throttle and clutch adjustment

Just out of curiosity, i seem to have more slack in my throttle now, i.e. the amount i can move the throttle before it starts to pull the cable since i disassembled everything to get the retaining nut out of the bars for my hand guards. How do i reduce this slack? Also what is the ideal amount of lever play before the clutch engages?
Thanks!
