No, new levers won't expand the friction zone. I have adjustable levers and while they're more comfortable to use, the clutch is still engaged in the first 1/4 pull of the lever.Will new levers fix the range? I am not a huge fan of it being right at the end of the lever travel.
You had a bike that didnt require shifting? What was it?This was my first bike that required shifting so I didn't realize all bikes weren't like this, but now having ridden something that engages at the half way point I'd rather it be there then at the very end like this one is setup.
Ahh, Thanks for the clarification...I thought he might have been referring to those electric bikes. I saw a video on youtube that converted an r1 to an electric bike and a few that have been used in racing...I wouldn't mine owning when if they could stretch out the milage a bit farther on them.some of the smaller bikes like 50-125's don't shift, mopeds dont shift, and most scooters don't shift. technically they are bikes (two wheels ).
I had an Aprilia Mana GT, 850cc sport touring bike with a CVT on it.
I guess its a good thing I decided against picking up that ducati monster then...although a part of me still secretly wants one.Italian bikes are nice to ride, but it was very finicky and had lots of problems and anything that goes wrong will cost you big $$$ and you'll be waiting on parts for a month.
