robb Posted March 24, 2015 Share Posted March 24, 2015 So I'm kind of an attention to detail freak with my machines, as mechanical failure by set up or maintenance is not an option for me. So when I buy a machine new or used, the first thing I do is re-check the torque of installed bolts, cable routing, fluids ect. And as I was doing so I happened to find that my handlebar to caps were installed backwards and improperly. Although it looks as it was installed correctly the setup manual specifically states that it should be installed with the angled part of the cap forward, with the punch mark on the handlebars on the lower left cap aligned and the front bolts tightened first closing the tolerance on the front, then tightening the rears first. I had to take off the caps and correct this on mine. Probably not a huge safety issue, but be sure your caps are installed this way per the manual.
