How about those really expensive fancy aftermarket levers they sell in the bike shops?
I think I'm going to try the Moose Racing box for $40. It fits between the clutch perch and the cable and apparently has pulleys or gears to give some mechanical advantage -- and I'm assuming it'll be easily reversible. What I'd really like is something more on the theory of the throttle tamer -- easier pull at the start and then maybe easier to hold in at the fully "in" position -- like a compound hunting bow. Not sure if the Moose has that "cam effect" or just reduces pull effort linearly. Pazzo levers may be in my future too.

To fit the EZ Pull clutch I had to modify the perch to accept the larger diameter on one of the cable housings.
To reverse it you would need a bushing to re adapt to the smaller BMW OEM cable housing to the perch.
