1. Tools needed

All the tool you need were provided in the AM Toolkit you got with your bike

- a flat screwdriver

This guide will approximately takes 30 min to complete

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

You can use a pen to leave a mark where the cable clamp is biting in the brake cable so you can clamp it back to the same setting when you're done

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

Make sure the arrows line-up when you connect the cable, if the connectors don't line up you can bend the pins inside voiding the warranty.

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

If you followed the advice of step 3, just clamp it to where you left the mark on the cable.
