Also, there is more play in that lever when the bike is warm versus cold. So, if you adjust it, leave very little play when adjusting cold so the increased slack when warm still allows you to get into Neutral w/o issue.

ok, so I tightened up the clutch cable last night to the point where bike shifts into neutral easily (and into other gears) when engine is cold. I let the bike warm up, took it for a spirited 30 min ride and as StPeteAPB mentioned, cable may have stretched when warm as upon returning to garage, the bike had some difficulty getting into neutral- a very very light touch is needed. At higher rpms, the bike feels like its old self again. If I leave the cable as is, meaning it is loose when warm, is there any harm to the engine/bike? I an under the impression that slightly loose is better as the clutch engages completely and slippage is at a minimum. Looser cable would also indicate less chance of breakage no?

When it's warm, just adjust that screw at the hand lever a 1/4 turn, if even that. See if you get into Neutral better.

When the bike is cold - it's usually not running ...
Your bike will always get warm in a short period of time and that cable will create that slack, again. You can have the tiniest amount of play when cold to almost nil. Again, it's cold and taught 'cause it's been sitting and not running - so there can create no damage.
