    tektro 4.1 levers with nitto bullhorns

    Hey all i just got a set of nitto bullhorns and also have a set of the tektro 4.1 levers from chucks bikes . Now my question is should these fit together? The plug fits into the bar end but it's too loose and i can't seem to figure out how to adjust it. Any help would be geat. Im sure that theres some simple solution for this that im just blanking on. Thanks again. Cheers.

    There is an expander bolt you can access underneath a rubber/silicone cap on the end of the brake lever. Pop the cap, turn the screw until the lever doesn't shift around anymore, and you're good.

    Wasn't the threaded screw end showing at the end of the plug a vague clue? And the mounting instructions?

    the levers came from chucks in a cardboard box packed with newspaper and no mounting instructions. i was just just covering my bases, i am glad to see you care enough though to come post and be an ass after the issue was dealt with. I hate the idea of you having to take the time to open this thread, see how incometent i was and then i had to waste your time by making you post to tell me how incometent was too. You just must feel used. The true spirit of community... people helping people. Thanks to those who did help though.
