FWIW
Burgman 650 brake lever fit perfectly and and looks like a CNC from a Vstrom also would work.
Like the Burgman lever as it has nice lever adjustment



Thought I'd leave the post up for anyone else with a broken brake lever.

••••••••••••

We have limited access to parts in Canada since the CBF1000 was only here for a couple of years and never in the US.

The CNC parts are very confusing to buy online.
The Honda dealer wants an outrageous amount for OEM

Two questions.

What other Hondas share the same brake lever? ie CBF600 etc

Has anyone bought a third party lever set and installed successfully??

•••

also .....has anyone installed guards ala BarkBusters or Tusks - 100 KPH winds tipped me over and since the bike was just in for service the panniers were not on - which might have saved the lever. :(  :157:
Bike is rideable with 2 finger braking and of course Combined ABS helps.

Was pretty wild weather

Were you really out riding in that?

I'm in Kitchener and we had massive, massive wind problems here yesterday afternoon. My SO's office building was evacuated due to wind pressures that caused a ceiling to collapse.
Old enough to have seen it all, heard it all, done it all. Just can't remember it all.

I had to pick up the bike at the dealers in Milton around noon and since the ride home was eastbound on the 401 it was actually very nice.
Going crosswind down Winston Churchill was not bad.

I think the wind really picked up in the afternoon and I stupidly left the bike in the driveway instead of garaging ...- ended okay having the spare lever from the Burgman fit and my staff learned first hand how heavy motorcycles are.
Was tipped past 90 degrees as the panniers were off for the service.

Lesson learned about being wind cautious but really that was insane.

This is a useful site.

.....

1) https://www.bike-parts-honda.com/microfiches-recherche_piece-53170-MBR-J11.html

Note that the oem lever has a 'notch' at around half way along the length which is there as a weak point so that in event of impact to the end it will snap at that point leaving enough to be usable.

2) Yes, bought on eBay.
