Correct.

Thanks for the responses! I had a chance to take a look at the bar last night, and decided to try moving the brake perch to the right (A), and it worked! moved it around 10mm to the right. Then, I loosened the throttle clamp and tried moving it left (B), and that worked as well - moved it about 3mm. So overall now the shorty levers are exactly positioned how I would like it:



Here's the end result:

Hey,
I just got both "long an short" levers from 2wheels.
I had short ones on my son's Ninja and they are right on.
However I found they are too short for STR.
Actually "long" is already an inch shorter than factory. So I decided to just keep long version for now.
Sorry, not the best picture, but you should get an idea

Same deal, you have a lot of room between your throttle tube and your starter button. If you pull your lever and it binds on the control housing that is bad.

Yes, of course you want to have full range for your brake lever and I certainly have it.
It may be hard to see in the picture but my brake lever plane of motion is way below the control housing and I actually plan to lower it further as it feels better to me.
I took picture with lever as close to the bar as it would go and it does not touch anything even close.
