Right got some new universal levers off the bay. Nice quality but one hitch, The adjuster on the clutch lever is too small to take the metal outer of the cable, so was going to use the original one. However obviously the new lever will have to be tapped to the adjuster. Does any one have a clue at the size of tap I would need and also the thread pitch. Probably would have been easier to buy original levers but hey ho.
Forgot to add it's a '97 nevada.

Apart from which, does the cable length match also? On my Tonti I sawed down the original adjuster to turn it into a spacer, the narrow (threaded) end will go into the new lever's adjuster and which made the cable inner length right too. (Otherwise too long.)

EDIT: alternatively file down the ferrule on the cable outer.

Hi Mike thanks for that, the cable length is fine, will give the filing a go.

Got it sorted, tapped out the new lever and used the Guzzi adjuster.
