All righty, a quick question. Is it possible to get an adjustable clutch lever set up for the V2K?

Reason being I find the stock unit is a tad too far away for ease of use around town and in traffic. Any suggestions? Cheers Ando

Hey Bro,
I had same problem, have not found adjustable lever yet, but for now I loosened and moved the clutch lever mount towards centre of handlebars about 10 or 15mm and then the lever is closer to the handlebars where you grab it. I also gave it a bit more freeplay on the cable which brings it a bit closer to bars as well.
Hope that makes sense, but it helped a lot.

Just use the lever adjustment or the center cable adjustment to shorten the clutch cable housing and give the clutch handle more free play. Some play in the clutch lever is needed for proper operation so make as much as you need, (IMPORTANT) as long as the clutch still fully disengages with the lever pulled in, and shim the lever in to where it's comfortable. I've used split washers and even crimp on lead split shot before. Looks like hell but works. Bob
