I recently bought a lovely set of 8 speed ergo levers which I believe to be Chorus.

I suspect that they have been serviced at some point and the covers that go over the rachets at the rear of each lever have become lost. The part I am referring to is the one that slides into two locaing grooves that are just below the level of the band that attaches the levers to the bars.

I can't see anything similar online as a spare so I am hoping that someone may have some here, have a defunct set of levers, or know where I can get some.

I have already dropped Nigel at Campyoldy a note.

Many thanks in advance.

The ones with metal bodies do not have the plastic insert only the Carbon ones.
Mercian, Sidcup cycles or JD Whiskers spring to mind or the Velotech-cycling

Thanks for the feedback. My levers have 'carbon' written on them on a panel at the front which is above the lever itself. I would love to believe that my ones don't need the cover but I suspect that they do - there is alsoa tab on the rubber hoods that would locate into the missing part.
