So the problem that I have is that the flat headed bolt attaching the lever to the bracket is not letting me completely remove the nut. I guess I will try using a die to clean the threads. I have placed my thumb and anything else I could figure to hold that damn bolt down while I try to remove the nut but nothing is working. It acts like a nylon bushing hold in place nut that is staying in place. I also seem to be running into the problem of having Kuryakan chrome bolt on accessories having really bad thread issues. I have had to return two itmes due to really poorly manufactured threaded bolt holes. Anyone else running into this? Chinese made junk I am afraid. The levers I bought now also have this same issue. I am using tap and die clean ups on all of this stuff. Really irritating.
By the way thanks for the heads up on the switch. I saw that one coming form a mile away and steared clear of that problem.
OH OH OH< I JUST REMEMBERED how to do what your up against!!! tighten it all back up, and use a new nut or a die (first forwards, than flip it backwards) to clean/chase the exposed threads. THEN the nut will come off easy with just thumb pressure on the flat headed bolt to hold it. (use oil, wd or marvel while clean/cutting) OR you could do the old school method and file them
