I'm not sure if anyone ever posted this but I did a quick search, and everyone seem to have successfully done it.

I've change the brake lever with no problem!

But when i got to the clutch side, I ran into this problem! I loosened the botl so I have more free play to pivot the lever around! But this one bolt (In the picture), I'm not sure how to get it out. I removed the nut that holds it down on the bottom, but how the heck do I twist this bolt out when it's completely flat? Thanks for any help, and I know it gotta be another stupid question~

Not the red arrow pointing! The round bolt on the bottom! I just stole this picture on google LOL

Right where this guy as at 0:52 in the video! That bolt doesnt just slide out for me, it feels like it's threaded in~ I'm not sure how to get it out now~ ANy advice would be awesome!

The collar for the cable has a slot on the side for the clutch cable to slide out of, screw the follower in to give slack in the cable and slide it forward so the end can be dropped out of the lever.

Replace the lever, put cable back in place, back out cable follower to adjust slack and screw retaining nut wheel down against clutch lever mount to lock in position.

I understand that~ Thank you! It's that round flat bolt I can't get out~ I'm wondering if it's screwed in or is it just stuck there?
