I decided to personalise my controls a little more to my liking, but I have a problem with the front brake lever. I want to adjust my lever a little up so I can grip I leaning back, but the reservoir on top of the lever hits the throttle tube. It sucks, because my friend has a 2014 KX85 and his throttle cable is on the rider side rather than pointing away like on mine... is it possible to adjust just the lever, or do I have to buy a new throttle?

Can you rotate the throttle back?

I dont know, but would that affect where the throttle is? Like the “off” point is moved lower by moving it?

Rotate the throttle. As long as youre not rotating it 45 degrees back it wont make a difference. If it does id bet adjusting cable slack would fix it.

No, your grip will be a little far back, so might want to get a new pair. But rotating the throttle housing back (toward the rider) will allow more clearance for the brake reservoir.

Also make sure to have the throttle tube a couple millimeters away from the end of the handlebar to keep the throttle from sticking.
