Lever steer not pedel.... Brake bands are to tight so they are kicking in before clutch even releases tracks.... we need to know how to back them off a bit ....this is all showing adjustments after bands have been set .... we need to know how to manually adjust brake bands ... Thanks for your time I appreciate the efforts
