Hi,
I have small-ish hands (I'm a female 5'3" tall) and I was wondering is there a way to move the clutch lever and break lever closer to the hand grips so my fingers don't have to stretch so far? Or are the aftermarket levers I can buy that would be closer to the hand grips?

Thanks

My missus is 4' 11" with small hands. I had to make adjustments to both levers for her. I did try buying the adjustable levers but the range of adjustments wasnt suitable. Basically could go bigger not smaller.

So I made up a small spacer shaped out of vinyl for the clutch. Sits between the lever and housing so the lever cannot return to the far away position. Needed very careful setting of cable tension to find a point where it released fully but didn't drag.

Front brake I just drilled and tapped a small 4mm hole at the lever pivot and put a screw in it. The further it screws in, the closer the lever comes to bars.

Total cost for both modifications was about 35p. 😁

It's done a couple of years like that now so I guess is suitable.
