Here's how I do it, basically the same as above with a couple clarifications.
1. Loosen the cable adjuster, screw it ALL THE WAY in. While doing this you may want to make sure you pull the clutch lever back against the grip as you go. It's a good idea to take up the slack in the clutch cable as much as possible during this, as some people have somehow managed to disconnect the cable inside the transmission.
2. Your clutch lever should now be all the way back against the grip.
3. While lightly holding the clutch lever against the grip, tighten the clutch adjusting screw till the lever just starts to pull away from the grip.
4. Back the adjuster screw out 1/2 turn, tighten the lock nut.
5. Now adjust the clutch cable for the desired free play at the lever. I set this up so there is almost zero slack with the engine/trans cold, the trans case grows as it warms up and increases the free play.
6. With the engine at operating temp, tug on the cable housing by the tach enough to show you the gap where the cable goes through the mount at the lever. Don't PULL on it, just tug hard enough to take up the slack. You should see a dime to nickel size gap between the cable end and the mount.
Roll the bike backwards on the driveway both while shut off, and while running in 1st gear with the clutch in. There should be very little difference in effort required to roll the bike between stopped and running in gear.
