1299S clutch adjustment

Anyone know if the clutch can be adjusted, maybe easily at the lever?
With my clutch lever fully pulled in the bike is still wanting to pull away slightly.

No adjustments for hydraulic clutch. Only lever adjustments or bleeding.
Thanks from Steveo

Mine went south just after I bought it really, I was actually scared I wasn't going to make it home even. Bleeding it out brought it back to life. I routinely bleed my brakes and clutch very often though

They do that. You only need to bleed the master up on the lever usually. literally take 30sec. 1-2 pumps/pulls and its back to normal.

Also, I use this to do my front brakes/clutch. Really makes it easy. Amazon Pneumatic Brake Bleeder

damn, once a month. I had an 1199 for about a year and a half and never had to bleed the brakes once.

I bled mine 5 minutes ago. Rode Tuesday and got that mushy feeling. Can't get neutral at the lights. After bleed it's good!
