The lever looks bad, there shouldn't be any play in the adjustment area like that..

Depending on which threads are bad you might not be able to. If its the barrel adjuster, you can just get a new one. If the threads in the lever body are bad, you would be best off just getting a new lever.

In the video, it appeared that the barrel adjuster was moving in and out of the lever. This would lead me to believe that something wasn't fitting right. So regardless if they made it work or not, it is not working correctly, and will continue to put slack in your brake cable.

As for where to get one, that should be a freebee at you lbs. Most have them laying around, or a broken lever they can take one off of.

Ok this is front brakes how to video. A lot of advice is relevant to back brakes.

Definately
1. Lube your inner cable with tri-flo
2. When you cut your cable use the smallest allen key to bore out the hole
3. Use brand new parts to ensure a smooth setup.

For the barrel adjuster just wrap electrical tape around it till it just barely fits in the lever and thread it in the lever.U will have a temporary fix.It will last for awhile.As for the lever wobble slide a washer on top and bottom in between the lever and the clamp.Kinda like a shim.

jesus kid.

It's really not hard. THINK THINK THINK. If you think about how a brake works then they are so easy. figured out how to dial my gyro in within 10 minutes of having it on.
