I have 12 yr old fat kid hands, so I like the clutch friction point close to the bar. I have a harder time with clutch modulation if the friction point is far away from the bar. Whenever I ride someone else's bike I notice this right away.

ALl of my own bikes have the clutch cable slack adjusted so the friction point is quite close tot he bar, in fact others often stall my bike repeatedly becasue I have it start about 1/3 of the way released from the bar.
The drawback is that te cable slack allows the clutch lever itself to flop in and out becasue there is no tension pulling onit for the first last 1/3 of it's travel.

I have no idea if the F800R is cable or hydraulic clucthed though. For hydraulic clucth friction point adjustment, I have no idea. My old Hurricane 1000 gave me fits witht hat problem, and I never knew how to solve it.
