Bought a new billet style brake lever for my RK. Directions seemed simple and easy and only a couple of parts to change out that came with it. Finish taking off the fasteners to get the stock lever off, go to remove the lever,,and presto,,the pipes are in the way. Called up my HD dealer and yes they verified ,,you have to remove the exhaust to take off and put on the rear brake lever on a RK,, but not mentioned in the instructions for the part installment,.:bigsmiley19:,, well I' don't do to much on my own bike,,so I asked them how much they charged to install my new chrome billet brake lever ,,and the service writer says " oh about $100-$150". Now I'm double:bigsmiley19::bigsmiley19: mad. Only sells for about $140 . Guess I'll try and remove the pipes myself.
