Clutch handle adjustment

Is there an "easy" way to make an adjustment so that I don't have to let the clutch handle out so far before it engages the clutch and I start rolling? My bike only has 15,000 miles but I feel like I have to let the clutch handle out quite a bit before I start moving. Maybe it's just the size of my fingers that make me feel that way. Any info is greatly appreciated.
Tks,
Mike

Your profile says you have a DL1000. Clutch Lever Mod to change engagement point (Vee)

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Thank you. Unfortunately when I click on the link it says the "server has gone away." Any other options?

It's up now. Try it again. If no joy, the thread is about shortening the push rod by grinding a little off one end. Realshelby may join in as it is his mod.
