Doesn't anyone have a local shop anymore, I guess soon enough we mightn't.

It turns out that the local dealer sold me a chrome lever with the p/n 53178-KVO-305. I plead a senior moment because my lever is black. But then again my bike was in the shop for a month due to the dreaded regulator/rectifier failure. It might be better to buy your parts on line and find an independent repair shop to fix your bike when you can't do it yourself. This Honda dealer doesn't service bikes over 10 years old and their parts people don't seem to be very friendly to people like us with the older bikes. IMO.

I have found that a stock clutch lever from an 82 Kawasaki GPZ 550 fits.

I'm adding my name to the list of members who purchased a bikemaster clutch lever and got a non-fitting part, according to Canada's Motorcycle, part # 1729-B fits, but no way Hose-eh! There's no where for the cable to go. Guess I should have checked here first!
