Ok, I bought some Pazzo levers and installed the brake side with no problem, but the clutch side requires that I remove the bushing and actuation pin from the stock lever and use them in the new lever. The pin does not want to unthread from the bushing. I gave up trying to remove it and reinstalled the original lever.
Do you know a trick to unthreading the pin? Perhaps they used adhesive or strong Locktite on the threads.
Where can I order a new bushing and pin in case I wind up breaking the parts?
Happy 4th!

IIRC, isn't there a teeny weeny grub screw holding it on?

Humm, I better take a closer look! Off to a BBQ now, look later.
Cheers!

Yes, there is a miniscule grub screw in the bottom of the barrel that locks the actuator. They also nowadays seem to use Loctite as well.

Loosen the grub screw, this may require heat, and then wind out the plunger, which may require more heat. It's probably worth running a tap and die over/through the threads before reassembly into the new lever. If you use Loctite use a tiny bit of 243, not that red shit!

OK Got it out and into the new Pazzo lever! Thanks. I gouged up the little pin, but it seems ok. I will be looking for a new pin. The bike runs like a champ and I'm enjoying my new risers and more relaxed, upright riding position.

Good luck with a new pin - as far as I am aware, it only comes as part of the Brembo lever. I screwed mine (irreparably) and had to turn down a new pin on the lathe. Everything else was re-usable.

Canyon Carver & Mark,

OK I was wrong. $35 bucks is a steal, especially when you consider a new Brembo clutch lever is way over $200 here in Oz

Cool. Are you certain it will fit the newer GRiSO/Brembo? 2012 year as well as what they say it fits?
Thanks.

GRiSO levers have not changed since the model was introduced in 2006.

That little grub screw is a bastard!! Heat the screw? I'll give it a go!

Make sure you have the right key - this one is metric - avoid ball ends - they screw your screw. Grind it off (the ball end) if you have to.

Just spoke to them today to confirm my order. Seems they make these themselves, so it's not made by Brembo. That explains why it's no black like my stick part. They assured me it will fit though.
I have good allen keys for working on guitars and such.

I too have a good 1.5mm. It seats in the grub screw, but I can't get enough torque to loosen. If that thing is glued too, well, crap.

I will try more heat (just using a lighter) and see where it gets me.

Might I suggest a hair drier or heat gun rather than open flame?

I use a butane micro torch to bust mine loose.  Certainly a BIC/cigarette lighter will do no harm, it might take a little while to loosen the loctite though. If your hair dryer can break up loctite, I wouldn't let anyone use it to dry their hair...

Once I realized there was an Allen set screw, I had no problem breaking it loose, with a long (3") handled wrench. No heat required.

No joy here. Did not heat enough and stripped it.

So AF1 gets my $35 and ordered up my Rizoma LED indicators too.

Sorry to hear that Birch. I guess I was just lucky breaking it free with no heat. Remember though I gouged mine up trying to unscrew it before I found out about the dinky set screw, so that might have loosend the lock-tight bond. I'm getting the new AF1 pin as a backup.

Then it would be called a heat gun Son.  Laughing

Happy 4th!

I have not seen any aftermarket levers for the GRiSO, what bike were the levers intended for? Or even better, do you have a part number?

Hi Ron. There a few companies making adjustable replacement stylish levers. I bought Pazzo that were $150. in Go to amazon.com or e-bay and do a search for GRiSO clutch levers. There are levers that range in price from $50. to $200.+
NOTE; you will have to use a bushing and actuating pin from your old Brembo levers. There is a discussion on our ghetto forum about removal of the bushing/pin.
