Adjustable brake/clutch levers
SIR Tricky is correct when it comes to hydraulic systems, like those found on our GL1200's.
If it is cable operated, this adjust ability is possible and I believe has been used for years by the folks who ride off-road.

On some previous bikes I have ridden, I have had to start pulling the lever with my finger tips, and slide the lever to under the first knuckle before I could really get a handle on the control. (sorry about the pun)

The other thing you can try is to put the handlebar at the first knuckle of your thumb when you need to pull the lever in.

In either case, it will take practice (bummer you have to ride) in order for you to get comfortable with the operation of the levers.

Believe me, if you really want it, you can achieve it.

I grew up left-handed, during a time when being left-handed was a bit of a challenge.
You cope and make adjustments, to get what you want.
