How much does a front brake lever cost?

Dropped my strom for the first time last night . Coming out of the car wash bay. She was all nice and shiney, and i dropped her in a puddle. The bikes fine, small scratch on the bar end, but nothing else, i was going super slow.

The only thing that busted was the brake lever. Snapped right at the break-point. Anyone out there know how much a new one costs?

Erm, I don't know what year/size your strom is, but if it's an early 1000, the part number is 57300-06G00, cost is about $45.

Lockhart Philips probably makes a replacement lever. 240-1258 might work, cost is about $4.

I just replaced my clutch lever. I bought the OEM lever cost $37.00 plus tax. I also bought the break lever just in case. After I purcahsed the levers I found an after market break lever ( motoboss) for a Yamaha that would work for $19.00 + tax. The difference in break levers is that the OEM has the screw and nut and the lever is notched.



OEM Clutch




Notch in lever



My fix of broken clutch lever, it is shorter but should not break in a fall. I used the ball end of a ball strap, drilled hole in end of lever and used a metal screw.



Hope this is useful.
