Clutch pressure plate adjustment

I just reassembled the clutch basket and was wondering how much tension needs to be present.
The shop manual says to keep 5mm protruding from the surface of the lock nut.
I did just that and tried to operate the clutch and it seems stiffer that what I remembered when the bike last ran.
Is there a "method" I need to follow to adjust the pressure plate tension?
Also, do the screws that go over the 6 springs need to be tightened all the way?
