Here is a link to the workshop manual here in the general discussion forum:


Clutch adjustment is discussed on page 15. This manual may not be for the year of your bike, but the adjustment is the same.

If you don't get the clutch adjusted reasonably within the cable adjustment range: There is a basic clutch adjustment described on page 3-17 in the manual linked below.
