Clutch lever post screw
« on: November 08, 2019, 04:32:31 PM »
Just about to change levers. Is it wise to put a bit of loctite on the clutch lever post screw?

The HP levers come with a little blue patch so I would guess yes.

I didn’t bother the nuts a locker anyway but make sure the spring levers on  the switch’s are under the clutch lever plenty on here with photos if you don’t get it right the cruise won’t work.

I took it he meant the tiny little screw that gets transferred to the new lever to activate the micro switch (I think it is a T5 from memory)  - that has a little loctite on it - as you say the main pivot post is a torx top and 10mm locking nylock nut underneath.

I didn't use any loctite and mines fine.
