scalzitti Talked to a manufacturer awhile back and was told a new master cylinder would be required.
Also on my first try the cast lever material snapped when I heated it up and tried to bend it.
Looking for ideas.

I run a small motorcycle training school in northeast IL (Chicago Motorcycle Training - LRN2RYD) and for some of my more height challenged riders the Rebels is too big. 2 major problem areas come up.
1 - Reach to the levers - hard to do with small hands.
2 - Reach to the ground - had a rider yesterday on her tip toes and the reach to the forward mounted controls is literally a stretch.

Any feedback on either area is appreciated. Larry

davidc Thanks for the reply. So i guess it's not that simple.

Anyway, I can get by with my current setup. Hopefully I will be able to adjust as time goes by.

flitecontrol There is a limited amount of adjustment with the OEM levers. You may need to find some adjustable levers to fit your hands. This is what I found with a quick search: adjustable levers motorcycle - Google Search

Didn't see any for a Rebel, but suppose you could get a set for another bike that has 7/8" bars and be OK. Might also require different cable ends and possibly master cylinder. Never done it, so not sure.

Buickguy Correct terminology, the problem is the levers aren't adjustable that way.

Some folks have bent them a touch but I've never seen it done.
Kawasaki had an adjustable lever setup but I don't know of anyony adapting them to the Rebel

Clutch and Brake Lever adjustment

Hi Everyone,

I have small hands and was wondering if I can adjust the Clutch and Brake Lever (I hope I used the correct terminnology). I wanted to pull it a bit closer so I don't have to always reach out for the brakes or clutch.

I checked the User's Manual but did not find an if you have some instructions with images I will appreciate it.

I apologize if I used the wrong terms. Newbie here.

Thanks in advance.
