If you are adjusting the clutch by using the knurled knob at the hand clutch lever, all you are doing is adjusting the span of the lever to the handlebar.

The clutch adjustment is made at the cable where it attaches to the throw out lever above the side engine cover.

The proper clearance is determined by pulling the cable cover out from the hand lever. There should be at least a 3mm gap between the larger part of the cable sheathing and where it enters the lever housing. 5mm is better. Squeeze the lever and it will pull the sheathing/cable cover back against the lever housing.

If that is correct, then I guess they all do that, but my bike actually is pretty easy to move around in the morning.
