I think all 1100 levers are like that unless you can find some dog leg levers that will work.

I'll put a tape to it just feels way unnatural and is quite a little strech just to get my finger tips on it. I'll get back.

Have a set of OEM 1500 levers (clutch/brake) if they will work.

Sounds like the wrong lever, my 83 had about the same distance to the grips.

I just went out and measured 1 I have handy and it is 5" from the tip of the clutch lever to the tip of the grip, the brake lever is 4" but it is obviously bent out a little on the end.

There are some aftermarket levers for the GL1100 that have the dogleg. I have a pair on my 1100 and love them.

will have to do some more figurin on this.. thank you much for the help. will have to do the brake as well so there is a match.

Sorry, They are different on each series, 1100, 1200, 1500, & 1800. Not sure on the 1000.

A 1500 has a hydraulic clutch, as does the 1200 and 1800, the 1100 and 1000s have a cable operated clutch so obviously the lever won't work.
