Adjustable levers do not change where the friction point is. They merely change the distance of the lever from the bar.
OP, using the two spinners that another member pointed out, adjust the friction point. If there is no available cable left at the bar, adjust from the point above the clutch cover. Is this not mentioned in your manual?
It's very common for the friction point of the clutch to be set far out in the travel. This is for two reasons: 1. Experienced riders don't typically pull the lever all the way into the bar to shift gears, and want the action to be quick. 2. Set further out, it slows how fast it wears out. Newb riders typically like the friction point closer to the bar. I did the first year, so I feel your pain. I now have the friction point quite far out in the travel.
Now go out there and adjust it yourself. It's silly and a waste of your time to go to the dealership for a friction point adjustment.
