Lever Change

Does the levers come off as easy on the 750 as it is in the 900 in this vid?

Haven't watched the vid, but, yep, the levers are about as straightforward as they come!

When I bought my bike The brake lever had the ball broken off from a drop. I bought the same thing you did and it took probably 3 minutes to put it on, no worries

Let me know how you like them. I thought about those. I still might get them in a few months. I also picked up the 12 led spinner brake light. That should get a few peoples attention.

I needed a cheap lever because I have to get my bike inspected, and I not sure if they would pass is with the end of the brake lever missing.

BE CAREFULL!! when replacing the clutch lever not to snap off the plunger for the safety switch, recommend removing the switch before you change levers.

They passed me, he just mentioned that I should get it replaced asap. This is in MA.

As for the clutch lever, I didn't replace that one so I would listen to Lance, haha.
