Rizoma Brake Lever

Was flexing the 919's power out in the twisties yesterday and pulled up to a stopsign, went for the front and rear brakes.... only no rear brake. apparently the lever vibrated loose and fell off sometime while I romping around.

Basically just need the rear brake lever off a Rizoma rearset (they may be universal I think).

least it wasnt the other way around!!!

how is the rear lever held on? typically theres the main pivot point and the master cylinder pivot where its held on... surprised both failed in the short amount of time it took to notice.

It's just a single screw that secures it to the pivot point.



I don't know how it happened so fast, I guess it was loose already, didn't feel loose though. I tried back tracking, but it was useless, I only use my rear brake when coming to stops and when emergency braking.

intresting, so the actual lever doesnt hook to the master cylinder? i see the spline so id assume its there for adjustability, if so that makes sense and that sucks cus thats probably a pretty pricey part!

Yeah, they run about $80-95, the real problem is trying to find someone with spares though. The parts take forever to come over from Italy. At any rate, this won't happen again, going to locktite every last bolt that even has the remote possibility of coming loose in the future.
