In addition to Geoff's kind and generous advice, there is a fourth option you might want to try. If you haven't already tried it, lossen the bolts holding the clutch lever to the bars and rotate it downwards a few degrees. This can make a remarkable difference to the strain on your wrists.
Also, if you can move the lever across on the bars, this will improve leverage and lighten the clutch action. Worked on my Triumph Sprint, which also has a heavy action by modern standards.

Here is an update.
I have moved the clutch lever down a tad which has helped a little, but the big improvement was one of the motocross devices from Ebay as suggested by Crosshairs.
Clutch now much lighter and Arthritis now kept at bay!!

Great result Dave, good to hear you've found a solution especially as it's a whole lot cheaper than changing your bike   :028:
