Post Brake Handle Mod
OK- My partner just got a 2009 Vino 125. She has small hands and is having trouble w/the brake handle. BIG trouble.
When she tries to use the front brake she really has to stretch to reach it. In the process she sometimes rolls the throttle...
You can see how this could be a major problem.
A dealer had suggested modifying the brake handles, but, we bought elsewhere, so now I don't know where to find [or fabricate] different handles.
Anybody out there have any suggestions?
THX,
Riobha

it may be possible to bend your levers, I know on dirt bikes some bend when crashing, but some snap.

just a thought, not sure if thats safe to do
