    Guide R and RS use same brake lever?

    I have the SRAM Guide R brakes and bent a lever blade during a crash. I see the "RS" blade replacement on eBay but not the "R". Does anyone know if the R and RS use the same lever blade? I don't care about the other internals in the kit... just need the actual lever. The Guides I have were made in 2014-2015 time frame. Thanks!!

    Judging by the pictures in this thread I think the levers are interchangeable as they both have the same bearing and the SwingLink mechanism does seem to be independent from the lever

    but I'd rather double check that by taking a look at Sram Tech Docs or calling up Sram directly

    Thanks for reply. I think they are the same. The parts manual product number is different but the part kit includes all internals which may be different but I don't care about the other internals being different. Apparently can't just order the blade as it doesn't have own part number....
