I've been having trouble with the factory clutch lever.
I'll start by saying I don't have big hands.
They're not freakishly small like in the Burger King commercials, but when I extend my fingers to pull in the clutch, my middle finger touches the lever right at the first joint and the tip of my index finger just makes it over the edge of the lever.
This is causing hand fatigue.
So, I've decided I need some adjustable aftermarket levers, and have been shopping around.
I think I've decided on the ASV F5 series.
I like that they are infinitely adjustable, and can be dialed in exactly where you want them.
My inexperiance with anything other than stock length OEM levers has kind of stalled my purchase.
I like the look of the short levers, but I'm concerned about loss of leverage.
My gut feeling is that my index, middle, and third finger are doing most all of the work, and that they'd most likely all fit on a short lever, but I'm not sure.
Can someone with the shorties clear this up for me?
Does the smoother operation of good aftermarket levers make up for the loss in leverage?
Is being able to adjust the lever close enough for me to actually wrap three fingers around it enough to make up for the leverage loss of a shortie?
I know some riders choose a short brake lever, and a long clutch lever, but I don't want this.
They'll be either both short, or both long when I decide and order.
Oh, and I'll get this out of the way in advance....
