  1. Hey Guys,

    Got a question about refitting the rear brake lever on the Suzuki Across. The old lever was bent so I took it off and am in the process of refitting the new one, but when I push the lever all the way on and try to put the 10mm screw in the end to hold it, it wont grab and do up. The thread on the screw hits the cog the lever goes over and wont screw up. Hope this makes sense to the Across owners.

    So my question, Is there a knack or special trick to getting this screw done up? I've tried hitting it on, putting it halfway on and the likes but it wont budge, which makes me think that I may have the wrong screw replaced by the previous owner?

    Thanks in advance.
