The clutch lever assembly on my 78 CB400TII is damaged; the lever it’s self is fine, but the Metal in the lower hinge is broken, so the lever moves up and down. I bought generic lever assemblies, since piston in master brake cylinder was also bad, which works great in right side, but as you will know, on left side, the clutch lever is built into the left side controls. What I was wondering, is if anyone has attempted to cut the lever assembly off the controls and then use a separate clutch lever assembly? I am worried that if I cut the metal between controls and clutch lever, the controls section may get damaged (cavity in metal between both sides?). Thoughts?
