The first thing to do when buying any motorcycle is make necessary ergonomic adjustments to the handlebars, levers, footpegs and foot controls, seat, and suspension so you can easily reach the grips with a relaxed bend in your elbows with feet and hands comfortably able to use all the controls. We show how we changed a Harley-Davidson Street 750 to better fit a short woman rider.
Can this really be true? Can you ride a Harley-Davidson motorcycle or an adventure bike like a BMW, without using the clutch lever when shifting gears? Yes you can with a product from Rekluse Clutches. With the EXP Performance Auto-Clutch installed in your motorcycle, your clutch hand is free to just hold the left handgrip so you can focus on the ride.
Adjustable brake and clutch levers are standard fare on most sport touring motorcycles, sportbikes, and some metric cruisers. But on Harley-Davidson models as well as the new Indian motorcycles, the levers from the factory are not adjustable, so riders with smaller hands struggle to reach the levers.
