adjustable clutch?

does anyone know of an adjustable clucth leverthat is the same as the adjustable brake lever? I'm looking for one that has the same turn and click wheel.I see many on the market but they have those little levers and not the wheel. Also gotta be in Matt black to match the brake lever

I have the same problem twozzie. Why Ducati would think your brake lever needed adjustment but your clutch does not is beyond me, my hands are the same size... So I struggle with both.

I had the same issue with my 2005 Multistrada. As a short term fix I've done the same as I did with the Multistrada. I've removed the lever and drilled a small hole in the body just short of the micro switch. I've then inserted a very small screw so the screw head pushes the lever closer to the bars by preventing it to return to the fully open position. I've then adjusted the cable to ensure the clutch is properly adjusted for the new position.

Why a bike that costs close to 11,000 on the road does not come with an adjustable clutch lever is beyond me. I have made several enquiries to companies providing aftermarket options but none yet have one for the Hyperstrada as it's so new.

If you find one please post to this thread as I'd love to know.

Thanks,

Alan

I fitted an adjustable one to my VFR 400 a few months ago, I think it might fit, but I won't be home for another two weeks to try.
Its one that folds as well as has full adjustment.

I thought they where quite good quality too, I bought them for track use on my 400

Adjustable clutch

They look great. Can you let me know if it fits when you get a chance to try.

Thanks, Alan

What's the point of them folding? Does it fold if you drop it or something?

I'll saw a really tricked out Monster with very similar levers. I personally like the deep bend towards the grip. I cannot understand why anyone would want the levers out as far as stock clutch sits.

They are supposed to fold rather than snap if you have an off, quite good on track days. I fitted them to my track bike and still take the original ones just incase i have an off and break one, I can replace if required so it doesn't ruin the day.
