Based on the parts numbers someone posted here, I ordered a set of ASV levers at least six weeks ago. Turns out, the brake lever part number was the wrong one.  I should have done my own research, so that's on me. So, that one went back for a refund and this time I ordered the correct one. Fast forward a week, and the new lever shows up. The problem is that it's the wrong one again because someone in the warehouse, I learned later, decided that he or she knew better and sent me the "right" one. So, that one went back for a refund, and I again reordered the correct lever.

Meanwhile, I had to go back/forth wiith ASV to sort things out and now, if you go to their website, you will see updated product numbers for the Z900RS so I won't post them here.

Despite repeated entreaties, I have yet to get any refunds from ASV, which is one reason I would hesitate to buy anything from them again.

Regardless of my mini-ordeal, I'm happy with the fit/finish and quality (they're not cheap).  These are titanium color with black adjusters.

Interesting colors! I went for the "cheapest" colors, which is still an expensive proposition. Sorry about all the model number confusion, I'm happy they adjusted it on their site.

At least the levers look great!  I gather you paid separately each time (as opposed to return/exchange). Is it too late to initiate a dispute with your credit card company on the last one, at least? I know that's the correct one, so there really shouldn't be a dispute for that specific one. But if you used the same cc for all of the purchases, I'd be surprised if a credit card company backed the vendor that isn't properly issuing refunds on the other charges. These are on my list, so your experience is a little disappointing. to hear about, so I'm going to wait to hear what happens if you don't mind updating us.

I did the whole return/exchange circus and have had a good experience with them. There was a bit of a delay when they had the factory shutdown for a while.

Yeah, Vince at ASV told me they were short-staffed and that it would take longer than usual to process orders. Still, they were able to ship the levers right away.  I have no doubt that I will eventually get a refund, I just don't like having to chase a company to get it.

Now that the parts numbers are available on their site, it's all good. Like I said, these are top-quality levers and I'm glad I bought them. I've bought other name-brand aftermarket levers and these are the nicest by far. The length is good for me (long version) and the knobby adjuster is more granular than the 1-2-3-4-5 click stop kind of adjuster you see on most brands.

Good info, thanks!

Iíd have to think about standard vs. shorty before I commit to buying a set.

I got the shorty versions, because I always do 2 finger everything, but everybody has their own preference. The quality of the levers is awesome.
