Waht levers are you using?

On some of the shorty levers they'll hit the switch housing on some bikes before they contact the clutch safety switch.
Most switches can be adjusted.
If you get a chance, swing by and I'll look at it, no charge.

When I installed my Pazzo's my clutch lever had way too much play. Tightened it up by the adjustment down at the clutch cover and works perfect now. The switches and the adjustment on the cable up top were not enough for me to tighten it back to how it was before I changed levers.

they are the vortex ones. It doesnt go back all the way after I shift. First gear is tricky i have trouble finding the friction zone. I will try to tighten it down low and let ya'll know tonight.
