Adjusting handgrips

Hi all. First post and I figured I'd get my mechanical ignorance out front and center from the beginning.

I just picked up a 04 GS. On the GS the front brake lever is rotated forward too far to be comfortable for my little girly hands to grab, and I can't figure out how to rotaate the switchgear assembly and brake lever backwards towards me a bit so that it is easy to reach. All I've managed to do is loosen the mirrors a bit. I tilted the handlebars back a bit, but can't go any further without banging the tank at full lock.

I did search the forum, and have loked at the service manual, but it is still not clear to me.

Can anyone tell me how to rotate the switchgear? I appreciate it. Otherwise loving the GS so far. Much better riding position than the RS, and the 04 motor feels better than the 02 (maybe just tuning).
