Op... do you feel any resistance when you pull the clutch lever?..it should be smooth and consistent. You should be able to feel it when the 2mm to 3mm of slack has been taken up. It should not be heavy nor should it be too light.

I dont know if you got it or not i got a 87 intruder 1400 and i had that issue and you got to power bleed the clutch or itll never work right, at least for my bike and i used a squeeze bottle like the ones tattoo artists use.i couldnt find a syringe nor could i afford to get one from harbor freight plus it was like 3 in the morning so youtube how to bleed a motorcycle clutch its easy to do

I am confused, why are we talking cable adjustment when the 1400 had a hydraulic clutch? I would recommend ensuring the line is bled properly and increasing the idle.
