Klx 110 front brake lever solution

I am trying to find a good replacement for my front brake lever on my klx110, but I'm having trouble finding a good lever to go with. I race it in tmgp, but my hands are way too big for the lever position (too close to the bar) and there is no adjustability in the lever. I'm thinking of replacing the lever with an adjustable one, but there's not that many adjustable levers for cable-brakes that I've found. This one on ebay looks like it may be adjustable, but since it's only $11, I'm guessing it could be a POS: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Folding-Brak...-/321958878881

Any ideas? I've thought about trying to bend the stock lever, but I'm not sure that's the best idea.

That's seems like that would not work at all. The pull would not be strong enough and I am sure the cable end is the wrong size.
Just replace it with any full size dirt bike lever. Maybe even an after market lever for a full size dirtbike.

Rob, I hate that first lever you posted. Those were the ones you would get if you were cheap or used as a back up lever. No adjustment either. It's a small lever too.

Why not just get an adjustable clutch lever assembly and flip it upside down?

BTW, something about your current setup doesn't look right. I think it might be partly because your lever clamp is on a part of the handlebar that is starting to bend, which puts the lever closer than if it work on the straight section.

Does that Motion pro from Tbolt have any adjustability in it?
Also, on that ASV lever, could that be easily flipped and run as a brake lever?
Thanks,

I used a pro taper clutch lever for my front brake in mine. Just flipped it upside down. Worked great for me
