I've replaced the brake lever on my SV and it was just a matter of unscrewing it, sliding it off, replacing, bolting back, and done. Don't know about clutch side.

I've replaced both on my sv, like trip said, just unscrew and replace.
Remember to lube the bolt that it piviots on, otherwise it may bind at an inopportune time.

Yeah lube that clutch cable alot! LIke remove the lever, lube it, start the brake lever job, lube it some more, finish the brake lever, lube it more, finish the clutch. You can't lube it too much.

If you can figure how to get it off, it's easy to get back on.
