    Formula R0 2015 lever and master cylinder removal

    Hi guys,

    I need to remove the lever of my Formula r0 2015, but I can't : on screw can come easily, but the other is turning with the axle. I did not find a way to block the axle to remove the second bolt.

    In fact I disassembled the master cylinder by removing the circlip for a deep clean and grease, but it is a nightmare to put it back without removing the lever.

    Can someone help or has already done this thing?

    Thank you.

    If youíre just trying to remove the lever pivot pin, Iím pretty sure thereís a little set screw that threads through lever body perpendicular to the pivot pin, and sits in a recess in the pivot pin to keep it in place in case the pivot itself comes apart.

    I just went out to the garage to look at my RO's, and it looks like I may have been mistaken. I might have been remembering the grub screw in the Formula Oro.

    Get a 3mm allen key and push it into the axle/barrel. You won't see them but they have some very small flats machined into the axle/barrel that will mate with the allen key and stop the axle/barrel turning.
