Title: What is the dial on the brake lever used for?
Post by: Miracle_Salad on August 10, 2017, 08:46:15 am
This is likely in the manual, but I cant seem to find what the little numbers signify on the front brake lever. Mine is currently on 2?

I know what the clutch dial does, is it similar on the brake lever? I just don't understand though why someone would want to reduce/modify anything to do with the brakes, offroad perhaps  :peepwall:?

If the same as the older bikes, it adjusts the lever distance from the grips, so those with smaller hands can still reach the lever ergonomically correctly.  8) :sip:

Indeed!  Someone read the manual properly. 

1 = More Capcitory and less Fluxatory.
4 = Less Capacitory and more Fluxatory.

Nope. The canbus is adjusted on the right hand side just on the right of the main headlights

I think that you are referring to the retroencabulator!!. The Canbus Flux generating capacitor is used for Bimodial capacitive duractince to adjust the panametric fan.

Panametric fan?  Pffft.  You clearly have no knowledge.  BMW stopped using that on the 2004 models already.  You obviously meant the Ventilateur fan, which is on the LC.
