Jack Fell Down And Broke His – Clutch Lever?

So having dropped Jack on Saturday and knowing I had broken his clutch lever and bent the gear shift lever, I ordered a replacement clutch lever on Monday. It arrived today!

Here’s the previous one looking somewhat mistreated.

That gear shift lever shouldn’t be curved either. I’ll fix this one another day!

Removing the lever was easy – slide the rubber cover off, remove the bolt holding it in, then loosen off the cable tensioning screw and locking nut.

Replaced already!

Pop the bolt back in, tighten up the tensioning screw and locknut again and my hand no longer slips off the end of the clutch lever!

I also have a nifty souvenir from my first solo road trip as a rider, in the form of a powder-coated metal keyhole-shaped trinket!

Or perhaps it’s a comma or apostrophe, depending on which angle I look at it from?

I like apostrophes – let’s go with that.
