My clutch engages too quickly and so doesn’t allow slippage. Which isn't a problem unless I’m trying to creep at about 5mph or starting from a complete stop (stalls the engine if I’m not paying careful attention).

Can it be adjusted for better play? And if so, How?

The position at which the friction point occurs in the lever travel can be adjusted using the adjuster by the lever pivot. The span over which the engagement takes place cannot be adjusted. That just takes practice. I'm very happy with the clutch action on my bike compared to others I've owned.

.....and the clutch engages further out than I would prefer. It engages at about a quarter inch from full release. Very irrirating.

Thanks. I can live with and easily get use to the tight engagement, but not the engagement point. Quess I better do a better job of reading my manual.

Try revving the motor (to generate a gyroscopic effect), pulling the clutch in more and dragging the back brake. It should work fairly easily on this bike, especially if you maintain an upward forward gaze.
