Step 1: Tools and Parts
New Brake Lever Mount
Needle Nose Pliers
Phillips and Reg Screwdriver
Adjustable wrench or 10mm wrench
*Apparently a circa 2002 cell phone as well... (old photos..)
Step 2: Reverse
When you replace the brake lever mount or the mirror mount on your velocifero you unfortunately have to pull out the brake cable, brake light sensor, brake lever and brake cable.
First step is to unscrew the mirror, use an adjustable wrench and don't forget it is reverse threaded, so righty loosie lefty tighty...
Step 3: Unscrew the Screws
Next unscrew the two phillips screws on the front of the mount, located above and below the lever. Pull the mount apart. Now pull the cable off of the accelerator. You can unscrew the accelerator cable from the mount with a phillips.
Step 4: More Loosening
Unscrew the brake lever using a 10mm wrench or your adjustable and a flat blade screw driver. Be careful when you pull the handle out not to drop the spring located in the bottom of the lever.
Now here you have to loosen the wing nut on the front brake. Pull the cable out of the mount. Unscrew the Brake light sensor.
Step 5: Put It Back Together
Now we have the whole thing apart.
Okay, time to put the sucker back together. Reverse the whole thing:
Screw the light sensor in, screw the accelerator back in, now hook the cable back onto the grip. Slip the two halves of the mount together and screw them together.
Slip the cable of the brake through the slots in the mount, screw the lever back down. Screw on your mirror and your done.
