Clutch lever change

Hi folks,

I dropped my 2012 650 on my driveway and broke the clutch lever. I got a stock replacement but for my life I cant figure out how to remove the nut that's holding it in place below. The gap is too narrow for any socket of mine to get it out. Any tips?

Thanks,
Chetan

Chetan - I replaced the levers in all three of my V650s w/ "shorty" ones, but I just went out to look at the '15 (w/ my SERVICE MANUAL in hand...) and I can't see how I did it.

Sorry.

Not very helpful, but to let you know you're not in this alone I have the same problem, I have bought replacement levers, but the space around the nut is just too tight. I suppose we need to find some sockets with thin walls, cause none of the sockets I have can fit in there either.

"OK, I'll answer my own question in the hopes it helps someone else. First, a 10mm thinwall socket is very handy here, since my standard automotive socket set and standard 10mm open and closed end wrench didn't have enough clearance."

This was in the reply i posted . Please open the link.
