Just replaced front brake cable for first time. Went well in that the scooter stops when I pull the lever. Although I am wondering about adjustment...I am assuming there should be no free play in the brake lever (unlike the clutch lever)? And should I be able to pull the lever right to the handlebar grip? Or does all of this depend on what you find most comfortable?

Should be tight with a little play. Dont want the brakes to lock up after 2mm of movement. Lever should not go all the way to the grip for full lock
