Clutch lever adjustment needed

Postby zosia » Mon May 20, 2013 1:07 am



Just got my 1999 1500 trike, and my hand isn't up to pulling the clutch lever in. Too stiff, too wide. Where can we find an adjustment maker?
Thanks.

It's hydraulic no adjustment..they do make aftermarket levers that reduce the gap..

Sorry if this sounds sarcastic... but here is the rest of the answer.

Here is one source you might check. http://wingstuff.com/shop/levers_access ... esync=done
I found a few more on a Google search.

I went back and looked at the offerings at WingStuff. Most of those adjustables are for the 1800! I wonder how different they are from the 15?

I'm having trouble finding levers for the 1500, too. Anyone know if those for the 1500 and 1800 are the same?

No they are not the same , I tried to fit 1800 levers but they were too wide for the pivot point, after I found that out I stopped comparing them. 8-)

You need to get levers for a 1500...even though they may not be adjustable, some are designed to reduce the pull or force required to actuate the clutch or brake. I got mine from chromeworld.com
