Fitting new levers to an 06 R1

I purchased some Folding and extendable span adjuster levers off the bay £40 from a supplier 2wheels
I went for red (dark pink lol) adjusters and titanium colour levers)

So on to fitting them, started on the brake site as it's the easiest :P

Unscrew the nut on the underside of the lever bracket (10mm spanner)
Image
Image

unscrew and remove the pivot bolt from the top with a flat head screw driver
Image
Image

remover the lever
Image

put the new lever in place (make sure it's the brake lever)
Image

replace the pivot bolt from the top with a flat head screw driver and tighten
Image

replace and tighten the nut on the underside of the lever bracket
Image

adjust span to suit your hand size
Image

with an allen key loosen the length adjuster screw and slide lever to required length then re-tighten
Image
Image

check flip up action is working correctly
Image

brake side complete,
Image
for piece of mind you don't have slightly pressed brakes place front end of bike on paddock stand and check front wheel spins freely

Clutch lever
apply a pice of masking tape and mark position of lever bracket to bar
Image

Loosen lever bracket (8mm spanner)
Image

twist lever to gain access to pivot nut
Image

remove pivot nut (10mm spanner)
Image

Remove pivot bolt
Image

Remove lever releasing clutch cable by slot at the same time
Image
Image

attach clutch cable to new lever
Image

remove pivot bolt bush from old lever and insert into new lever
Image
Image

put lever into place and insert pivot bolt
Image

replace and tighten the nut on the underside of the lever bracket
Image

Image
re-align lever bracket and tighten lever bracket bolt

adjust span and lever length as before
Check and adjust clutch to make sure clutch is engaging properly!

Your levers are now fitted
