Clutch lever hard to pull - is this normal?

The clutch lever on my Stryker seems really hard to pull compared to other bikes I have ridden. Is this normal for this bike or do you think there could be an issue with it?

I have done searches on this topic and have not found any threads about this, so I'm wondering if it's just my bike, or if it does not bother anyone else.

I thought the Stryker clutch lever requires a lot of pressure & tried several other Strykers on showrooms-they're all the same.I looked to see if White Bros offered the E-Z boy light clutch kit for the Stryker ( I've used it on Harleys & it works great) anyway my Stryker requires more pressure than my Honda VTX 1800 or my V-Max did. The next time your in a Yamaha dlr try a Raider which is a lot bigger engine & bigger clutch plates, More HP/Torque etc. it is a lot easier than a Streyker. I don't know why the Stryker is as hard as it is it certainly it isn't a High H.P./torque engine, it may simply be a design issue.
