Adjusting brake lever

The front brake lever on my 1150GS is in slightly the wrong position for me, how do I slacken it off and move it around the handlebar slightly?
Thanks
Simon

Are you talking about rotating the handgrip about the handlebar? If so, there's a clamp bolt (Allen head) under the multi-function switch on the face of the grip housing. Remove the screw on the front face of the multi-function switch, the screw that goes into the MF switch from behind (reached under/rear side of housing), and lift the MF switch away from the housing to expose the Allen bolt.
