on me bike i took the advice of some post i forget who did it, but the said to move the brake pedal in the spline instead of heating and bending. i did it and wow what a difference. two i notice from day one that my clutch let out way too soon. so i went to the adjuster at the lever and there was soooo much play. i adjusted and holy shit this is like a new bike to me. it is soo much smoother in shifting up and down.
