Default Re: Clutch lever repair

Great tip, Maniac. Sure beats buying a new lever. Thanks for sharing.

Have you tried putting a small rubber 'O' ring on the locking pin where the snap ring is? I use a 3/32 ID 'O' ring there. It really quiets the "snap' sound when you release the lock and sounds more precision. It also eliminates some of the shock to the snap ring.

I also eliminate the snap ring, drill through the shaft of the locking pin and install a 1/16" cotter pin. The snap rings are notorious for coming off and then you can loose the pin and spring.
