I had a clutch handle break last week and I discovered the silly things are made of white metal. I foolishly bought a replacement that was the same as the original but I just was nervous about it breaking again. So, today I stopped by the local cycle and ATV shop to see what they had. For just over $20 after tax I walked out with a Perch and Lever made out of aluminum that feel quite solid. I got a long lever so it works very easily. The thing doesn't lock but I can live without that in return for the reliability. Something to consider!
