Thanks

I'm a new owner with no owners manual...just ordered one. I have a few more questions but I'll take some pics and post tomorrow

Hi Doug, Yes that lever unlocks the pillion rests, but they are sprung loaded in the "Up" position. You have to push them both down together with the lever pulled to lower them and they can only be locked in the "Up" or "Down" position, no half measures! The point I am trying to make is if you pull the lever and nothing happens then the rests are fully up.
Hope this helps a bit more.
Cheers.
