If you want to move the whole lever assembly, remove the plastic allen bolt covers, insert the proper allen head (10?) unscrew, and adjust for your comfort. Most models have a pin located on the lever, that rests in a hole on the handle bars to keep it from slipping while riding. If this is the case, you can not move them without grinding off the pin locator.

How to release front brakes


There is a brake release lever either on the brakes themselves or on the brake handle. It will be the only thing that you can move without a tool besides the brake operating handle itself. If you can't find it, you can always deflate the tire. One other thought-- it is possible that the brakes were adjusted with the brake release lever in the wrong position. If that is the case, when you move the brake release lever you will tighten rather than loosen the brakes. Good luck

Adjust brakes


Brakes are very frustrating. Seeing how you have played around with these I am sure you already know where the adjustments nuts are. The one thing that is often overlooked by myself as well is the actual positions of the pads themselves before adjusting. The have been known to slip. Adjust those to the rim first and then adjust the calipers. I think you will have better luck with them this time.

Front brake pads on '95 FXSTSB Harley won't release after putting new brake lever on


the master cylinder on the handle bar is not adjusted properly, sounds like it is too tight and not letting the pressure bleed off. the handle connects to a rod that should have an adjustment on it. the new handle may not be made exactly the same, so the adjustment needs to be made to allow some slack in the stroke.

How to fit self adjusters to rear brakes


First off , I have to keep safety in the fore front of any answer i give pertaining to brakes and I must say that if you"ve never done brakes before, and your wanting to do this yourself, here are the things TO DO FIRST: 1) purchase a shop/owner repair manual that is specifically for your car. Have a note book and pen to write down notes through out your repair and have a positive attitude. in all reality I think Brake certified techs should handle the repair but who am I. Now if you have done the repairs necessary and are stuck at the self adjustment part heres how it goes, ... I always put the spring assemblies together first then attatch them to the hub. It makes it easier for me being a woman. the self adjusters i always like to have set at all the way screwed in position and then after installation is complete, I depress the brake pedal a couple of times and then adjust the slack with a brake tool. Now if you dont have a brake tool you can adjust the brakes by pumpimg the brake pedal slowly until the "self adjusters" have adjusted. Makes sense don't it? If this doesnt work, then something wasn't replaced correctly. But it will take quite a few pumps to harden the pedal to acknowledgable difference. Remember they are self adjusting. they will stop adjusting when your there.

Brakes will not lock in parking position


There are adjusters on the brake cables that are designed to solve this problem. The cables for the brakes run inside a flexible housing. When you squeeze the handle, the cable should engage the brake. The problem is that the cables inside the housing stretch over time and do not work as well. There is a threaded adjuster at the handle where the housing of the cable goes into the handle. If you turn this adjuster counterclockwise it will, in effect, make the housing longer and the brake cable tighter (shorter). This should engage the brakes better. It make take some trial and error, turning the threaded adjusters clockwise and counter-clockwise to get the proper setting for your strength and comfort. This same adjustment technique applies when you pull the handles down in the park position and when you squeeze them to slow down. Hope this helps.

748 brake conversion


lines and master cyl) front brake system from a 999. Should this bolt on to a 748 or are there any other mods needed.Check fit the master cylinders on your handle bars. The MC does not clear some 2 piece clip-ons. The reservoir on the 999 master cylinder sits very low and often hits the clip-on portion. If it does not clear your clip-ons---I know these will fit. We installed these on a 999 a few months ago. SPEEDYMOTO Adj. Clip-ons: 53mm Silver . You'll get a little bit of angle adjustment and a 5/8 rise for comfort as well.,
