Default Re: Arranging shifter, brakes and throttle when left hand doesnt work very well

back on topic
yes as ppl said above u can use the throttle and double brake on the right side.
however using the left shifter for the clutch may be more difficult that using the lever.
U can move the derailleur by hand, but u cant move the clutch by hand.. it is much stiffer. I suggest maybe mounting on the top of the handle bars in the middle somewhere, so u can just press down on it. or turn in backwards on ur side of the bars, pointing to the ... left and use ur thumb instead (or) right and just push forward.
