No adjustment, however it is a hydraulic clutch. You might first bleed the clutch and see if the feel changes.

Aside from that i would wait until you have concrete symptems. First, they generally get stiffer, as the spring fingers form a more acute angle.
Then they begin to slip under heavy load in hgih gears.

Unless you ride the clutch or feather it incessantly, these rarely go sicne the motor doesnt have enough power to hurt it!
