I found my bike on its side in a parking lot. The tip-over bent the brake lever among other things. Curious to see what would happen, I put the pivot end of the bent lever in a vice, slipped some galvanized pipe over the ball end and very slowly was able to bend it straight again. It didn't snap off, as I thought it would. I may have been very lucky but it did work for me.
Same thing happened to me on the stock lever. Kind of pricey to replace. Lockhart Phillips makes a really good direct replacement for Triumph. You can also use any nissan brake lever off a Kawi ZX, Yamaha YZF or Suzuki GS500/SV650. Those are dirt cheap. Cluth lever is a different story
