Front Brake Lever Replacement Tips

I am replacing a broken front brake lever at the right handlebar end assembly on my 2000 K1200 LTC.

If anyone has done this, I will appreciate your tips. Upon first glance at the diagrams and the bike, it's not clear to me how to remove the bearing screw that seems to hold it in place.

Thanks very much!

I did it in a parking lot in Arizona in 2000, but for the life of me, can't remember how. The new lever was decidedly better than the vice grips I'd been using. The point is, it can't be that hard if I did it in a parking lot.

Which parking lot?


We need to hear from this guy more often!!!

Never changed a clutch or brake lever on a BMW. With the Kawasaki's, you have to be careful not to smash the micro-switches...but other than that, pretty straight-forward. I'm sure the BMW's are no more difficult. Just take your time. And good luck finding the right parking lot.
