Well I called Abu Garcia about adding a clicker & they said they can send me all the parts I need to install a clicker for $35 shipped. *I've looked up the part #'s online & they seem to be about the same price. *But looking at a 6500 sideplate w/ a clicker and looking at my 4600 sideplate...the only difference is a slot cut out for the button of the clicker on the edge of the sideplate..looks like its dremmel time. I imagine this is what they probably do at a reel repair shop. *Without having to buy the sideplate your looking at about $10-12 in parts....Later!!
