How I got rid of (most) shifting roughness

Since the very first moment I got this bike it pissed me the rough and clunky handling of its gearbox, I recently came up with a solution for that. I disassembled the clutch lever and, using a grinding machine, took about 1 mm of the area marked with the red line you can see in the picture below

Now the lever has more travel, which leads to a better clutch disengagement. You need to figure out the exact amount of metal removed, depending on the size of your hands, take too much and the lever will rest too far away from the grip to reach it. I just wanted to share it with you guys.

P.S. Excuse my crappy English.
