Clutch range

I really had to get used to the clutch of the FZ6. If I let it go nothing happens until it grips and then the range is very short. It works well for driving fast but in the city and filtering through traffic it's a bit too agressive. I adjusted the clutch cable but it makes the free play larger than it should be.
I wonder if something can be done to make the range a bit larger. Maybe lengthening the lever (that connects to the clutch cable) on top of the clutchcase/gearbox?

My clutch was fine when I got my bike and I didn't understand why the clutch had been getting bad reviews.

Then I took it to the first service and the clutch was COMPLETELY different after that. It felt like I had gotten a new bike and I had to learn the clutch operation again.
I went back to complain about it but they just said it was top quality oil: Castrol Superbike 10W50. Sure is top quality but I certainly didn't like it.

So, there seem to be great differences on how oils affect clutch operation. Some top quality oils might be bad choices for FZ6.
