I hate people that makes me thinks too much.
The lever adjustment won't have any effect on clutch engagement, only on disengement. Too much free play affects disengagement only. A low lever adjustment with too much freeplay will make it hard to push in gear with the engine off, it'll want to pull while running. Not enough free play destroys clutches cause they can't fully engage causing slippage which leads to even less free play and more slippage. Repeat till the bike has 7 neutral gears.
So we were both right.....and wrong.
