    How to take out the 750 SEI brake lever?

    Hi sirs,

    I am renewing the Brembo front brakes from my 750 SEI with the excellent factory kit wich I totally recommend because the quality improvement of the original old parts. That is specially relevant with the brake pistons which are much lighter and rust free, solving the common stuck problems with those brakes.

    Has been a pleasure to do that work until arriving to the master cilinder pump. When I tried to disassemble the brake lever to reach the master cylinder trying to undo the screw/shaft of the lever (see the pic), it was totally locked, and the notch has broken easy...

    Has it any hidden pin or so, to free it?. Anybody knows how to take that out? .

    Thanks.

    Carles.

    It should just unscrew anti-clockwise Carles. Probably never been removed in years so you may have to play some heat on it to try and free it off.
    Make another slot in the end with a hacksaw/dremel or try mole-grips if you are going to replace it as they will chew up the thread.

    Suspected what you mention, Laurence but was so stuck that I had my doubts ... I put loosening lubricant some days ago, so will make a new slot and aply some heat as you recommend. Thanks for your help, sir.
