Clutch adjustment?

Is the top clutch cable adjuster (on the bar) the only clutch adjustment available on the Versys?

On mine (2009) I've noticed the top cable adjuster is almost all the way backed out. Not sure if that means I'm just due for a cable replacement or if there's something else with the clutch that's out of adjustment somewhere.

Clutch itself seems to function just fine.

look at the bottom end of the cable where it hook`s to the clutch lever, I think it is called a barrel adjustment

Go to Section 6-6 of the manual......

Didn't realize the service manual was available online. Sweet! Is there a copy of the 2009 manual or are there not any significant differences between 2007-2009?

AND - the '09 has a different (and BETTER!!!) front brake master cylinder.
