AMX Brake Lever Installation
This is a guide on how to install the alternative longer pull AMX Brake Levers, or if you need to change your brake levers.
1. Tools needed
All the tool you need were provided in the AM Toolkit you got with your bike
- a 5mm hex key
- a 3mm hex key
- a flat screwdriver
2. Remove the grips
Use the 3mm hex key to loosen the two grips bolts
You can then slide the grips off the handlebar, there is a cap at the end of the bar, if you pull with enough force it will come out with the grip. Repeat on the other side.
3. Loosen the cables
Loosen the front and rear cable clamp bolts using the 5mm hex key
4. Free the cables
Once the cables are loose, you should have enough slack to pull the cables out of the brake levers. To do so, line up the barrel adjustment slots with the brake lever slot so you can slide the cable out.
Once everything is aligned you can easily slide the cable out
Using a flat screwdriver you can unclip the cable clip
Then disconnect the brake safety e-cable
Repeat all the steps on the other side.
5. Remove the brake levers
Using the 5mm hex key undo the single bolt that clamp the brake lever to the handlebar
You can then slide the brake lever off the handlebar
Repeat on the other side.
5. Install the new brake levers
Simply slide in the new lever onto the handlebar
To have the brake lever flush with the grip, slide the grip onto the handlebar
Don't forget the cap
Once the cap is secure, tighten the grip bolts using the 3mm hex key. Adjust your brake lever to the desired position and tighten the clamp bolt using the 5mm hex key.
Re-connect the brake safety e-cable
Place brake cable end inside the cable holder of the brake lever
Lime-up the barrel adjuster slots and slide the cable in
Re-connect the cable clip
Hold the brake cable and clamp the brake calliper bolt to your desired position
