Broken Clutch Lever

Can someone please help me, unfortunately, I dropped my bike and I've broken part of the clutch lever (black).
My model is a 2002 K1200RS, and I'm trying to source a replacement lever only preferably a used one in good condition, but if not, a new one.
If someone can direct me to an online site to purchase this, I would greatly appreciate it.
Also, is this lever available on other BMW models? Thanks, Cheers.

Hey Jak, greetings from across the ditch. Best option is Beemer Bone Yard in the States.

I have just checked their site and they have no listings for K12RS's but I think there is a problem with the link so contact them directly for more info.
MAX BMW is a great place to buy and import new stuff. They have a lever at USD 121.00, AUD 129.00

Yes the same clutch lever fits many BMW models (R1150R , R1150GS , R1200RT , K1200RS...).

The OEM orignal BMW is VERY expensive even in North-America ($US 121).

A friend on the other K bikes forum recently bought a replacement made by EMGO that is sold on EBAY for approx $US 20. He said the fitment was good after installation. The EMGO part number is 30-69663. The BMW part number is "32 72 7 657 147"

Hi Sailor, I checked out the link at EMGO with the part no. 30-69663, the result I get is for Classic British bikes. Any possibility that their is another part no?
Greatly appreciate your help. Regards.

The internet link to EBAY that I gave you is correct and should bring you directly there:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/1996-2008-zz...cb1b6a&vxp=mtr

BUT... you are correct that I made a typing error in the text as the EMGO part no is 30-69662. Sorry about that ;-)

Thanks Sailor. Not having much luck, the ebay link is fine, but unfortunately they don't deliver to Australia.
I've found another source from Amazon (EMGO LEVER C BMW 32727657147 30-69662), they too don't delivery to Australia. So I'm going through Borderlinx in Dayton OH, and they'll reforward it to Australia (for a fee of course).
This is still cheaper than I can buy it here. Again, thanks for all your help. Cheers.

I expected that getting it to Australia would not be easy.... but knowing that your import prices are very high for genuine BMW parts, there has to be someone in Europe or the USA that will ship it to you for a fee.

I just checked with Canada-Post rate from my place (Montreal) to Australia and the cheapest (by air) was approx $US 20 - it would be much higher if the package had been larger.

Thanks Sailor. In a nutshell we get robbed in Australia for BMW parts (notwithstanding freight).
Ah well, we have to take it or leave it. Cheers.

One important detail I forgot to mention:
When installing the new lever, if the inside part is not broken (the part attaching into the clutch master-cylinder) do NOT bother to install the full lever - just install the outside part - there is an allen bolt under the lever.

On the other hand, if your lever broke inside, then you will have to be careful to check and maybe adjust the clutch micro-switch - this is critical if your K1200RS is equipped with the electronic cruise-control option. With the "optional" factory electronic cruise-control, the K12000 has a double micro-switch inside the master of the clutch - this is visible when you remove the pivot-bolt holding the lever.
