Can you tell me where I can purchase a new brake lever cutoff wire for the MT7? All I've been able to find online is the entire lever which comes with it, but I don't need the entire lever, just the wire. Also, reminder for a black decal set. I also wanted to give you an update on the oil leaking from the Kindernay. I rode yesterday and then stored the bike with my drain plug pointing up. The bike still leaked, so the drain plug isn't the issue. I got on their website and found this in their FAQ, "All oil lubricated internal gear hubs will sweat a small amount of oil through the oil seals due to variations in temperature and resulting pressure differences. In order to minimize oil loss, it is a good idea to store the bike as upright as possible, as this will prevent oil from collecting over one of the seals. If the bike is transported laying on its side, return it to an upright position as soon as possible, and be aware that some oil might drip from the hub when it is laying on its side." I used their contact form to ask how much is expected to leak if the bike is stored upright which mine is. I've never stored it on it's side so I'm not sure what's normal and what isn't. The amount seems like much more than seepage to me, but I'll let you know what I hear from them.
