Dropped my bike and this little sucker split right in half. Anyone have a spare lying around I could buy off them for a reasonable price?


Mod: if this post is in the wrong place, please move it to the right place, as I could not find a "need parts" section like most SV forums have...

Rear Brake Lever?

Reasonable Price?

:roflmao:

Sorry, allow me to regain my composure.

First off, Welcome to the Forum!

You would think those things were made out of Gold! I, like many here, looked for a couple months for a used lever to no avail. I bought new and you can't get away with much less than about $70 for the fookin' thing. I was lucky 'cuz when I received the new one, I finally attempted to straighten my pretzled original while it was still on the bike. IT WORKED even though I figured it would snap. Now, I have a sealed, unopened spare in my parts box.

Saw one for $30 on ebay new & shipped - I couldn't find one with (fake) carbon fiber. Matched the pipe soo.... I got the shifter lever CF (same price) but no brake. Good quality.

oh my sack - you have those first two statements totally right! This is unbelievable... kindof makes me want to contract a machine shop to make me some aftermarket ones and sell them for some major mulah... it has to be possible...
jballa, thanks for the scout - Iv been watching ebay like a hawk and the best iv seen was 70$ for the entire rear system... but all I need is the lever, so Im screwed I guess...
Going to start visiting random junkyards now :(
Anyone have better ideas, please holler - I will check here regularly :)

Don't forget to account for Oneida's typical BOHICA Shipping Costs (that's Bend Over Here It Comes Again). I just checked their site, $54 + over $15 to ship!! (maybe a little cheaper for the OP).

Oneida is no different than those ebaY ass-holes that offer a reasonable price for an item and then charge you 3 times what it really costs to ship something.

I'd never do business with those pricks for that reason alone.
