Aftermarket Front Brake Lever

Well, I just broke another front brake lever. Oddly enough, the tangs that push the pushrod in broke (as they did last time), and despite 10 minutes digging in the dirt I couldn't find the pushrod.... again!

And just to rub the salt in, the world decided I should brake my arm in this latest off. Yay!!

Anyway, does anyone have a lead on aftermarket levers with the pushrod? Paying $54, plus delivery, for the Husaberg stuff is sending me broke!

It's an '05 450FE.

Haha Hey mate, I was reading your post and thought to myself that sounded way to familiar! Geez didn't know you broke your arm that's a bummer. How's that fuse problem going?

Not too sure about your brake lever had a search on the net couldn't find anything, where about's do you order your parts from?

Re: Aftermarket Front Brake Lever

Yeah, broken radius. I'm in a cast for six weeks. I've broken so many bones over the years I'm kinda used to it now! Hahaha. It's a bit hard to pull bits off the bike and chase wires at the moment too.

Not sure how I managed to ride out of the forest. Can't even take the lid off a bottle of milk at the moment!!

I get my parts from Flinders. It's not their fault Husaberg charge like wounded bulls for bis of plastic.

That sucks, well wish you a speedy recovery! That forest ride was a very eventful one, It's my fault I started the rain of bad luck haha

Yeah it's hard to find parts for Husaberg's in Australia even with the newer model

Yes, we all blame you.

Parts are easy to find if you go to the local KTM dealer. But I don't like to support them.
