I've had my new adjustable levers sitting around for a week or two and i'm ready to go ahead and swap them out but i've got a question or two for the crowd.

1) Is it necessary to bleed the brake/clutch after the lever change?

2) What type of lubrication, if any, do the levers need?

Levers go on with out any bleeding.
Most Brembo levers come with a little waterproof grease on the pivots.

Well being such a nice day down south I slapped on the brake levers. Thanks for the bleeding tip. I did crack open the coffins to check the adjustment screw. Looks like i'm a bit low on brake fluid so its a good thing I checked. Levers went on in about 5 minutes each and I can say it seems to have improved the clutch feel greatly. Now the "friction zone" is controlled by the fingers instead of the fingertips.

One important side note: check those lever pin nuts, (the crappy nuts that hold the levers on). I've only got 175 miles on the bike so far that the brake lever nut was loose. Some tie wraps will fix that!
