Clutch lever rattle after removing OEM handgaurds

13 posts in this topic

I have the same problem, I think there is a mod over at 4strokes in the technical section that will fix the problem. If not, I am going to try to find a small washer and just shim it until it stops rattling. Just making sure that it does not make it catch and it still moves smoothly.

Mine did same thing. Just get a big pair of channel lock plyers and squeeze the mounting bracket. You can bend it just enough to stop the rattling.

Thinking it might be good to use nylon or brass washers? Would a SS washer wear the aluminum clutch assembly too much?

The O-ring is good because it will allow the lever to move a bit when the bike goes down. Might save a break.

My lever moves up and down a lot- its great, its always in just the right place whether I'm sitting or standing. Must pivot vertically 2 inches, at least.
