    maybe i worded that wrong,,,, but the fulcrum is in a different spot, thats how they reduce pull force, so its not possible to adjust the length of throw for clutch engagement, its a longer zone of movement. you can only adjust where the engagement zone happens within the levers range of motion.

    the brake lever was awesome,,, they both did what they were advertised to do.

    If it is missing, it's easy to make with a 4mm aluminium rod, a round file and some epoxy glue.

    No, I retrofitted the newer one after I got the dreaded worn bore.
