Replacing Front Bake Lever

Is there much to it? besides taking out the bolt and bolting on the new one? seems pretty easy, just checking before i go at it.

make sure you grease the bolt, and dont overtighten the nut on the bottom. Also make sure you check your brake light after you change the lever too.

Actual grease would probably be best. That bolt is a pivot point so you want to make sure that there is as little friction as possible. Otherwise the lever might not return to the open position after you release it. That is also the reason why you dont want to overtighten the nut on the bottom.

Grease won't cut it. I had this same problem with the same lever I bought off Ebay. All you need to do is get like 120 grit sand paper and sand a bit off the upper surface that slides into the "retainer", for lack of better word. The bottom surfce was fine on mine but you may need to sand there as well. Rinse it off and grease it. You'll hear the clicking of the spring if you did it right.
