You have to buy a whole new lever. I broke the tip off my shifter and the only option was to replace the whole thing. Or... new rearsets which is what I went with as I broke it the third time I drug it through a turn.

If you were a bit more DIY, you could file off the end of it and drill a hole to mount a custom tip. That's probably the route I'd take if I ever broke it off.

yup - get a woodcraft folding tip and put it on. Half the job is already done.

Thats what I think I will do. I will check how the whole thing cost.
What you mean by "woodcraft folding" ?

I bent mine. so I cut it off. Found a similar size bolt, rubber cover fit over the bolt perfect.
I plan on replacing some day, cost is $125. for the part.

Best of luck.

This was bit less money, from Hammerhead. You have to file a flat on top of the old lever to fit it, but it works great and fits the style of the bike.

Thanks to your motivational post, I drilled mine out today.

Bike may have went down riding in sand :D. All I remember is it was fun and bike was still completely ride-able.

Anyway, it is two pieces, lever and peg. Peg is pressed-fit. Peg hole diameter after removing remaining peg is .38 inches (maybe closer to .385).

This is as far as I go. I don't want to take all the fun out of it.

Ideas: could spin a bunch of hex nuts on a bolt and have a hex peg.
Buy a peg tip from sato racing, hammerhead, or elsewhere.
