my cluth is relativly hard to pull in and the friction zone is very small..maybe 1.5 inches total from full clutch to engaged clutch. meaning all the travel from the grip till about 1.5 inches before the cluch lever is at rest does nothing then the last 1.5 inches has all the friction zone. does anyone have any experience with this problem or a possible solution.

bike is a 2000 sv 650. 12,600 miles
the fine tune adjustment is pretty much screwed all the way out to take up the slack and keep the lever tight at rest.

im hoping maybe a new clutch cable will fix this. not a new clutch :D thanks for any advice.

Yes. You have your clutch adjusted improperly.

Check your manual for the recommended setting, but you should have about 1/4-1/3" of play in the lever. Having the clutch adjusted so there is no slack will cause this problem.
