I use them and they are great. Adjustable to almost any size of hands.  :001:

I had an issue with some V-Trec ones that were a poor fit. Changed them for these and they are much better.

Why not consider converting to a hydraulic clutch....lots of people used to do it on dirt bikes with something similar to this....

Not sure what the implications it would have on the cruise controls etc!

Steve in the description it says with no shiftgear.
Not quite sure what that means but a lot of levers are not compatible with the S1XR because of the quickshifter attachment best check first hate to see you buy levers that don't work.

I too can vouch for the Synto levers.  Beautiful and well built.  I didn't like the looks of the Evo versions though.  I bought the regular length also on both sides, and am very happy with them.  Went with black with red knobs.

Make sure to do your research also.  Not all work with the GSA and cruise, AFAIK.  Pretty sure I read that Puig doesn't, for example.  The Rizoma ones do though I think.  And Pazzo doesn't make them yet for our bikes.
