What machine?

There is a adjustment on the caliper itself.

The manual spell's it out nicely

There is a adjustment on the caliper itself, the arm that the cable pulls that is attached to the caliper.

Sounds like you need to take up the slack there.
I had to make the adjustment quite a few times on my 650.
I think it is 1/2 the reason people are installing a line lock from the automotive application.

Does the arm on the caliper that attaches to the cable move when the park pedal is depressed?
