So I had a fall off stopped dismount which bent my clutch lever. Still useful but has a big curve.

Is a clutch lever replaceable?
Costs guess?
Easy to install or need clutch bleeding and all?

I'm off on a 2 week two up ride in June so i thought I'd check to see if I could fix it.

Is this the Mike who brought me home an IOM sticker a few years back? Anyway, no bleeding involved. 30 min job. Go over to IBMW and do a search on Clutch levers. Some have reported clutch distance engagement issues with even nice shortie replacements like Pazzo levers. If you are happy with stock lever then just replace it. There is a wee spring in there behind the plunger arm. Be ready to capture it or you will be searching all,over the garage and cursing bloody hell.
Beware of fleabay chinese made ones!
