Hi All. Just thought i'd post up a pic of my knackered clutch lever. It's aftermarket, didn't realise that when i got the bike - it looks standard / genuine at first glance. However, now it's off you can see the underside is clean or unmarked by manufacturer. It should have 'NISSIN' or similar engraved/emblazoned across it. My clutch began getting 'graunchy', I thought "I must fix that this weekend". Thinking i'd just take the lever off, hold the cable up, create a funnel and let some 3 in 1 penetrate and lube. It was still working. So i begin to strip the lever.................. and it falls into my hand: That is purely metal fatigue from an inferior product. Now the lever is off you can feel the weight of it - or lack of. The bike's 2011 so the lever cant be that old. Plus i rarely use the clutch. This didn't cause me too much of a problem, have to admit I wasn't overly concerned at the time being a clutch lever - and i knew a bit of maintenance was coming. BUT, what if it had been my front brake? Now that IS a worry.
