The newer bikes have different master cylinders and levers and no adjusters like the "original" 2014-16 R Nine T's had. I wouldn't say they were "updated", it's just crap "old style" stuff vs crap "new style" stuff. Both styles are bargain basement components.Hey guys,.. I've read this and a couple other threads multiple times.. Am I missing something or is the updated verion (2016/17) clutch lever not adjustable?
Yep. That's the general idea. You're seeing the piston pumping fluid. It comes out the port (and disturbs the fluid in the reservoir) until the piston moves far enough to close the port and start the actual braking.Ok so is this the pulse or burb?
The idea is to adjust the lever till you don't see any burb, then screw backward just enough to see the burb + half a turn backward (for safety so it won't lockup) ?
Very impressed. The Brembo master upgrade makes it very clear what a POS the OE master is. Pads also help but only in the sense that they provide more bite. On the front they aren't the HUGE improvement they make on the rear.
Took ur advice, removed the set screw (it was super hard) cleaned it and put blue tread locker. Didn't had the purple.FWIW I wouldn't use a hi-strength thread locker on the grub screw. That can come back to bite you. I used purple Loctite 222 when I was adjusting the OE master.
