Slacken the clutch cable.
Loosen the pushrod adjuster at the clutch centre.
Move the actuator lever by hand up until you can feel it starting to resist the balls of steel... (sounds like me)
Now adjust the cable at the bottom adjuster (you should have one) so it holds the actuating arm in position - you may have to cock around a little at the handlebar end too but don't worry, you can sort that end out later.
Go back to the pushrod adjuster, screw in the centre as per the manual (I've always done it so you just feel the screw connect to the rod, then back it off a quarter turn). Tighten the locknut.
Now adjust the cable at your handlebar lever until you get the minimum amount of free play.
This should now be your starting point. You can fine tune it as you progress but set up like this will provide you maximum lift when you activate the actuator! (sounds like Star Trek)
You should be able to take up all your cable slack at the adjusters. Resist the urge to try and reduce free play by screwing in the pushrod adjuster.
Now you should be able to take a first go by eye, as Robin suggested, and see how things have improved.
Of course, this is just a method to adjust the clutch. It won't fix sticky plates, notches in the outer casing, buckled plates, a too short pushrod etc etc. But let's hope for a simple fix first :o)
