CLUTCH LEVER Repair ... ?

#1 Unread post by ptmxtwo »

[no search results found]

i dropped my 2013 Yamaha and bent the end of the clutch lever....
It looks as if the lever is made of aluminum. If i try to bend it back, or heat it and bend it back, will it break?
What are my options, including replacement.
thank you

Sometimes. And sometimes mine will bend back without breaking without
heat. I've had to buy replacements a couple of times too.

Its happened more than I like to own up to.

Save yourself the disappointment and go buy a lever. A new lever. :lol:

Well, this is an old post but I recently have a similar problem with the brake lever.
I have a video showing how to make it in case someone else have the same problem.
