    you should have a jam nut and an adjustment screw.

    if I were closer, I would offer to help.
    I had an issue right after I got my bike where the cluch would not disengage, as the jam nut had come loose and the cable had adjusted itself at the lever. there should be a little freeplay, but not super loose. you also should have a dial where you can change the engagement point/effort I believe, at least I do on the ER6n

    Many of us here could do the job. However, you should teach yourself a few things. Ever consider getting a service manual for your bike? Perhaps a childons or something.

    I guess my thoughts are you have to start somewhere, but basic clutch cable adjustment should be known prior to removing levers =)

    Where the heck is woodhaven anyhow?

    You have an adjustment screw and locking nut like in the bottom left of this pic?

    If so, loosen lock nut ( big one ), turn in small one until there is no play in clutch lever, then back it out until there is about 1/16th inch play (slop) in the lever. Tighten lock nut.

    If you are trying to say that there is already slop in the lever and it still feels like your clutch is slipping, then its not just adjustment that is required.
