The adjustable clutch lever from a GL1800 fits perfectly once you machine off one tiny tab. Can be done with a Dremel tool. My dealer was nice enough to use their bench grinder for about the 10 seconds it took to remove the tab. Could probably do it with a flat file, too.

At any rate, it's a perfect fit, comes in black, and makes a symmetrical match for the adjustable brake lever.

Made a difference for me. Not huge, but worth the $25 the dealer charged for the lever.

It seems that Goldwing folks love to swap out the OEM black clutch lever for chrome, and my dealer said they usually have a couple laying around they'd have given me for nothing, but I came at a dry spell.

Check with your friendly Honda dealer and see? A brand new one runs about $40.

Good luck.

- My back got a little out of whack and rounded/hunched feeling. Could be that I was tired, grumpy about traffic, and hol ergonomically even though I hated how stuffed-up my legs felt. This was never an issue before, so i'm sure I'll adjust back.
