When you changed out the levers, Did you have to bleed the systems or is it completely separate from the fluid line altogether? I'm looking at doing this but i just ASSUMED ( i know...) that you would have to drain and fill the clutch and brake fluids.

no bleeding nessecary. Just undue the boltholding the levers, pull out the stock one(for the clutch side make sure u take out the insert to put in ur new lever) and do the reverse for the install. Easy as pie

yep no dealing with fluid or bleeding. just removing a pivot and replacing lever.

Did the lever push rod stay attached to the old lever?
Did it get pushed in past the rubber boot?
If you can't find it, then here's the part number for the replacement.

It's item number 1 in the parts illustration. Not cheap for what it is.

And as a side note, while you have the lever off, put some lube on that pivot for the lever.
Will make it work better and hold down wear on the bushing.
