We had some intense wind while I was out of town a couple of days ago and it knocked my bike over. I was pretty fortunate, but the rear brake lever was bent. I'm just looking to replace what was on there. Anyone got one? PM me if you do and how much you are asking.

Thanks.

This would be the perfect time to upgrade!? Let me know if you dont come up with one, I may have mine in a box out in the garage.

Get a piece of pipe and put it in a vise straighten it a bit to get by until you get the new one. You could try putting a rag around it to keep from scratching it incase it comes out pretty good. If it doesnt come out good should be able to get you by until you get a replacement or upgrade it

I would be able to straighten the foot peg/brake arm if I had a vise, but unfortunately I am in the middle of a move and probably won't have a viable workspace even if I had one.

try putting it on a hard flat surface (concrete driveway?) wrap in rags so it doesn't scratch and do some poundin with a hammer to flatten it back the direction you want it. Don't pound hard enough to crack the concrete. Just tap it to where you need it. Sounds pretty redneckish but I've straightend some things pretty darn well this way. I don't have a vise either

ahh if you were down here i have plenty of vises, not just beer and women either. My main thing if it wasnt bad would be getting it close to perfect, if its bad, get it to a rideable point to get by for a bit then replace it with either OEM or an aftermarket. If its kinda bad i would just do what Ry recommends with a hammer on some concrete, unless you have patience to wait until you can fix it better or properly. I grew up Trail riding dirtbikes so am used to rednecking things to get by for a bit then fixing later (back then it was on a hurricane day or when trails were flooded too bad).

I've ordered the part from the local stealer at a wallet-lightening $100 with tax. I have to take my bike in for some servicing and the breather hose recall so they said they would put it on for free. In the interim I found some pipe and a vise at a friends place and I'm going to give it a go this weekend. Wish me luck!

Hopefully all will work out well with the vice this weekend. Stinks that it was 100 bucks, i think that is why some of us were thinking aftermarket, some of the stuff is cheaper or slightly more but looks a bit cooler
