I didnt use the stock clutch leaver as a bought one is so much better, better pull, feel, quality. Now how to lock it back for ide tuning etc. I thought of a heavy gauge wire and bending two hooks in it to hook back the leaver when needed. Just a thought so far. What do you guys think?

Why not just buy a locking break lever from your LBS? They're cheap (under $15 for a pair) and they work great. The levers and cables that come with these kits are junk and the first things I replace...Kelly

I replaced the cable in the locking lever during m ybuild but it's time I got a whole new one.

I did look at one from my LBS and it was a bit dodgy too. theres no need to lock it back while your out hey? unless the motor was playing up and you needed pedal power home, then I guess you could just hold it in while you pedaled. Im still in the process of building so not up on the riding as yet.

IMO: with no neutral, you're gonna want to be able to lock the clutch out.

i have the alloy locking lever that came with my kit, far as i'm concerned it's just fine 8)
