Broken Lever

So I dropped my bike before the SMR last week and now I have a shorty clutch lever.

I dont have a grinder but I think I need one so the edge doesnt tear up my gloves.

Does anybody in the SW area or Galleria have a grinder I can use to dull the edges on my clutch lever?

OR buy a 180 grit Sanding sponge from any auto store. They are $3.00-$4.00 and will get the job done.

You'll need a file and also a hacksaw so you can make them match.

You might want to invest in a Dremel, they are very handy.
If you have the broken part. It may be possible to re-attach it.
Drill a small hole in both pieces such that a single stiff wire (Like from an outdoor grill) can be insert into both pieces. Root canal style, apply JB Weld to all mating surfaces and when cured grind smooth with light grinder (Dremel)

I have been sucessful with this, it takes some patience.
