    The piston must be galled (corrosion is likely culprit) and came out with the old clutch lever. You need to remove little rod (should just pull out) and the brass pivot from the old lever. Then clean them and put them back in the new lever. Fit the rod back into clutch M/C assembly before you put the new lever on and grease the bras pivot and rod going in. I like to use green grease.

    Yeah I finally got it put but I didn't clean it or grease it so I'll go get some, do I need to just wipe everything off or actually put it in water and clean it.

    I agree with Scuba. Use some kind of degreaser to make sure you get all the old grease off the old parts. It's probably more like glue at this point.

    Duuuuh, what the heck is "Green Grease"?
    Other than grease that is green, that is.
