replacement clutch lever

After riding since April on the V, I'd really like a shorter (2 or 3 finger) clutch lever. Do they make such a lever ? If so, any recommendations , pros/cons ?

Hi Cetzel,

Try finding out from Rizoma. http://www.rizoma.com. A bit pricey.

A cheap alternative and idea ( It's all up to you/ Please don't blame me if it goes FUBAR)

Cut the clutch lever to you liking.
Wrap heat shrink tubing (http://cableorganizer.com/heat-shrink/) around the lever. It comes in many colors.
Heat to fit and it would nice feel to the touch.

Best Regards.

Haha - great minds think alike. I'm seriously considering sawing mine off a little past the ball-end. Good call on the heat-shrink!

More choices beside the heat shrink tubing, Cetzel.
