sram red release leaver bearings

Postby philip » Thu Aug 22, 2013 3:29 pm

The little lever on my front brake that widens it up has stopped working - when I try to move it the whole thing moves, I can hold part of it with one hand and turn the other part with the other but even that doesn't work very well. I opened up that part using an allen key, you can see the part I mean in this image:


When I opened it up one quite small bearing fell out, it looks like there's spaces for a few more but they were missing (disintegrated over time?).

I'm assuming that's what's stopping it working properly. Does anyone know where I can buy those? I'm not sure if they're a standard thing or if they're sram specific, I did a search but didn't come up with anything.

Take the one that fell out to the LBS and ask. Failing that, there's got to be an engineering supplies place fairly close to you...

Download the Sram Tech Doc PDF , for parts breakdown
then try Petra Cycles, you can either copy and paste Part ID number into the shop search
or send a pic of the broken Part with it opened up and what year the part was
