1800 Clutch Lever

Postby cbx4evr » Fri Apr 08, 2011 2:46 pm



Curious. What does the numbered dial on the clutch lever do in the way of adjustment on an 1800??

Will this lever fit a 1500??

It's a span adjuster, it adjusts the distance from the handlebar to the lever (1 is the largest distance to 5 being the smallest). I have no idea if it would fit a 1500, it doesn't change the feel/force of the clutch just adjust how far you have to reach to touch the clutch lever. Useful if you have small hands.

I always wondered about those numbers 1-5. Now I know.

When changing the positions on those levers you need to push the lever forward to engage the mechanism for the change to take. When i got my bike I had Kury levers on it and had to keep the clutch position in # 1 or two to be able to start the bike in a gear other than neutral. I put the OEM levers on it and can start the bike in any gear.

According to my knowledge they may not work..My friend gave me a used sets of lever as he recently sold his 1800 by replacing the original lever ..I tried a lot but they don't fit to 1500..seems completely different angles where they meet at brackets...
