To remove the clutch cable push rod arm thingy I would adjust the clutch cable all the way in on the lever and then remove the nut at the base of the head that holds the clutch cable. Once the nut is removed pull the cable out of the holder and disconnect it from the arm. You could then lay the bike over and remove the clutch cover or drain your oil first and then remove the clutch cover.

Remove the pressure plate, thrust washer and dont lose the little steel ball

And slide the rod out a little to allow the clutch arm to release(I have the whole clutch basket out already in the photo but you dont have to)

You can then remove the bolt and pull the arm straight up.

Here's the schematic for you.

Yup, you need to open up the clutch and pull the inner push rod. It fits into a notch in the bottom of the release arm, so with the rod in place, the arm can't be lifted out.
