Hello from Mass
Just registered. I'm in Boston suburbs now after a move from Connecticut. Definitely more Versys here. I saw quite a few bike so far, compared to NONE ever in 2 years in southeastern CT.
Anyway, I need help with a tech issue.
An elderly women went through a red light yesterday and cut me off as I was proceeded from my side. Just had time to brake and steered right, and ended up dropping my bike. Not too much damage: my Givi case is scratched, and the front brake lever snapped.
I was trying to figure out if the lever is something I can easily change myself. Sounds pretty stupid at first, but when you take a close look, I am not sure about the brake hose and how complicated this may be. I am a DIY when it comes to woodworking, but not so much with motorcycle: this is my first bike. I just don't want to end up having brake fluid spilling all over and parts falling off as I dismantle the assembly.
Has anybody ever done that?
Plus, the clutch lever part number is listed on the Kawa website in the exploded part section, but for some obscure reason, the brake lever is not. And they are not symmetrical. It's not even there on the handlebar diagram. Anyone knows where I could get this info? (I will give a call to the local dealer, but I thought I'd ask here first).
I may repost the message in the appropriate section after the 2 messages rule is compliant and I have full access, but there it is.
