I realize the 14-15 Sparks have already made the show circuit with no changes to the lean adjuster, but I'd sure like something with a little less fiddle factor.
Set it once, turn once to tour, turn once to ride. I 'm begging, is it too much to ask? :bow:

I'm not so sure if they will be unchanged for next year. But a better forward lean would sure be nice. Maybe a nice summer project?

Karakoram's solution is great:

Would love to see a similar solution on Sparks.

I agree, I'd love to see Spark offer something simple like that....

What happened to "The Cube" idea a few years back? Something like this. . .

Off center mounted rectangle which give easy adjustment to four different highback angles.

The only problem with the cube was the adjustment is quite "coarse". I'd take course over fiddling around with my adjusters in 40mph winds with spindrift blinding me though.....

Bring back the cube!!!!! Maybe add a fifth side for those wanting finer increments?
After using the cube the current system is just too fiddly for impatient curmudgeons like me. It's my only gripe about my Burners :twocents:
