Question about Motorcycles
Am at alose with this problem with all adjustments with clutch cable either will not move or just crall with engine reving in gear
Is the pressure plate (springs) ok? New discs will not work if they don't have enough pressure on them. Do you have any free movement of the clutch at the handlebars, before you feel pressure? Maybe you just need to adjust your clutch cable.

SOURCE: Adjust Motorcycle Clutch Cable
Usually there are 2 adjustment points. One at the clutch lever, and one on the clutch pull on the crankcase. Follow the cable from the handlebars to the engine, there should be an adjust bolt or two. The adjustment at the handlebar lever is usually a screw with a thumbwheel lock nut. Depending on what you are trying to adjust, dictates which one you will use and in what direction it will go. If the clutch is slipping, use the thumbwheel adjuster. Loosen it, back the screw out 2-3 turns, tighten. and check you clutch. if this one is all the way out, go to the crankcase, loosen the bolt on the richt side of the bracket first, then loosen the left one, one turn at a time, checing the clutch. once it's where you want it. tighten the right bolt only. You can do this with a set of open end or box wrenches. An adjustable wrench works in a pinch.

SOURCE: clutch pulling
Your clutch is not fully disengaging.Adjust the cable at the lever until you have plenty of free play.Then adjust the cable at the motor until you have full engagement then readjust lever to 3/8 in play.Fine tune at the motor.It may take a few trys but you can get it.

Did you do an oil change recently? Sometimes a motor cycles clutch shares the oil with the engine and a different kind of oil then the bike requires will cause the clutch to slip. This happens alot especially if someone switches to some types of synthetic oil when the bike had regular oil before the oil change.

Sounds like the bike has been doing wheeles and burnouts. As the clutch plates wear the cable needs adjusting. You have reached the end of the actuating cam. New plates are your best bet.
