Dead spot with ASV Shorty Brake Lever on 675R?

Hi all,

Got a 2012 675R and just installed an ASV shorty brake lever. I noticed immediately that there seems to be a dead spot for the first inch where there's little to no brake power, and then after all the brake power comes in. This wasn't the case with the OEM lever. Does anyone have this experience with a shorty brake lever? If so, any way to fix this? Thanks

The one time I've had an issue with an accessory brake lever it was down to the small pushrod between the lever and the cylinder. I took the one from the stock lever and that fixed it. YMMV

Thanks for the response. When you say small pushrod, do you mean the black plunger pin that sticks out of the OEM lever? AVS supplied their own that I've installed. If so, is the OEM plunger removed off the lever by turning the nut?

Just so. As to installation I have no idea. I had a similar problem on my Duke which has a non-radial MC and that's how I fixed that.

Gotcha. Was it also an ASV lever? If so, I'm surprised by this since they're a premium name
