I have what I assume is the Birmingham type ‘twin’ lever as mentioned. The following picture indicates what I did to effectively double the leverage. It obviously costs nothing and only took me 10 minutes to do with the pillar drill. I can easily swap back to the original leverage but at the rather obvious cost of an extra hole in the brake lever. This converted a very hard and ‘dead’ feeling lever to one that was very spongy. In hindsight a 1.5x increase in leverage would probably have been best. When my linings gets back from Saftek I’ll road test and see how both settings feel on the road.

My SOC membership pack came in the post but my first Yowl will be the December one. Thus, it appears I’m going to miss whatever comments are in the October Yowl.
