Hi all,

I find the brake and clutch levers are set a little too high as standard so I’m thinking of moving them down a little.

Presumably this is just a case of backing off the clamps setting the position and re-tightening. Do they need to be torqued and if so what to?

Cheers,

Andy

I've done the same.

I didn't bother checking torque settings. I only used a small Allen key and it was hand tight with a tiny drop of blue locktite

i've also done this. From the 2016 workshop manual:

•Tighten the upper clamp bolt first, and then the lower clamp bolt. There will be a gap at the lower part of the clamp after tightening

Torque - Front Master Cylinder Clamp Bolts: 11 N·m, 1.1kgf·m, 97 in·lb
Torque - Clutch lever clamp bolts: 7.8 N.m, 0.80kgf.m, 69 in·lb
