Who makes a nice adjustable clutch lever?

For years I have been just dealing with the cluch lever.
Rode my bike for the first time in a while last night due to a hand injury.
I can't take it any more! I need more adjustability towards the bars
Would appreciate feed back from those who have used aftermarket ones.
Got pics?
Thanks

I have used this one https://www.fpracingusa.com/
and liked it. Easier pull, and also adjustable on the fly.

I eventually switched to a short one http://www.midwestme.com/ which works great for 1 finger operation but sometimes i miss the adjustability.

You can't go wrong with either one.

+1 on fp levers. I have the short ones. Not so short but I use one finger with them. It's been a few years. Still top notch

Options...

Recently went to a Rekluse auto clutch and won't ever have to worry about levers again. It can feather better than I'll ever be able to. Highly recommended.

Has anyone tried fitting super duke levers, brake or clutch on to a ADV?

I would really like to get a folding pair, basically something that had some give if I drop the bike.

These guys seems to have a bunch of differant options but for the SD.

I've got the midwest mountain engineering one on my 950 and it has been amazing. that's what I'd go with, and it's taken some pretty nasty hits out in Moab without breaking. Just keep the bar mounts a little loose so that the clutch will rotate instead of snapping. The 200 will be getting a shorty lever soon too.

I just ordered a Midwest ME clutch lever as well. If I like it, I might go for a brake lever to match it.

I emailed Midwest ME and ordered their clutch lever. They told me they don't have a brake lever for the 950SuperEnduro. Anybody have any info?

I just got my MME clutch lever today. It is very easy to pull compared to the stock lever. Three weeks ago I farked up my left hand while riding. I get some titanium bits installed to hold my bones back together on Tuesday, but I can still pull the clutch lever without too much pain right now. Seems like a great product to me and worth the roughly $70 I spent to get it shipped here. Hopefully I get out and about to use it in a couple weeks after I start physical therapy.
