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 25Nm - shift lever bolt ( ** M8 range from 20Nm-30Nm** )

(NO TORQUE WRENCH - do not over tighten when re-installing)

now buy a hammerhead shift lever from CJ

If your going to dispense advice on repairs, make sure its correct........

HH bolt on the shift lever (Adventure) M6 Loctite 243 + 10 Nm

There is a big difference between 10 and 25 Nm on a 6mm bolt, as in it will break at 25Nm....

My dad's a TV repair man, he has an awsome set of tools. We can fix that!
