1098 - clutch picking up too high

I need some help....
I just got the open clutch cover, ducati pressure plate and new springs installed on my 1098. All seemed ok for the next 100miles but out of the blue the clutch started to pickup very high, I had to adjust the lever to all the way down to fell closer to normal (but still isn't) , it's not slipping.
I took it back to the place where I got the open clutch installed and after bleeding the clutch system, they said all should be ok, the problem remains. Is there a clutch adjustment that I can do?

any help would be greatly appreciated.

I assume you mean the engagement point has moved. Its probably more related to your slave cylinder. If you didn't take it off, when you removed the push rod, you could have an issue with how the push rod is being set in the slave cylinder. First check your springs, make sure they're ok and then bleed the clutch system, I bet its ok.
