    X9 triggers outside of brake clamp?

    I'm having a hard time reaching the shift levers on my new X9 trigger set when my brake clamps are spaced where I like them to be. (I like my brakes to be clamped about 1 inch away from the grips). Maybe I have ridiculously short thumbs or something.

    Anyway, is it possible to put the shifters outside (towards the grip) of the brake lever? Has anyone done this?

    Does anyone know what I'm talking about? You move your brake lever an inch or so inside so your hands rest on the middle of your grips. But, then your triggers seem like their a mile away. Am I crazy?

    you can mount them anywhere you want. Mine are outside the brake levers. Don't think I've ever seen anyone put them on the inside. Did your bike come that way? If so then I think the mechanic was drunk that day.
