Replacement brake lever for vfr400 nc24

  1. Hi all,

    Managed to drop my bike in the garage today, most embarrassing moment of my life...

    The brake lever then snapped off near the middle. I wouldn't be too concerned except for the track day i have next week and the line stating "levers which are deemed difficult to operate must be repaired" in the requirements for motorcycles page.

    I doubt i will have the time to import the official part from the UK (it's a grey import, nothing for it in AUS), so can i just use any old brake lever from another bike that i can make fit? Will it make a huge difference? Or are they largely interchangeable?

    http://www.davidsilverspares.co.uk/VFR400-NC24-(JAPANESE)/part_22751/ that is the official part, if it helps.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  2. I'm not 100% sure, but I think you can fit a CBR250RR lever in. Take the old lever out and take it to a motorcycle wrecker or even Honda to see if they can match it. Pretty sure they are similar to CBR250RR levers.

  3. Just for reference:

    Phongus was correct; CBR250RR levers fit quite nicely, and they also fit a lot of other hondas of that era. I ordered one for $22.95 from Motorcycle Spares Warehouse, and had it express posted to mine (ordered monday night, received wednesday morning). Took me 1 minute to install.

    So this is here for the people who know how to use the search function :D
