I've been looking into a merge preload adjuster , they are no longer made but maybe a group buy might influence

That would be perfect for the 690.

That does look pretty sweet. I'd be down for one if somebody can get it done for the 690...

That's why MuffinMan started the 690 Wiki. In an attempt to sort through all the clutter and flufff and have an easy reference directory, so if you have a good bit of info that every 690 owner should have please let him know so he can upload it.

mileage has nothing to do with it. Using a screwdriver to adjust those original spindly rings is a recipe for disaster. If you have one of the improved beefier ones you can hack away with it all day with your screw driver.

I've tried searching, but to no avail...

How can I lower both the gear lever and the rear brake pedal?
Im 6'5", making especially the brake a real pain in the ass to get to both standing and sitting.

I'm assuming the gear lever I can just slide off and rotate down a little.
But the rear brake? how does one get that lower in relation to the foot peg?

A higher seat?
