    Hi All

    I need to get a replacement clutch lever today but there does not appear to be any locally for my 2003 breva 750.

    Does anyone know of any generic/aftermarket levers that would are suitable? Or as a long shot does anyone have any available in Sydney Aus today or at the latest tomorrow?

    All responses appreciated am happy to confirm suitability with various stores/suppliers myself if anyone can point me in the right direction.

    Thanks in advance.

    Robbie

    Yes there is a Ducati one that fits.

    I got one from Tom Newells here in BNE, might be worth a call. If he has one in stock Express post to a P.O. box will get it to you before 9am tomorrow.

    thanks for the promt reply, you are a life saver.

    spoke to Tom and explained my problem (absolute top bloke) he helped me out by letting me know there was also a KTM/Husq one available.

    As there is a KTM dealer 15mins from me I'm able to pick one up there today. (for later reference/ anyone searching threads its HUSQ 610 KTM LC4620 SX2500 CLUTCH LEVER)

    Hopefully this is the turning point to my day - I dropped my bike this morning after having a new front tyre fitted. Most was spared but the gear lever got bent and the clutch lever snapped. In that condition it was not going to pass rego and its due tomorrow. As my only real means of transport I was not keen on waiting for parts before reregistering.

    Managed to sort out the gear lever with some gentle prying and the 1 inch stub that is left of the clutch made for a fun ride today. But this afternoon I should be able to fit the new one fitted and get rego done

    There were a couple on ebay last week. One in Oregon and one was in Neb.

    Just out of interest, how much was your clutch lever? I ordered a brake lever from a US supplier and it was pretty expensive. I should have investigated the alternatives since plenty of bikes have Brembo brakes.

    And what's the Ducati alternative? Ducati's are fairly common, so finding a used one shouldn't be hard, if we know the model.

    Lever was $15, bear in mind I don't think they are original parts. The supplier is M.C.S their code LCHU2, I think they stock a range of stuff for various bikes so your local shop (regardless of what bikes they stock) should be able to order from them. I also saw that MG cycle had a clutch lever for around $20US. Wouldn't imagine a brake lever being much more but who knows.

    @Joe - I am not sure of the Ducati equivalent, Tom seemed to believe that it was only a KTM one and although I mentioned Mike.C had purchased a Ducati one from he didn't seem to pay it too much attention. To be honest I was just pleased to know that another lever would be able to suit. Maybe Mike.C would be able to shed more light.

    BTW rego check done, just got to pay at the RTA. :D

    Robbie, MG Cycle has levers for $15? I took a look and you're right, although they're out of stock right now. At that price there's no need to go to other suppliers. Might as well get the real thing. Thanks.

    I'll remember Guzzimundi replaced a clutch lever on his Breva with an adjustable lever from a 1200 Sport. Won't help you now, but for the records.

    Why, BTW, the hurry? Was the old one suffering from a sudden wear? :whistle:

    How? The 750 Breva has a cable operated clutch and the 1200 Sport is hydraulic.
