Clutch Lever

Heyy y'all


My question today would be this:


The biting point on my clutch is really close to the lever being fully open and my little hands it cn be a struggle to let it out smoothly. (spose after time i would get used to it) but its really uncomfortable.

But is there anyway i can change the point of bitin with a cltuch adjstment or something? or jst a new lever will do it (and if this is a way will any lever fit?)


Thanks muchlyy

Hey Josh. Now I've got Rennie here and he had to do this to my clutch lever cos of the same reason.


He says there is a big knurled lock nut on the cable next to the end of the lever. Slacken this nut and turn the threaded adjuster on the end of the cable in or out until you get it right, then do knurled nut up again. Exactly the same as on a pedal bike brakes.

No, sorry mate........but my advice would be to lay off the hand cream for a while! :D

Ha ha ha! I am fully aware of the horrible affliction of extremely dry hands! I've worked with chemicals most of my working life and have suffered with a really bad out-break of dermatitis. Had to take a month or two off work!


That was a year or so ago and fingers crossed, no pun intended it's kept away!!! In fact, it delayed my bike lessons as well!


I still use hand cream regularly.....so no nastiness intended! :thumb:


Plus, I have quite big hands so that's a lot of cream to rub in!....Oooeerrrr, Matron!


Ride safe, matey!

back on topic,


leave 5mm free play/slack when adjusting the lever. and wind the large nut (locknut back to the lever perch..

if the adjuster is too far out, then wind all the way back in, follow cable and adjust lightly at other end, then go back to lever to adjust again..


have fun
