Question about 1988 Honda VT 800
Remove the nut on the underside of the lever where it pivots on the handle bar while holding a screwdriver to the top slotted bolt to prevent it from turning(Some are not slotted and you'll need a second wrench). When the bottom nut is almost completely off tap it a couple times to force the bolt upward . Remove the nut and then pull the bolt while holding onto the lever to prevent it from dropping out. The pushrod may fall out so watch for it! Remove the pushrod bush from the old lever. When assembling grease the bush and pivot bolt. Insert the bush into the new lever. Fit the pushrod to the bush (keep it in place with some grease in the receptacle in the bush). Refit the lever to the housing by lining up and inserting the pushrod first. Finally line up the lever hole with the housing hole and refit the bolt, tighten the nut and you're done.
