    Is this a 2010 110" bike or 2010 103". Did you mean 2001 103"? If you have a CVO bike then the clutch is hydraulic, other wise you just adjust until you have positive pressure on the release plate, then adjust your clutch cable accordingly.

You must "unadjust" the cable first. Roll the rubber boot back on the clutch cable. Break the lock nut loose and adjust the cable to as short as you can. Then, remove the derby cover. Have the bike sitting as straight up as can safely (you don't want the bike to fall over) so primary oil doesn't run out. In the middle of the clutch assembly there is a screw with a lock nut on it. Break the lock nut loose. Turn the screw inwards until you feel resistance. You don't want to start releasing the clutch, just until you feel firm resistance. I usually back the screw off and back in several times to get a good feel of whats going on. Then with the screw in against the resistance, back off 1/2 to 1 complete turn. Lock the lock nut down. Then adjust the cable out until you get an freeplay of about the thickness of a nickle at the handlebar clutch lever. Replace the derby cover on the primary and try the clutch to make sure it's like you want it. You may have to tweak the adjuster on the cable to get it to your liking. Just make sure you have some freeplay in the lever when finished. If not, your throwout bearing in the tranny won't last long. While you're at it, check you transmission oil level.

How can I adjust the clutch?

there are 2 types used, depends on year.
cable (adjusts like all cable cars made, say 1/2" 12mm free play a the nut.
isuzu spec is
The clutch pedal free-play should be 0.20-0.59 in. (5-15mm).
OR (if opted)
hydraulic clutch actuator. self adjusting
if the MC fluid levels drops, it's bad, slave or mc, or both
see leak?, then that part is bad. (look for leaks)
ive answered here many times, same topic

depending which engine you have tells whether cable or hydr. (unstated engine nor country)

so i toss coin , lands on cable after all only it adjusts
see the ? below
loosen that,nut and set the free play
all repair books in print cover this. fully.
if you dont have a cable ,nows the time to say.

How do i adjust the clutch on my 2004 Harley Davidson Heritage Softail

Try this:

Loosen clutch cable all the way (so you don't get a false setting).
Loosen clutch push rod adjuster (in center of pressure plate).
Turn adjuster in until it JUST touches.
Back off 1/2 to 1 turn and tighten locknut.

Be careful when tightening locknut that the adjuster doesn't turn also, decreasing play.

Readjust clutch cable, leaving 1/16" to 1/8" slack.

Hi I am thinking of buying a 2005 Shogun 2.5 TD Sport. during a test drive I noticed that the clutch was slipping and they have said "they will fix it" any tips on what to look for before I...

They will have to replace the clutch as there is no adjustment it is operated via a hydraulic system,Make sure the timing belt and balance belt have been replaced as service spec. I am a retired Mitsubishi Technician and the 2.5 D engine is one of the best just bear in mind the timing belts.

92 yamaha fzr 600r clutch lever sticks and clutch slips

Sounds like the bike has been doing wheeles and burnouts. As the clutch plates wear the cable needs adjusting. You have reached the end of the actuating cam. New plates are your best bet.
