You need to adjust it up some more, so the it pulls the lever on the side of the engine in a little more. The clutch isn't disengaging when you pull the lever.

Hey helmut.I have tryed adjusting it for a couple hours no luck I then took the cable of of the tranny and put it in gear and moved the lever by hand and it still wont roll.It worked fine before I removed the old cable,The old cable was frayed so that is why I tryed to replace it.Is there any special way to remove the cable.Like in gear in neutral I just simply un hooked the cable and removed it and put the new one at the same adjustment as the old.

I can't figure out what would have happened. It don't matter how you take the cable off, it shouldn't have messed anything up.

I doubt that you did any damage doing that. I bet something behind the clutch cover is broken or out of place, but it wouldn't caused by you taking the cable loose. Whatever is wrong with it was probably already bad. Is this the bike that you mentioned a couple days ago and said the clutch wasn't slipping but you didn't have much clutch throw?

no that wasnt me. you were right.I went back out and took the cable off and put a pair of channel locks on the lever and pushed it forward the bike moved in gear > I did not realize how much force was needed to disengage the clutch.Im an idiot. Made the adjustment and all is good thanks
