Shimano XTR brake lever replacement

I managed to bend the RH brake lever (XTR 2011) last night. The levers are quite short and stubby and as a result its quite difficult to reach it now.

I'm going to try straighten it first, but in a worst case scenario....

 

Anyone know if the lever can be purchased and changed without to much hoo ha?

 

 

Have not had a chance to check on line if the levers are available as spare parts or if they can be replaced....

 

 

Looking at the lever assembly I suspect Shimano wont be selling any of the parts required separately.....

heat it up with boiling water before you bend it, that shimano aluminium stuff has a tendency to snap.

 

Fixed it for you :P

 

But yes your right it could crack / break if not done with some care
