    Brake lever on a Hawk with F2 front end

    Hi all ...

    I recently bought a Hawk (well, a pair .... one working and a parts bike). My girlfriend was riding it around the block this weekend and dropped it. She's fine but the brake lever snapped in half when it hit the ground.

    I'm hoping I can just replace the brake lever, fluid reservoir etc with the unit from the parts bike. But the working bike has an F2 front end, so it has dual front disc brakes instead of a single disk. The banjo bolt is obviously different than that on the parts bike, but I am wondering if I can otherwise just unscrew the brake fluid reservoir from the parts bike and use it, or if I'll have to shop around for parts from an F2. Hoping to find out in advance if I'm going to end up with a big mess on my hands and no working parts from either bike.

    Thanks!! Excited to have found this forum!

    Welcome to the forum! The levers are interchangeable.

      Thanks! Can you recommend any decent lever guards?

        No, I just keep spare levers. 6 picked up some Chinese knock off guards from eBay for the racebike.

          We use these. They have taken two hits so far, one low-side one high-side and still holding well.
