    Hello everyone,
    after much thinking, I've just ordered the PUIG 3.0 levers (+ fittings for Z900), which I paid 56 x 2 = 112 taking a little advantage of a "black friday discount".
    I was happy and going to have a cup of tea, when I read this on the PUIG web site:

    "As for the assembly of these, the levers are delivered with detailed instructions and do not require modification of the motorcycle. In case it is the first time that a set of handles is purchased, you must also buy the set of specific fittings for your motorcycle, since the Puig handles are not assembled with the original fittings. The assembly of the fittings must be carried out by a specialized mechanic, since before circulating, due to modifications in the models of the brake pump, the wheel must be raised with a trestle to check that the wheel is not braked. If it is braked, it can cause the brakes to lock."

    I don't fully understand this.
      First: why do I need a trestle to check if the front wheel is braked? Can't I just move the bike and check?
      Second: what am I supposed to do if the front wheel is braked?

    Thanx in advance to anyone for explanations.
