1. Start with your most-used controls: the clutch lever and front brake lever. The angle of the controls should be such that you can comfortably cover the levers with two fingers. To establish a starting position, sit upright (as you would when braking hard), and form a straight line with your arms that extends from your shoulders to your fingertips. You want your levers to be right under your fingers in this position. Any significant angle in your wrist will make it difficult to cover the controls and reduce your effective pull strength. To adjust the lever angle, loosen the pinch bolts and rotate the controls to the desired position. Watch out for interference with bodywork. Some controls are pinned or have limited adjustment, so be aware and don't force the issue.
