Can I ask you about your clutch lever?

Before I put 200 miles on my Wee, I managed to drop it, breaking my clutch lever.

I replaced it with a spare SV clutch lever and have been using it ever since. I just got another lever from eBay. The seller claimed it was a DL one, not a SV one. However, I remember being able to fit my entire hand on the lever without touching the ball with my pinky finger.

If any of you have a stock, unmolested lever, could you let me know the size of the grip area (between the ball and where it angles up to the pivot point)?

Thanks!

I measured 6 & 3/4 inches from the end of the ball to the end of the flat part of the handle, right were it hinges on the black metal.
