Need your input: My front brake lever snapped off at the base after I braked hard yesterday in Winthrop. I had dropped the bike on a slow speed turn in early April this year on its right side, I think this may be why the lever broke. Since April if have put 8200 km on the bike and it has been serviced twice by my dealer and the bike is still under warranty.
Does anybody know if I am responsible for the cost of the labor and new lever or will the warranty cover it? Also, if I am responsible for it, how much am I looking at? If I am responsible for it, does anybody have an R6 front brake lever kicking around that I could use?
Greenboy: I'm glad I got home safe too! The timing couldn't have been better, I had just about finished braking. The bike did swerve as it snapped but I managed to keep it upright. We all know the consequences could have been more serious... Winding road, raining hard, Saturday evening, new rider and in the states!! Thanks Darnell for taking it slow on the way back!
