There could be a couple of things that are causing you to have a swore hand....
First thought is that you are too tense. it's completely normal when you are feeling your bike out the first time to grip too hard, and if your using the back brake too much, it will put additional pressure on your hands surprisingly as the front brake doesn't as much.
Second, I adjusted the clutch right away. The dealer has it set to spec, but I look for an inch of freeplay from the tip of the handle to the actual handlebar, which will help you release it much sooner, and easier thus your fingers do not extend as far foreward and strain.
Hope that helps.
