Anyone else wish that the UCE had the Neutral Finder Lever?
« on: October 28, 2014, 04:45:55 AM »
Rode my buddies older 4-speed right side shift Bullet today and really played around with the neutral finder lever.

I know, I know, the UCE is easy to get into neutral and has a sexy new green light...maybe its just nostalgia and something else to break or come out of adjustment, but the damn thing started making sense once I played with it a bit.

Trouble is they only really work if you press the lever whilst the bike is still rolling.  When it's stationary it almost always blocks part way down.  Too fiddly for me.
2014 B5, stock apart from disabled auto-decomp.  Also ride a Kawasaki Versys 650 for everyday use.

'02 500ES (Fully "Hitchcocked" - 535, cams, piston, etc - and still a piece of junk)

On the UCE, it will never look as good as the lever on the albion 4 speed  :-X

It's cute.
But I think the real reason it was on there was because they couldn't stop the clutch dragging, which made it hard to get neutral, so they put a lever on there for it.

I can put mine in neutral from just about any gear I want to - well, maybe not the neutral, but a neutral...
