The clutch doesnt fully disengage any more, making it hard to put into gear and hard to select neutral, Is there any way I can adjust it other than the cable?

probably but I'm not 100% familiar with Z200's.

It will also depend upon your level of expertise? I'd be pulling the clutch cover and having a squizz whats happening.

Im at work at the mo, but I will check it out tonight, some older honda singles have an adjuster on the cover, like a screw and lock nut arrangement, but not this.
the oil is a bit over full tho, maybe thats doing it

Here's a generic guide to motorcycle clutches and adjustments,down the bottom if you click "adjustment screw" it will show you the type of adjuster some bikes have on the end of the clutch push rod

sometimes it can be related to the type of oil you are using and I also reccomend lubing the cable

Some bikes have that adjuster under the cover on the end of the cluch basket

There's an adjuster in the mid section of the clutch cable as well as at the lever (see cables diagram cable #3). The clutch assembly is a fairly simple set-up & doesn't identify an internal adjuster on the pushrod.

heres a link to a US site that has full parts diagrams for your Z200
