Typically one of the first things I do when I get a new motorcycle or bicycle is to adjust the positions of the brake and clutch levers to my liking. Normally looking for a fairly straight line through my wrist and fingers to have them comfortably resting on the levers. On the 2016 Ducati Multistrada I had no issue with the position of the front brake lever, but the clutch lever seemed a little bit high.
You can see in the first picture that the lever and hand guard/turn signal on the left handlebar is sitting much higher than the right.
There are four bolts on the handlebar clamp and the hand guard is screwed into the end of the handle bar.
After loosening all of the mounting bolts, the lever still would not rotate on the bar. With full removal of the clamp and lever from the bar, I found an alignment pin in the handlebar that would not let the lever rotate. Consensus seems to be that these pins are only to aid in the assembly line process and the clamp torqued to the proper settings does not require the pin in place.
I pulled the pin with a pair of vice grips. The green masking tape was to help align the lever horizontally on the bar back to the original offset from the grip.
It only took a slight forward rotation to get the lever to a comfortable angle for my wrist and the alignment between the left and right levers appears more similar now.
Not sure why the alignment pins would set the two levers at slightly different rotation.
One thing that I did not check until after my first ride with the adjusted lever was the clearance of the lever to the body work. When I was parking the bike at the office the next day, I noticed right away that I lucked out and that there was just enough clearance over the body work.
A simple adjustment and well worth the time to make sure that the bike controls fit well to you.
