Question handlebar brackets bolt covers

the previous owner seems to have moved the handlebars way forward from the stock position and i'd like to move them back to their stock position.
the bolts for the brackets have some kind of black covers over them.
do these little covers pop off somehow? are they going to get busted getting them off or can i reuse them?

also, the brake lever is not on the same level as the clutch lever... the clutch is fairly horizontal, but the brake is lower than horizontal.. but if i rotate the brake back to be horizontal, then the mirrors will not match... is this normal? or is the brake lever normally a farther reach? if you can understand me without a picture..

The little black plastic covers will pop out with a kinfe blade or possibly with a good finger nail... They have a center stem that goes into the allen head socket and are reusable... The mirrors should be able to pretty much line up by loosening and retightening the bottom of the stem lock nut after turning the crooked stem to where you want the mirror... At least the looky part of the mirror can be positioned right...
If you can understand my instructions you are doing better than me...lol...

Silicone the caps when you put them back in. Otherwise you can get puddles in there if you're out in the rain.
