I've looked through the book several times and all I can find is one chapter tells me to remove the body panel and to look in another chapter then I go to that chapter and it says to remove the handle and look in the previous chapter. I would just like the nuts and bolts. I have most everything apart EXCEPT that side panel which is still being held by the reverse handle. Thanks.

If I had know grankids were this much fun, I would have had them FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!

On the handle if you have a chrome cover on it you will need to take it off. You take it off by pulling up on it toward the front of the bike. After you pull it off or if yours does not have the chrome on it then you just pull on the rubber part toward the rear of the bike. Do not pull the rubber all the way off. Under the rubber you will see a hex socket bolt. I am not sure of the size but it is metric and big. Loosen the bolt and the handle should come right off. When replacing be sure to put the pin in the correct spot before tightening the bolt back.

ROLL TIDE ROLL !!!

On mine I slide the rubber cover towards the front of the bike, just enough to get to the Allen bolt.
