If it is just the plastic handle broken, behind that is the cable that opens the hood. Just grab the cable with a pair of pliers and pull. You can probably just replace the inside handle and not have to run a new cable.

Remove the bolt in the lever perch. For a clutch lever, loosen the cable enough to remove the broken lever and replace the new one. Adjust the clutch cable back and replace the bolt in perch.
