Manual A/R lever
« on: 30.03. 2019 21:53 »
Morning all,
Just wonder which side (left or right) do riders find the placement of the manual A/R lever most effective from a functional point of view?  Can you make minor adjustments while also operating the throttle or is the lever best placed on the left?

Cheers.

Usually the advance lever is on the left and the choke on the right.

Went for a long ride on the A65 today and tried to imagine tweeking a lever on the right while operating the throttle...not easily done.  Left it is.

On the left is the customary place but whatever feels best for you is the place to put it.

Definitely left, to be able to balance lever and throttle action.
