What is the proper way to adjust the height of the brake and clutch levers?
By height, I am referring to the position/angle on the bars.
On my '08 GT, they are nearly horizontal. The levers are nearly level with the bars. This is somewhat uncomfortable and I want to rotate them down a bit, but the manual says not to. However, I think the previous owner (who might have been short) has rotated them back/up to suit him. I can't imagine they came from the factory this way.
I only need 10-20 degrees to get the levers more in plane with my arms. As it is now, my wrists are rotated back to operate the levers, and after an hour or so stuck in traffic, my clutch hand is killing me.
One reason I think the PO might have adjusted them is because I can see a mark on the brake side that looks as if it was the previous position. The same spot on the clutch side is covered by the ASC switch, so I can't tell.
I've tried a few of the screws that look as if they hold the switch block halves together, but this doesn't seem to do it. The black portion of the bars (the outboard part) is held by a bracket/rubber bushing setup, and doesn't appear as if it can be adjusted.
What am I missing?
I understand the dangers of rotating them too far and messing up the fluid reservoirs, but I am not looking to go that far.
There must be a way to do this!
Please help, I think I'm getting carpal-tunnel syndrome!!!
