I don't have a lift, a garage, or any extra tools.

to remove the lever you will need
8mm socket
extension bar
socket ratchet

bench vice

torque wrench
loctite 242 (blue) DO NOT USE THE RED

you will need at least a bench vice (with soft jaws or a rag rapped around the lever so the vice will not leave jaw marks in the alloy lever) & hammer (rubber mallet/soft hammer would be best) to tap it back.

have a friend close buy with these ? next best M/C shop.

use loctite & torque wrench to 10Nm - shift lever bolt.
(NO TORQUE WRENCH - do not over tighten when re-installing)

now buy a hammerhead shift lever from CJ
