Replacement ABS Break Lever?

First low speed tip over broke the break lever end on my 2009 ABS. Think this lever is different than for those with standard brakes.

I've filed off the burrs and am riding with it for the time being.

Any cheap replacement break levers out there for ABS equipped Wees?

Got the turn signal too, but will go Lockhart Phillips replacements. They look cool and are cheap.

I broke about an inch and a half off my brake lever and had a friend weld it back, looks and feels fine.

I haven't looked at the part numbers, but I have owned both ABS and non-ABS Wees and don't recall there being any difference in the lever. I don't think there's any reason for them to be different -- all the magic happens elsewhere in the system.

"I am enthusiastic over humanity's extraordinary and sometimes very timely ingenuities. If you are in a shipwreck and all the boats are gone, a piano top buoyant enough to keep you afloat that comes along makes a fortuitous life preserver. But this is not to say that the best way to design a life preserver is in the form of a piano top.
I think we are clinging to a great many piano tops in accepting yesterday's fortuitous contrivings as constituting the only means for solving a given problem." - R. Buckminster Fuller

The part numbers are different:

From Partshark.com:

2-1 LEVER ASSY,BRAK (DL650A)
57300-10G20 1 $81.09 $62.28

2-2 LEVER ASSY, BRAKE (DL650)
57300-44G00 1 $81.09 $62.28

No idea what the difference might actually be, or if there really is a difference, or if it's only cosmetic. Seems odd that the pricing would be exactly the same.

Maybe you could find someone with a non-ABS Wee and compare levers. Or perhaps someone's already done this...?

2005 KLR685, Aztec Red - Turd II.2, the ReReTurdening

Buy some decent handguards/lever protectors.
