This week, my long awaited clutch and brake levers, arrived from PUIG.
Nice.

Fits my short fingers perfectly.

Hi Stefan, these look great. Can you post a link to the products? How long did they take to arrive?
Thanks, Alan

Just found them here Puig For the bike model Ducati HYPERSTRADA 2013 | Puig

With the hand guards I am not sure of hte point of foldable. The unfoldable in black with the black or sliver adjuster seem to come in at 31.70 +VAT which sounds a bargain.

I just ordered one from Hong Kong for 38 so I'll see what that's like when it arrives.

This thread is a duplicate of another on this forum. I've put Pazzos on my Strada (they are the same as for a regular Hypermotard) and some cheap Chinese copies on my wife's SV650. The may look similar, but there is no comparison in quality. The Pazzos have nice fine steps in the adjustment, the Chinese ones are much more coarse. Overall fit and finish are better, too.

Did you consider the "short" levers? I rarely use more than a couple fingers, especially on the brake. Worried they might be too short, though.

I like the Pazzo levers. Both on sale $149.99. Here's a link.

Pazzo Levers for Hyperstrada 821 13-14 - SoloMotoParts.com

For those that don't know yet, there is a very tiny plastic cylinder piece that is in the brake lever pressing against the brake light switch. This button also tells the computer if the brake is released when changing riding modes. When the button is pressed, the brake lights go out and riding modes can be changed. If the little plastic piece is not there, brakes will be considered always on. I learned the hard way. During assembly didn't see it fall out. I wondered what that shiny nice little black plastic part was on the garage floor before I threw it away. When I realized everything and how the brake lever controls the computer and brake lights I remembered that little black part I threw away! So I used my 3d printer to print another one.

Back to the levers. The whole transaction was very smooth. Usually I spend hours over days researching before I buy stuff like this. These just 'happened'. I didn't know racing levers would be this fun. Really changed the feel of the bike. I'm impressed and surprised.

I actually needed the shorty levers after I broke my handguard and replaced them with Acerbis handguards. Stock levers wouldn't fit in the new handguards so I used it as a reason to buy the Pazzo shorty levers. Oh, and I vinyl wrapped the handguards to hide Acerbis vulgar advertising. Sheesh those are some big letters. Acerbis would need to pay me for that kind of advertising!

The added weight of the metal in the Acerbis handguards changes handling and turning. I guess it's probably like bar weights. I've never had bar weights. Anybody know about the effects of bar weights, good thing for the Hyper?

Here's a link to the other lever thread.
Brake and clutch levers

I have the Pazzo's too but, I didn't notice any small parts falling out. I checked the parts catalog and found a small part (part no. 22 on the attached drawing). Is this what you are talking about? Ducati calls it "rubber pad".

Looking at the drawing, It's difficult to tell just where or how that little piece fits on the brake perch. I better check my bike when I get home. That thing may have fallen out, not sure. I'm leaving tomorrow for the Tail of the Dragon US129. It should be a great weekend of riding!

Yeah, that's it! Part no. 22. Thank you, jmatt for posting that picture.

I didn't think I needed the service manual to change the levers.

Is that high-tech or poor design? The entire mechanism there is delicate with tiny delicate plastic pins.

It all works great as long as nobody messes with it. Not very rugged though for a bike made to go offroad, IMO.
Folding levers might be the way to go if you keep the stock handguards considering how easy my handguard broke off in both places hanging there from the signal wires after laying it down in the dirt at a very slow speed.

Joe, can you get all fingers around the short levers? I don't think the short levers are in danger of connecting with the dirt or tarmac if it goes down.

We need somebody to lay their bike down and let everyone know if the short levers touch ground. Anyone?
