dlallen is right.

When I took my friend's kwaka ninja in for servicing, I asked about the throttle play, and the mechanic told me it's normal for all mechanical levers on a bike handle to have play.
The main reason is you need the play because the handle itself turns.
For example, if there is no play, and you turn the handle left, (and this motion causes the throttle cable to pull) then it will engage the throttle without you twisting the throttle... if that makes sense.
Same idea for clutch and brakes. A bit of play is required so the turning of the handles do not engage the components.
