Yep, there are a few pages in the owner's manual that cover adjusting clutch free play. You'll either need to adjust at the lever, or, if they moved it too much for you, at the clutch housing end of the cable. Both adjustments are covered in the manual.
I'll assume the reason this bothers you may be short fingers? If so, simply replacing the lever with an adjustable lever may be the optimal solution for you.
There should only be a very minimum amount of free play in the lever- the actual position of the bite point didn't change, just what angle of the lever pull reaches it.

"This old engine has a nickels-and-dimes sound to it. As if there were a lot of loose change flying around inside. Sounds awful, but it's just normal valve clatter. Once you get used to that sound and learn to expect it, you automatically hear any difference. If you don't hear any, that's good." -- Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
