Agh...broken clutch lever

Dropped the bike in a parking lot today (backing onto a speed bump and lost my balance), only real damage is the broken clutch lever. How much and how easy to replace??

Also noticed the indent on the primary case where the gear lever dug into it but it still changes gear ok. I had read of some problems from a bent shaft in these situations. I guess I was lucky. Watch out when you're backing!

Well, when I dropped mine because I didn't put the stand down, (feel better about the speed bump drop now?) I just hit up ebay and got a replacement for about $25 or so. I had to replace my shifter as well, and that was another $25ish.

Edit: They're really easy to replace. It took me about 15 minutes, and only that long because I didn't notice the little bushing that needed to be moved from my old lever to the new one.

Kito,

I've got a very good one left from my parts post in the classified section. PM me and I'll send a pic. These are too easy to replace, btw.

07 Bonne Black with ARK, AI removed, K&N Pods, Nology Coil and wires, D&D full exhaust, 135 mains/42 pilots, 1 shim @ sea level. Biltwell trackers, Hagon 2810's & progressive fork springs. all blacked out.

I did the same thing, dropped mine and put a longer bolt in the gear shift place as the picture above shows.

In fact I liked how much easier my foot could operate the shift lever with the longer bolt that I put the original rubber piece over the longer bolt with some small washers to locate it and have it in place ever since.
