That was a good relaxed ride. JB. Let me get your lever back to you. Mine is working well. Also, you should check the clutch mount/housing to see if the recess that the lever fits into was stretched open. That might explain the feeling that it is not solid. Good luck finding a good paint shop. You'll likely get what you pay for. Man...it really hurt seeing your bike on its side. A good paint guy can match the paint. I used to have a guy that could match pearl white paint (the three step paint process) perfectly. It can be done. If you replace the fairings, yo are probably looking at 800 - 1000 bucks. Give me a call tomorrow and we can get the lever back to you.
