Hey!

A couple months ago I crashed against a tree and my brake right lever bent. Now I can still brake but I cannot fully brake with 1 finger, which is not really the best. My brakes are Sram G2R (4 piston)/

Now I've been trying to buy the lever but it's sold out everywhere, I could only find whole brake sets for the G2R. So I wanted to know if I can only change the lever and put let's say another Sram lever insted (that uses the same brake fluid) while keeping my G2R caliper? If so, does anyone know if I could put Sram Code or Guide brakes? I realized they're also 4 piston brakes and the levers are in stock.

I hope doing this is possible!

You can certainly do this with Shimano brakes. I'm not sure about SRAM but you'd need to check that they use the same lever / hose connections. A quick search on the SRAM site should give you the manuals for each brakeset. In there I'd expect to find details of the connections for each lever.
