Levers and cables

It’s a finely crafted, highly tuned piece of precision engineering that you’ve spent good money on. And your life depends on it. So it makes sense to look after your machine well.

 Everything is exposed to the elements on a motorcycle, so you need to keep a watch on moving parts. Every month:

  • clean and re-grease the sidestand pivot
  • check rear suspension linkage and swingarm. Clean and re-grease as necessary
  • check clutch cable slack. Adjust, clean and lubricate if necessary
  • check the position and action of the brake and clutch levers. Are they exactly where you want them? Adjust if necessary and ensure knurled adjusters are working smoothly.
