G'day Rob. You could back the adjustments off a bit. The clutch should be engaging (biting) the last 25% of lever travel. If you have it the way you want it doesn't leave any room for wear of the parts or stretch of the cable. If (when) this happens pulling the lever back to the bar will not fully disengage the clutch and give you drag.
Cheers

Hi Rob,
It will soften up with use, new plates often behave like this
