I'm betting you'll need to have the lever, clutch rod, swivel joint, and I'm assuming there'll be a plastic mounting block too - to do it up right.
On my 22,000 series handlebars swap (922002 handlebars onto a 922008 frame), I tried using the '002 pull style right hander and it didn't work even though the handlebars and frame are darn near exactly the same. I had to swap over the '008 lever assemblies complete. The '002 bars did not have the pre-drilled block mounting holes on the left side handlebar, nor was there an "indentation" on the left where the lever mounting block screws passed through from the top.
I was able to make it work, but I had to use the mounting block holes as guides to drill new holes to mount the lever block.
I'm betting it can be done, but if you have a complete machine the way you want it to operate as a guide, it'd make knowing what needs to be done a lot easier. I know the cramping feel...my '002 does it to me also. I could probably lighten up on my friction disc adjustment to relax the tension I set it up for (for maximum disc grip to the drive plate) - my fear is I may have some slippage as a result.
That's "fine tuning" of The Badger I have scheduled for this week.
