    KS Lev Integra remote swap HELP!!!!

    So my DB release 2 came with a KS Lev Integra dropper which I absolutely love. I donít love the remote for it, and ended up buying a replacement. I purchased the KS southpaw remote which is a shifter style remote.

    I CANNOT find solid instructions on how to replace the standard remote with the southpaw remote, and coming from the school of if it ainít broke, donít fix it.... Iím terrified of breaking something if I start disassembling without guidance.

    does anyone know where I can get a tutorial for this?
    Thanks

    If you go into Google and type "KS Lev Southpaw Installation" the first things to pop up are installation vidoes...

    Assuming you are mechanically inclined enough that you can bolt the remote to your handlebars, this is the only thing you need to know. JK I'm sure you are.

    An FYI, the cable guide that KS uses to set the barrel leaves 18mm of cable, so just measure up 18mm from the cable housing and install the barrel. Other than that it's not rocket science.

    If you still not feeling it, I recommend taking it to a shop to assist.

    Good luck (I have faith in you).

    I suggest downloading the owner's manual from the KS site in the support section (KS | Support). You have to scroll down below the spec sheets section. Just follow the instructions for the regular remote except you'll be substituting the Southpaw remote, but the manual gives you the correct length to cut he cable relative to the housing.
