PS.  You could reduce the distance between the pedal fulcrum and the 
push-rod to increase the leverage, but to get the same travel of the release 
bearing you would need more travel of the pedal, i.e. at rest the clutch pad 
would be higher than the brake pad, which would probably need a modification 
to the area around the pedal to allow that to happen.  My 2004 ZS 180 is 
like that, and someone came up with a modification to level the two pads for 
some reason.  No idea why, with left foot clutch and right foot accelerator 
and brake one's feet soon 'learn' the heights of each pedal, and reducing 
the travel would make the clutch heavier (assuming they retained the same 
travel at the clutch itself).
