adjusting handlebars

Hey folks. just picked up my Wee 2 days ago.

I'd like to roll the handle bars back.

I would assume that this is done by loosening the u-clamps on top of the upper tripple clamp. But, I have no idea how to get a socket down in there. The hole is little bigger than the bolt itself

How is that bolt loosened?

My searches turned up no results...

Thanks!

You don't need to use a socket. Use one of the hex wrenches from your tool kit. Loosen the bolts enough to adjust the bars and retighten.

Just incase your still confused with what Colin said ... There is four allen head bolts on the handlebar brace. You cant see the heads of the bolts because they have "chrome" plastic covers in them. Take a small screw driver, pry up the covers to reveal them, loosen and move bars. DONT LOOSEN ANYTHING BUT THESE TO MOVE THE HANDLEBARS

I love ridin' my "FREAK"!:twisted:
