Front brake lever

Recommended Posts

My front brake lever has a little free movement at the beginning of stroke which is just enough to trigger the brake light switch. So when I'm riding along the light flickers on/off with the bumps.

i can't see a way of adjusting this out - any ideas ?

There should be a small spring, which may be missing?  Looks like a Spring from a ballpoint pen.  If missing, the lever might bounce around.  

Or your lever may be worn at pivot point...take it off and see what “slop” you have between lever and bolt.

Either way, take it apart
