The whole thing is a royal pain in the behind and should have never left the factory without an easier method of adjustment, just typical Guzzi character. I still love my Guzzis and some of their character traits.Brian
Brian, one of the best things I did was get a pair of levers off AliExpress, adjustable, foldable, extendable and done in matching red and black bits almost exactly the same red as the Breva. All done in CNC'd 6061 alloy. The shape of the lever is that when it is pulled in the lever follows the handlebar exactly and gives just that bit more cable travel. I have very short fingers and have the lever adjusted as close to the bar as it will go, and still the clutch disengages perfectly.Best $44-00 I ever spent on the bike, and I got the pair for the same price as one muck metal Guzzi lever.
Brian, I have my lever set that there is close to 4mm of cable travel before any firmness in the pull sets in, then there is a total movement of 16mm. Lever is set as close to the handlebar as it will go.I have REALLY short fingers, hence a fair amount of travel before anything happens. No clutch drag and goes in to first real easy. Will try to come up with the site and try to organise a photo.https://www.aliexpress.com/item/GT-Motor-F-16-D-37-Adjustable-CNC-3D-Extendable-Folding-Brake-Clutch-Levers-For-MOTO/32803624065.html?spm=a2g0s.90423220.127.116.11624c4dtlf3oLI bought the no. 1 red; looks really sharp.
Have bought a fair bit of stuff off them Joe. Only one deal went sour (actually, it was a set of the same levers only with "Moto Guzzi" etched on them). Ali express refunded the full amount.The levers I got are pretty high quality for the price. In fact, I would call them superb at this stage. Look and are finished way better than the original.Aliexpress is not actually a shop. It is the ordering centre for a huge number of online stores. They list the store and then you deal direct with the store. Any hiccups, if you can't sort it with the store you can take it up with Aliexpress, and they will sort it.The shops appear to try really hard to give a really good service. Not too long ago Aliexpress came up with a rating system for each store. Poor performance and the stats show up.edit. You will find that numerous shops will have the same brand of a product but the price can really vary. You can sort for the cheapest (Guzzi content ) which I do, and then balance with the shop's rating.
Muzz,Thanks for the information. So it sounds like Aliexpress is similar to Ebay or Amazon, eh? I'll give them a look the next time I make an online purchase.Joe
Hello to all from a still wet Sale. Many thanks to sign216, Muzz, malik et al, for the wise words. I'll try the simple stuff first by lowering it on the splines and then take it from there. Ted R.
