Difficulty fitting 2-finger levers to 2014 LC.
« on: August 10, 2016, 05:53:53 pm »
Bought a set of 2-finger levers from Runner on Monday, and am really battling to get them fitted.
How do you strip the exisitng lever, to get the actuater pin out to fit it to the new lever?

Easy question,  next time a challenge,  please.
Answer: go to Runner.
Remember to tell him he's a po3s,  and ask for your discount.

Morning,

I have a question for those members who have fitted these levers...did you manage to use all 6 reach functions opposed to the 4 on the standard BMW levers?

I have fitted a set, but it only engage the clutch switch from setting 3 onwards (longer reach) after adjusting about everything I could.

Am I missing an adjustment setting somehow?

Regards,
Jaco

Not good news, thanks Draadwerk. I bypassed the switch, so I think my cruise control and if / when I fit a quick shifter will be a problem. The first switch seems to be a safety for not starting the bike in gear...will have to test and see. Will contact Bikegear tomorrow.

Jip, as suspected the cruise control does not work now. Will have to sort out this week.

Also agree with above the two-finger levers not really an improvement. My issue with the LC clutch lever is when the bike stall and to restart you have to pull the clutch completely which is a problem when riding with two fingers, would like to know which switch to bypass without compromising the essentials.
