Clutch/brake lever adjust.

Postby Mariner » Thu Dec 25, 2014 6:01 pm



Anybody have any tips on adjusting the little round knobs on the clutch and front brake? Like what the heck are they for? I just have them in the middle. Every now and then I move them up or down a notch. Last week I got a little crazy and moved one up a notch and the other down a notch!
Seriously, these things supposed to do something or am I to obtuse to notice the effect?

Well, first, in order to adjust them, you need to push them in the opposite direction from their actual operating direction, and then adjust the numbered knobs. They adjust for smaller or larger hands, and grip length. Yes, they do work. Try them all the way to 0 and then all the way to 5. You will notice the difference.

Must be doing something wrong cause I don't see a difference... Oh well, bike runs fine anyway in spite of my limited knowledge.
