Clutch question on '97 BUBF

I have one small problem on my bike and that is the (hydraulic) clutch, it's too sensitive.
Otherwise it's a great bike and it's used as a tourer not a "show" bike so it's a little tatty but mechanically sound!
Clutch only needs a touch and it's gone from fully free to fully engaged. The bike doesn't have adjustable reach on the levers either so it all happens near the end of the travel. Makes it really hard to control at slow speeds and when maneuvering. As far as i can ascertain there is no clutch slip and it clears perfectly.
Any thoughts please?
