I have a Wunderlich clutch lever and the settings allow the clutch lever to sit closer the bars at max adjustment. It's good for me as I have some tendon issues in the left hand but essentially I'm getting a slightly less complete disengagement of the clutch when lever is set that way. I use the extreme setting when my hand is acting up. I suspect that extending the lever at the other end of the cable would have the same effect. As the slack is set per the manual it's only the disengagement that is affected. I understand that the hydraulic kit also has less overall travel than the stock. Sadly the takeaway is that there's no free lunch!
