need repair my brembo MC,help!

that's a sad story,i made a red flag on yesterday's race.when the roll stoped,i found the brembo's flip up lever stick in my left boot and my right leg is under my 10r,so i cant get any move at all.

i dont know how a crash can happen like this strange way,but the brembo flip up lever will not flip up indeed!and if the damn lever is not hang on my left boot,i will apart from my bike maybe...

i have not check my bike yet,i just be sent to hospital immediately when the crash happen(i am lucky,only one bone broken of my right shoulder),but i was told my bike have many broken parts , i want to fix my bike step by step,so,my first question is how to repair the brembo mc,because my buddy told me the front brake is still work,just something wrong with that pin showed in the picture,and he said i would fix it by get that brembo crash repair kits maybe,but i have no idea how to get the MC apart and assemble.can anyone show me the construct of the MC and how to install that brembo crash repair kits?

any input will be great appreciate!

The Brembo flip up lever doesn't really flip up unless you crash. This is kinda phony representation of a flip up lever. They are nothing like CRG's flip up levers. You can buy a CRG replacement lever for the Brembo MC and then you have a working flip up.

To install the crash kit you have to first remove the knurled adjuster wheel.

To do this you have to drive out a very small diameter roll pin. I use a very small finsihing nail. Then remove the e-clip and the pivot pin will drop out. You can then rotate the lever and it will spin off the part you are going to replace in the crash repair kit.

You can then install the crash repair kit.

The key to all of this is to drive out that tiny roll pin FIRST and don't drop it or lose it, thats easy to do.

Why Brembo advertises their flip up lever as a flip up lever is beyond me as it is only designed to flip up when you crash.

I have the CRG option on mine and love it.

hi jimmy,sorry for my poor english.
i see my bike today,the brembo MC still works,and without the brake fluid leakage problem at all. the push rod still in great shape also:no broken and no bent, but it just seems apart from the inside of MC.

i think i dont need that brembo crash repair kits maybe,but i really dont know how to connect the push rod inside,do i need to pull that rubber hat off first?if yes, how to do it?I only know how to take the lever totally off from the MC now.

Sorry to hear about your wreck, I would be more concerned about the whole bike than just a lever though

The CRG lever you have has a remote adjustment on it, right? Also isnt that a $500 lever? I have a Bremebo M/C (with folding lever) and was told that the CRG lever is the only aftermarket lever available for the Brembo M/C. I am thinking about using a Brembo shorty lever.

Hardracing.com sells the cast MC w/ flip-up lever for $309. Some places less I think. Just kinda rare.
