Do you mean the OE levers are still too far away even on the nearest setting?
I tried stubby levers. Didnt like them as I could only get 2 fingers on each lever. For me, this lessened clutch control and braking ability as its a hefty bike to stop.

Yes the standard leavers with adjustment still seem a long stretch might get long ones any models to look at

Have a look here Alan. You can also enter "levers" in the search function and get lots of ideas.

Pretty sure that's what I have. 6 way adjustment. Although I use the longer version and my adjusters are fading. Works perfectly.

Yup. No issues for me. Others might disagree but they are probably made in the same factory as expensive aftermarket makes.

I can't actually use a short clutch lever though due to no flexor tendon in my little finger so it would get trapped.
