control set up for the track

Postby AllenTron10R » Sat Jul 12, 2014 2:33 pm

I am going to be doing some pre track day maintenance this weekend. I was wondering if there was an ideal set up from my clutch and brake. I've read other places I should turn them down some from the stock position. To align them more in a straight line with my arm vs having my wrist curled up. Thoughts? opinions?

Do whatever feels the most comfortable for you. Personally, I like mine turned down farther, both on street and on track -- the whole wrist curling thing is very uncomfortable for me.

Wife seems to like a split, one with the clutch control farther up than the brake. A bit strange for me, but s noted whatever works for you.
Shitty planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.

after turning them down yesterday about as far as they go without rubbing, im really happy with it. the break is a little higher than the clutch but i dont seem to notice it much. when i switch the levers out and replace the break lines ill probably try to make some room to get the brake down the rest of the way. but after the adjustments we did yesterday i'm pretty happy

Are you set for next weekend, or do you need something for that? I have an old pair of AGVSport gauntlets you could use if they fit you and you're in a pinch.
