Adjusting Front Brake Lever Position

I would like to rotate my front brake lever upwards (higher) on a 91 K100RS. Not obvious to me what needs to be loosened/removed on the handlebar assembly to do this, even after looking through Clymers. Don't want to force anything.

Would appreciate any help/guidance from someone who has done this. Thanks...

Be sure to use a good Phillips screwdriver and lots of pressure on the screw that holds the switches on. Those can get sticky and if you're not careful you can strip the head.

Loosen this to rotate the throttle perch:
