I was flying down a logging road getting sideways around every corner until i took a corner a little too fast. Going about 35-40mph I lost it. The rear end dropped into the ditch and I go flying. I flew 15 or so feet and the rappy rolls 2 or 3 times and lands on the wheels... on top of me.

So, I haven't started pulling the bike apart yet, but i know for a fact i need new levers, new bars, new right headlight, new headlight trim, new headlight bracket, new front brake reservoir, and a parking brake block off kit. I'm looking at buying the Pro-taper SE raptor bend bars with a Rox Speed FX 2" riser.

How many of you use risers? should i even bother spending the 80.00 on it?

That would be awesome, how much do you want for it? I don't have much cash cause I'm trying to buy all the stuff that is actually necessary.

Let me dig it out and double check if I still have it all and you can just have it if you pay shipping. You need just the lever on the handle or the whole thing?

I would be willing to bet the piece of shit tin steering stem is bent or twisted as well. I build new ones out of chromoly a lot like the lonestar ones and they wont bend again. You can choose what length you want so that would eliminate the risers. PM me if you want one! they are 120 shipped.

Once I have the ability to lift any weight with my arm or put any weight on my leg I'll get out there and tear it all apart, then I'll let you know.

Hey man, I have what your looking for, I wont be able to get you a shipping quote/shipped till Friday though. I don't see it being very much though. I'll guestimate the entire package (lever, cable, and caliper piece) at around 4lbs though.

You might be able to fit it into one of those usps flat rate boxes. it think the small one is like 8 or so bucks.

hey man, dont worry about it. I decided I'm going to get a set of ASV levers, and relocate what is left of my parking brake to the frame next to the tank.
