    Yes it does Same one for the similar age Deauville.

    Fitted today! I needed to replace mine anyway as the pivot hole had worn and there was excess freeplay/slop up/down and at the lever end. I would point out the replacement is about 10mm shorter, so your little finger (not that it gives any force) doesn't fit on the lever comfortably any more. And it works but doesn't have a bush as pictured, so will eventually wear out the same as the old one.

    I bought from this seller (the link will die soon but never mind, name is steveaelybryn)

    The brake lever is for '04, IDK if it fits earlier bikes!
    The '04 bike already has an adjustable clutch lever and mine's still in usable condition.

    Took my first ride this morning, man it makes a difference not to have freeplay before the brake activates, and given my little-girl hands, it's nicer to not have such a stretch too. Adjustment is from marginally nearer to marginally farther out compared to the original, although remember mine was worn out so might have been further away than normal.

    Hi

    I would think so as my mate has a strada and they are pretty much the same

    At the moment its the clutch lever that presents the problem to get still looking and hoping someone will find one

    Hi

    They look good but knowing Wunderlich they have not been made for them they have just bought in from else where if we could find the source I am sure they would be cheaper

    I just find it hard to part with nearly £60 for just the clutch lever
    it looks a good match to the one I have currently on the brake

    Had you tested this tip before passing it on, Wilbur, or just heard it somewhere?

    The brake works albeit with a slightly stubby lever, but the light is permanently on. The activating paddle is at such a distance from the micro switch that trying to make it work doesn't really seem likely, except maybe by packing it out chemical metal which in my experience doesn't tend to stay on long not to mention I don't have aany anyway.

    Reminds me the time someone said you could use a stack of 2p pieces to increase preload in an old divvy 600, but when I took the caps off I found they dropped straight through the springs. Always someone who guesses, on every forum.

    It looks like it might work with the Honda switch, which looks in pictures to be the same as the one used on various honda nissin master cylinders, if you would wire it in with spades. I even have a spare. And if I'd known I would need it I would have had it picked it up from my dad's in UK while the wife was there last week.

    Suppose I'll be putting the worn out straight lever back on. That was a waste of £15.

    When I had a 2004 2 Spark, I used one, but that was a few years ago. Are you sure you have one from the old CB500, and not the current model?
