You need a 8(?)mm Allen. Take off the two big bolts holding on the right rearset. You should have enough slack to flip it over. Take off the springs, use a pair of external snap ring pliers to remove the snap ring holding the lever on. Snip the cotter pin holding the master and the lever together an slip it off, put it back together and remember to re adjust your rear brake light. Apply loctite to the bolts holding your rearset to the frame.

The adjustment is on the sensor behind the rearset. Can't really explain it. It's pretty simple.
