Clutch/Brake Lever Replacement
« on: August 16, 2017, 06:44:03 PM »
I just picked up some new levers off of Amazon that I'll be switching out shortly. I've never done those before and it looks pretty straightforward, but before I begin I was curious if there were any tips/tricks/advice or any hidden gremlins so I can avoid any rookie mistakes. I did a quick search and didn't really see anything other than people saying they had swapped them out.

Use all purpose grease in the pivot points on the levers and a little where the clutch cable rides in the lever. Also a small spot of grease on the contact point between the lever and master cylinder plunger.
