I have wide palms, short fingers, so the reach to the levers at closest adjustment is a stretch, so I bought a set of these to try, 6 position adjustment:

The brake lever was simple and made a big difference. The clutch remains to be seen, as the part that operates the master cylinder seems to have adjustment and a set screw or pin. Anyone know for sure?

Also, for my 5'7" height, I find the front of the bike at 70-80mph indicated deflects enough air so I don't feel buffeted.

Yep, sure does George. These parts need to be removed from the old clutch lever and installed in the new one. First remove the grub screw, then the plunger. Install the plunger in the new lever, then the grub screw. You may have to fiddle with a few adjustments and them

I have a similar set of these and find them quite good, especially inside my handguards, where the originals would catch.

You may need to apply heat to remove the grub screw. They use some sort of thread locker on it.

I didn't have to apply any heat to mine. You will need a small allen wrench to get the grub screw or set screw out.

I saw this on another forum in case you just want to buy the plunger new or bugger up the oem one.

Bugger up. My specialty, being a totally shade tree mechanic. I mean boat shade. That link's photo really helped seeing what I'm dealing with. I'll see if I have an allen that small.It looked allen, but thought it could also be a pressed pin.Thanks...

Not BSW, nor BSF, nor SAE, nor UNF, nor UNEF, nor UNC, nor cycle, nor BSP, nor BA, nor any of them others. Just simple old-school metric...

Simple. I like old school simple. Without foreign cars, the US would be all SAE, miles, yards, feet, and inches. Kilometer? That's north of the border!! Cool

Must be hard, being in one of only 2 countries in the world that is unwilling to go metric! I guess holding out against the odds is a right too.

Tell me about it, and that's not the only thing. But I'm told this an apolitical group!! Sad

And just to keep things interesting most of our cars and trucks have a combination of both sae and metric.

Holding out against the odds is how we became the United States of America.
