I bought a used 2016 450R and immediately bought spare brake and clutch lever as I do some trail riding as well.
Anyway, bent the brake lever in Moab and instead of using my spare, I just bought another to install and leave my spare. Well, the new lever isn't correct and I check my spare and it is incorrect as well. I looked up a '14 and a '18 model ( just in case I had a different year master cylinder ) and they use the same lever... so now I don't know what I have on there.
I have a Nissen master cylinder ( don't know if that is factory or not ) but the new levers are too thick to fit in the perch and have this extra rotating piece in there too.
Anyway, this is what I have.

Did the guy you bought it from have an older CR ot CRF? If he did I bet he swapped the front brake assemblies, or at least the master cylinders. Can you contact the previous owner and ask him? It looks like the same lever that is on my ‘04 CR250R, but no guarantees.

Not able to contact the seller, its been a couple years.
I would just go to my local shop and start trying levers but given the virus scare, probably not going to do that.
