Ill probably come by but on the zx14 when you release the lever it compresses the plunger it doesn't release pressure on the plunger.

Really? Thats the exact opposite of every hydraulic system I've ever seen. You sure you aren't looking at the safety switch plunger?

Heh that'd be the plan! Troubleshooting 101 if don't work right put it back the way it was before your dumbass broke it.

To make things more entertaining I dropped the nut that attaches to the pivot bolt in the fairings last night removing the new lever :/

Ah I see what you guys mean I was looking at the safety switch not the plunger. Ill see if readjusting it and making sure its in the hole helps when I get home

Alright so I took off the lever, drilled out the housing that the plunger sits in another ~2mm to match what it roughly looked like on the stock lever and reinstalled the lever. It feels like it has a very small amount of free play on the lever pull now maybe ~5mm before you can feel the tension on the lever. So that should hopefully do it.

You're right, its not like I would have to replace a stator or a regulator/rectifier or new sprockets and a chain conversion to get access to a power band that was more street ridable or a custom seat so that it was comfortable enough to drag nadia around or the million other changes I would have made to the gixxer, that I will make to the ZX14 or that I will make to every bike I own!

Drilling, and tearing it apart and putting it back together is half the fun of owning a motorcycle!
