I don't have a lift, a garage, or any extra tools.
to remove the lever you will need
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
now buy a hammerhead shift lever from CJ
