If you mean vertical play, then you can try tightening the nut. The worst that will happen is it will make the clutch harder to pull in, and you can re-loosen it a bit if that happens.

You need play in the lever so you dont over streach the cable and snap it. On my 05 I can pull the lever and I have about 1/8 of a gap before I get tension on the clutch.

I just checked mine because i never bothered with it and i have between 1/4 to 1/8 inch play. If you tighten it the next time you have to replace the handel it might be a pain to get the new one in. I would order a new lever like a pazzo if you dont want any play and a better feel.
