Broken lever...

3 posts in this topic

I broke my Works Connection clutch lever yesterday. I've got bark busters and EE plastic guards and I still snapped it. I went down in a really muddy berm and the plastic guard bent under the bark buster and put enough pressure against the end of the lever to snap it off flush with the perch. I'm just glad I didn't break that perch. Does anybody have a good source for works connection levers?

If you change your plastic bark busters to the aluminum wrap around type you won't have to go through this again. The Yamaha Pro bend guards with Tripple clamp mount have withstood the test of time and numerous crashes without a bent bar or damaged levers. There are a couple of other manufacturers out there as well. Plastic protectors are ok for small branches, but suck for everything else, especially a hard fall....

I've got aluminum guards (Bark Busters) to fend off the big trees with the plastic add-on brush guards from Enduro Engineering to keep the sharp little sticks from pokin' me in tha fingers. I had the same setup with Cycra guards on my xr and they seemed to be a bit stiffer plastic as they never bent into my controls like that. Maybe I'll get some of those again...
