Yeah, but do you use a hacksaw or what? what the best thing for cutting aluminum.

A hacksaw is your best bet for cutting metal and aluminum is no sweat. A file and/or sandpaper will clean up the end pretty well. Your other option is to buy shorter levers.

A hacksaw or cutoff wheel with a die grinder:thumbsup: :cry:

Use a file and some 80 grit sandpaper to smooth up the ends...

A bolt cutter works quite well also.It's quick and painless!:cry:

Before cutting the balls off your levers try sliding the perches inwards on the bars. I use Enduro Engineering handguards with the stock levers intact.
