Thumbs up Re: clutch and brake lever set up

Sorry, no hand grips yet, still a work in progress!
I may try an few ways on this , I see I am not the only one who feels strange to the left hand side . (not to be confused with an song lol ) I will try this set up first . I will work on lever ideas that you dont have to remove the grips every time you might have to fool with them too ( another idea for an setup ). The thing about the brake lever on the right throtle side is when I pull on it ,,, my palm wants to roll the throtle ,,, haveing the clutch on the throtle side is even worse .. been there and I changed it to the left .. I still feel like the mountain bike for some reason ,, my bike will go 36 mph strait out the box though ! on an flat surface. but thanks for the reply everybody .... and if you have time post some pictures of your setup fisherman and let me know how you like it ..
