clutch feel on the 1000

I'm about to become the proud owner of a 2008 1000 and have a question with the clutch lever feel. There is about 10 to 12 mm take up before I feel anything happening with the clutch at all, ie: no presure. The clutch works fine and the owner says it has always been like this. The bike is almost to 4000Km, so brand new basically. I have no prior experience with stroms having come over from a 1977 BMW. Any information in relation to this would be fantastic so I can be assured its ok, or rectify the issue.

Another thing is where I can buy a repair manual for the bike? I have seen the Haynes book, but the only one they have is for the wee and not the 1000.

Thanks for your advice.
