Incredibly tight clutch cable

I'm trying to adjust the free play on my clutch cable to give a little more slack, but no amount of adjustment either on the perch or the other nut on the cable (the one just after the perch) seem to give me any more slack. Is there any other way to adjust the tension on the clutch cable?

When I put taller bars on I took the cable out of the holder thingie and it gave me more slack.

yes,check the lever at the spline shaft next to the starter motor

what dg said. If its not tight the clutch feels crap

you may  have to remove the tank and check the routing

Thanks everyone- I adjusted it at the spline shaft and it's working perfectly!
