CB400 Gear Lever Height Adjustment

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by Geoffrius, Jan 21, 2012.

  1. Hi All,

    N00b question alert. :newb:

    Recently bought some new boots and now I find the gear lever just a tad too low which sometimes causes me to bump it out of gear as I move my foot out of the way post gear change.

    So > is it as easy as just loosening these two nuts (below) and winding the bar to move it up etc?

    I'm slowly improving my mechanical knowledge...slowly :p Couldn't see anything when I RTFM'd.

    Thanks for your help.

  2. Yes. Yes it is. Make sure you do the nuts back up when you're finished.

  3. lengthening the bar will drop the lever, shortening will raise it
  4. and just to be technical, one end is a right-handed thread, and the other is a left-handed thread....
  5. Thanks guys :)

    Took me a bit of grunting and swearing until I realized they were loosened in different directions !!

    All good now though!
