Will this brake handle work on an 86?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Kawas...Q5fAccessories

I know it says 91-06, but I'm wondering it the only difference is the style. If there's no difference in the fitting of it, then I'm going to hop on it. If this does not work does anyone know of another lever that would work (that's easier to find under $15-$20)?

He doesn't have any on ebay now, but there's been a guy selling the brake lever you want for like $7.96 + shipping. Maybe he'll pop on one there soon.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

The `85 to `90 vn750 with a rectangular master cyl for the front brake, have a lever with a bend of about 15* down to line up with the grips.

The `91 models on with a round mc, have a flat lever.

Here are pics in a thread from last week, discussing this same topic. The first and third pics show a late model flat lever on the early rectangular mc.
