I need to change my brake lever.

Has anyone done this? Any issues when I remove the lever? Will any springs come flying off? Do I have to bleed the hydralic fluid?

I replaced my bent one a few weeks ago (bike fell over). Extremely easy with just a flat screwdriver (if I recall). Nothing will fall out.

As I remember, There is a small nut on the bottom that you need to pay attention to when you remove the lever.

Thanks for your responses.

I am slowly replacing necessary parts on the swing.

Thats weird- my nut seems to be attached, or maybe it is just glued on.

Until you're standing over the drain in your driveway - then it will mysteriously drop out! Razz

If I remeber correctly, the goldwing adjustable brake lever is compatable. Got to research where I saw that. Be back soon...

Hi Paul,

I did the research on the brake levers off the gold wings. Only the right lever would work with the Silverwing. On the Goldwing the left is a clutch lever so that side did not work at all.

You are right on the money Dennis, OEM are under $20 bucks each.

If you do lose the nut it is a 6mm cap nut 90201-415-000 about $2.90. Smile

Thanks for all your help.

I installed the left one today, piece of cake.

Also, I wanted to share something with all of you. I found buying online from www.powersportsplus.com has the best prices. Shipping is cheap. They match any price you can find. And best of all, if you know the secret code, you get another 15% off.
