I run mine the other way... I got the brake lever mounted a tad high, and the clutch lever in the lower position, since I don't use it so much as the brake.
Well, that is to say, I do what I can to avoid stopping completely, and having a need for the clutch... I try to pace myself in the traffic to avoid the signal lights. I use the lockout button when coming up to a light I must stop for.

...and I usually kill the motor for most stoplights...
Pedal and re-start when it goes green.

IMO, these ht clutches are not really meant to be used a lot.
The less, the btr!
My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!
