I have a feeling this has been discussed, but I asked the committee and no one can give a good answer.

How to adjust the angle of the clutch and brake lever--- no, not the amount that they "Open", but the angle that causes you to reach over and down for the clutch, or brake...

Hard to describe but looking a the bars from the side, how to adjust the inclination, or declination of the levers?

Or one more way of saying it, if the left hand grip is the center of the clock, (looking from the side) the clutch lever is now at about 8:00 MST, and I want it up to about 9:00 MST, or maybe even 9:30/10:00...

I don't think you can. I remember something about a locating pin or something.

I'm sure my KRS had a small amount of rotational movement (I think that's what you mean), because I went from the stock full forward position to more upright riding with the BMW comfort risers and remember rotating the whole assembly a small amount before tightening the clamp bolts. It's a while since I did it ,so humble pie if it doesn't work for you.

Hey thanks- thats what I was hoping- can you tell where the Clamping Bolts are located?

As I look at it- it is not obvious to me. There are also screws to apparently remove the switchgear covers but there must be a secret screw in there somewhere cause I cannot break the code on that either.

thanks
Bob

The illustrations in the factory manual suggest that the controls are held on in a manner very similar to the brake levers on a ten speed bicycle.

Maybe these pages from the manual, along with the others that are posted will help you!
