Easiest pull clutch lever?

I'm looking for a clutch lever that's easier to pull than the stocker. Between the distance and the amount of force needed to pull the stock lever it's wearing me out.

Can't fit anything longer in there, so I don't think you'll get an easier pull with a different lever. Is your cable partially seized? Mine is an easy pull.

I don't think it's seized. It has a smooth action just a firm pull. It's quite far from the bars too.

I'd start by using some Teflon lube down the cable from the clutch lever end. Also be sure to use a small amount of white lithium grease on the cylindrical end that sits in the lever itself, that's a very common bind point for the older-style cables.

Ducati changed out the clutch cables somewhere around 14/15 to use a plastic sleeve around the metal slug on the end of the cable to prevent seizing and subsequent cables breaking.

It's for the clutch switch. Let's the ecu know when the clutch is pulled.

My 13 clutch was getting pretty heavy, after I changed the clutch cable the pull became very light.

I replaced my stock levers with a pair of Adjustable Ducabike levers.
They work like a charm. This may help with the lever reach but you will have to adjust your clutch cable to set the disengage point to suit your riding style.
They cost a lot but I liked the look and the quality........

Check compatibility with your exact Brake type before you buy.

Does that mean I can only use a stock Ducati clutch perch due to the wiring?
