1985 Voyager 1300 Clutch handle hard to pull and doesn't have much travel

I just picked up a 1985 voyager 1300. The clutch handle is hard to pull and doesnt snap all the way back on its own. It engages, but the last little bit has to be pushed forward. In addition, there is very little engagement travel in the handle. It makes starting from a stop more difficult since you let the handle almost all the way out before it starts to move the bike, then being careful not to dump the clutch and stall it. I am mechanically inclined for sure, but I have never tackled a clutch before. Any input would be appreciated. Can this be adjusted? Or does it need replaced? I know it is hard to answer without seeing it, but any thoughts on what direction to go. Thanks.
