Are your levers aligned the way you like them? Kind of odd looking since most I have seen are pretty much positioned at the same angle...

Wait a sec, you run the brake lever low like how the clutch lever is in the pic? Not good :thumbsup: . Need to raise the clutch to the level that the brake lever is at in those pics if anything. Nice bike though!

i agree with adam they should both be up where the brake lever is. You don't brake while hunched over the front, maybe thats why the endo happened.

Try being 6'5 and have arms like a ape. Trust me I know how to set a bike up for my liking. Levers low help Tall guys keep there elbows up. You think mine are low you should see Dv12's wow.

if i recall correctly david vuillemin runs his levers extremely high. when your on the brakes you should be on the back of the bike no matter how big you are. if your levers are that low you cant reach them:bonk:

I beg to differ. It all depends on the person I can sit on my rear fender and reach my levers how tall are you? Kinda what I figured. Go to a gary Bailey school he will tell ya the deal on levers.:thumbsup:

nah matt I did not make it - it was quite a mess for sure. It is however the best race of the supercross series - year after year - I wish all the other SX were run the same - the riders the fans the watching on the track - it can not be beat. Blows the other SX races away - glad u had a blast.

hey run your levers like u want - you do not have to give a explanation to anyone.
