Is replacing the clutch lever an easy process? Do you recommend I buy the service manual to do this, or is it pretty much bolt and go? I dropped the bike this weekend and snapped the stock lever in half.
It's easy as it gets. Remove the bolt connecting the clutch lever to the handlebar carefully, making sure nothing rolls away. Then you can pull the lever toward the front of the bike and remove the clutch cable.
Reverse the above to install the new clutch lever.
Should take you no more than five minutes. I dropped my bike on the left side and snapped the clutch lever, too.
I did the same and an OEM replacement was more expensive then having someone weld the lever back together (assuming you have the other half). Go to a welding shop they should know someone that does small job's like that.
