rotating clutch handle

I would like to rotate my cluth handle forward or down a couple of inches. I am a big guy 6'6ish and the lever hits a little toward the palm of the mid finger joint. If i was to rotate it to hit more in the middle of the fingers it would make it easier to grab and get a full clutch pull, would this rotation mess with the fluid in the reservoir or do you think this would be fine to do?

Well, ya, the fluid level won't read accurately but it should still work okay. Rotating it that far forward, you just want to be real carefull when or should you add more fluid as the fluid level may well be above the seam between the reservoir and the cover.
