How do you remove old Shimano brake levers?
You can leave the housing (black thing that goes into the adjuster) alone. Once you have removed the cable from the lever, and pull the lever all the way, down in the bottom you will see a bolt, loosen it just enough so that you can slide the lever off the end of the bars.
How do you remove Shimano 200gs brake levers?
Re: Old school Shimano brake lever removal
The Shimano 200GS is held to the bar with a hidden screw like old ten-speed brake levers. Remove the cable. Squeeze the brake lever. Look for the head of a screw or bolt in the gap exposed by the open lever/perch.
