Years ago, l snapped the end off a lever in an off and kept it at that length ..... better operation and more room in the handguard space, only downside being the lack of ball end, hence grip tape and that suggestion to you.

Cos it looks ard.

Extra grip I’m guessing as your still pulling the same pull, just one finger.

Tape as in grip tape? To give grip in place of where the ball end was ...... and to wear your glove fingers out ;-)

Hoping for a little extra grip and less slip from the tape, as it breaks down it tends to get nice and tacky 👍 but may try some grip tape aswell and compare results, I've seen a roll on ebay for a couple of quid. I reckon heat shrink might be a good alternative aswell.

Handlebar tape from a pedal bike.

I’m very tempted to cut my levers down. Brake and clutch moved in as far as they’ll go, fat fingers mean the lever hits the other fingers when pulled - particularly the clutch. Looked for 1 finger levers but not much choice and seemed stupid expensive for what they are.
