No clutch adjustment?

So my clutch isn’t releasing until lever is almost all the way out. Went to adjust cable today and there’s no adjustment. First time I’ve seen cable without adjustment on it. Do I just order a cable that I can adjust or is there something else I can do? Bike has an Ultima open primary

Did you look on youtube for a 'How-to' video ?

I found instructions for installing open primary but didn’t see anything about adjusting clutches. I’ll go look it over again

Everything I’ve found so far shows adjusting the clutches then adjusting cable but I don’t have adjustment on cable.

Thats isn't a stock clutch, its after market dry clutch. I'm not familiar with it. Hopefully others maybe able to help.

Take off the derby cover and take a picture of what's inside.

If that's a Shovel the cable adjuster is on a frame bracket by the starter motor on the left side. Follow the cable down to the primary and the adjuster will be behind the inner primary.
Well a closer look and it doesn't appear to be a Shovel but the cable looks like it goes to the backside of the primary.
