    Anybody have any feedback on the adjustable clutch and brake levers available from Witchdoctors? Pricey for sure but look like they may make the difference for my spouse who is, shall we say, vertically challenged with small hands. Watched the installation video and was impressed with the modification but it is not quite clear just how much difference the levers make. Sure would like to hear from someone who got these. Did they make a difference in reach? Do they work well? Any reasonable alternatives besides these? Curious minds want to know before pumping $330 bucks into a couple of levers. Thanks a lot for any input.

    What type of bike do you have? My CCT allows the levers to be slightly adjusted for smaller hands. Read the manual on how to do it.

    You mean the adjustable levers they get from us as we are the exclusive importer?

    LSL Adjustable Brake & Clutch Lever Set

    These are the only adjustable levers on the market currently. From adjusted all the way out ... to adjusted all the way in, there is an inch to play with.

    The only adjustable OEM lever is the front brake. The clutch is still a stretch for small hands - like Trump has. :badgrin:

    On my HD I had some ergonomic handles. They make them for metrics as well. Google Ergonomic Motorcycle levers, EBAY also has some. Just make sure you find one that fits. Which is nice when you get them from site vendors. They are nice to have.

    Okay, an inch to play with. Is the widest setting like the oem lever or is the center setting more like oem? That means a half inch either way? We're leaning towards getting a set but just a bit more info would help. Thanks.

    Thanks.

    Certainly never intended to ruffle feathers, if I did. All I did was google adjustable levers and Witchdoctors was the site that came up. Sorry

    Don't sweat the small stuff here. A time will come when you'll berate someone as well!

    Hmmm. That is unfortunate. I sure appreciate the response though. I am not sure that you have the inside line for these guys but... What would it take for them to consider it? Is it that they feel there is not enough of a market to create some? I know I am not alone in this desire to get a better lever. The OEM lever kinda sucks to be honest. But there is no alternative. Oh well. I'll keep checking from time to time. Thanks again, Sir.

    It looks like a little engineering would get an adjustable lever for a hydraulic clutch. The clutch uses a simple plunger to press on the master cylinder just like the brake does so an adjustable plunger position should be pretty darned easy to design. Probably would take nothing more than a simple cam to raise and lower the plunger part relative to the lever handle part. I think you will find that is more or less how they already do the adjustable brake lever that was OEM on my 2013 Vision.
    That won't give you any "mechanical advantage" but it would let you position the clutch closer to the hand grip.
