've never had one make a noise before without having a stiff link?

Wheel alignment after adjusting the chain? Perhaps combined with a particular level of wear and tear?

Seems okay, i’m a bit fussy about the wheel alignment and even had a whinge when my last tyre was fitted because it didn’t feel like it was straight enough.
