Don't know if you are aware of the remedy for 'clutch ache' - that bruised feeling you get when riding short distances and repeatedly gear changing.
I got so fed up of my hand aching that I was seriously going to sell the bike.
Thats when I made a few internet enquiries and found out that a replacement adjustable clutch lever from a VFR800 will fit the ST1100 perfectly and provide a much easier clutch movement. I know alot of bikers will already be aware of this but there are also a good few I've passed this on to who didn't know.

Or you could heat the stock lever with a torch and bend it inward to your liking as many people have done. The levers can be bent into a semi circle as done by racers.
