I just looked, I only have the owners manual for Road Star
its says to loosen the adjustment at the grip-lever end first to get more freeplay. If you cant get enough adjustment at that point, there is an inline adjustment half way down the cable (about level with the cyllinder head) - there is no lever down at the engine end, apparently the cable goes straight into the engine block.
But its the same idea, when you push the clutch lever at the grip with your fingertip, it should move very easy (freeplay or slop) until you feel it hit the throwout bearing in the clutch, then it gets harder to push further. That freeplay should be at least 1/4" at the end of the lever as it moves.
If there is no freeplay, that is why your clutch is slipping.
Les is also correct, if you used a car motor oil with modified mpg enhancers (more slippery than standard oil) that will also make your clutch slip, because a motorcycle clutch is in the oil bath.
there way to tell if oil is ok for a motorcycle, look at the SAE lollypop logo on the bottle, the bottom half of the outer circle must be blank. Google this if its not clear.
