    I swapped the front tire and flushed the brake on mine. Since I sold my tire machine I had to get creative as far as bead breaker goes. I wonder how many people use a vise as one.

    I enjoyed this. It reminded me of the one time I did a car tire on my 86 escort as a young fellow. I used a walk behind forklift to pick up a small turret lathe to use as a bead breaker. It worked...I don't know what I was thinking...

    Yeah man its humid as hell here. That fan is the ticket. I brought it last time but my extension cord wasn't long enough to reach the power source where I was parked. This summer has overstayed its welcome. Ready for some cooler weather for sure.

    I doubt most people have a vise big enough to reasonably use as a bead breaker - especially on something like the 130/80 I was removing.

    I bet that vise weighs as least as much as the Coats 205 tire machine I had.

    I'm gonna need to replace mine soon, links are starting to kink a bit. I have not researched, what link-count chain did you buy? And its 520 pitch, correct?

    After 3 weeks of waiting, my adjustable levers arrived.

    Cheap levers from China (FXCNC brand) so I mostly hoped they worked.

    My wife's arrived a week ago for her Rebel 500. Install and fit was just like OEM. Clutch works at any position. Brake works in any position but I feel the two closest to the grip may not allow for panic stops. So 4 of the 6 settings are useable.

    My install was also as expected. Even in the closest setting, I was able to get uncomfortably close to the front wheel locking on pavement from 45 mph. Clutch works anywhere... Mostly. The issue here is in positions 2 and 5, I had the lever jump to a lower setting when pulled. Not a big deal as in pulling it all the way in anyway but raises concern. If this happens on the brake lever, aside from being a surprise, it could prevent sufficient braking.

    So at this point, I can't recommend them. It's most likely I just got a bad lever and I can get the brake lever to mess up. I'll have to contact the seller and see if they'll warranty it.

    Also worth noting, I didn't see any Amazon reviews with this issue. I really think I just got a bad one but...

    One nice day last fall my bike was parked on the sloped grass in front of my house. It fell over. Broke my brake level. I ordered a chinese adjustable similar to yours. Works great, fits like an OEM part, cost pennies in comparison.

    I've had no issues with mine. I suspect that you will eventually get yours sorted out with Amazon and you'll end up happy.

    Thanks! I've gotta look into chains. I must research the clip link vs bradded link, clip link would be ideal, but I'm not sure of their reliability history. I dont think I've ever had a bike with a clip link, and I never have had to replace a chain on a bike. So I still have some research to do. The chain on my nc has not been cared for good, it was in pretty poor shape when I bought it. That whole general area is in need of a deep cleaning when I change the chain too. Will have to decide if sprockets need changing too. I imagine they are fairly cheap so might as well get them too while it's apart.
