That lever is designed to break in the other section so you just replace the longer lever and leave that part alone. We learned that the hard way when Tigre crashed and we had to put the brake lever over on the clutch side.
Save yourself a lot of trouble, not to mention avoiding mangling the screw for that pin, and just swap the lever ends. That's quite easy to do and it will look the same once you have it reinstalled on your bike.
Keep your shorts on Scott, I asked the guys at the shop and they showed me a small set screw that holds the pin in place. Back that off and it comes right out. NBD once you know the trick. Remember how long we futzed around with it when we were trying to get Steve Metz back on the road?
