Question about Motorcycles
I am not familiar with your model. However what I can think of that would cause the symptom you have with a basket case assembly: Improper clutch assembly( pressure plate not engaged properly with inner clutch hub; needs to be rotated 1 or more teeth so as to seat fully on plates), improper plate stacking or # of plates. Incorrect location of clutch cable mounting bracket. If clutch arm is of the splined type, incorrect placement on the splined release shaft. hope something helps

SOURCE: Clutch cable adjusters
Bowden cables like your clutch cable work on the law of the lever. Think of lifting up a heavy weight hanging on a rope using a lever balanced on a fulcrum. The rope is in tension and the fulcrum is in compression. To adjust the point of lift you could either vary the length of the rope or adjust the height of the fulcrum. The outer sleeve of your clutch cable is made out of plastic-coated steel, square-section wire and is resistant to compression forces along its length. This outer sleeve works as your fulcrum and, because it is flexible, lets you put it where it is needed - at the end of your handlebar. The cable inner is like the rope in the lever example and resists only stretching forces. It is threaded down through that snaking fulcrum back to where control movement is needed. The cable adjusters let you fine tune the length of the fulcrum, and therefore the lift range of the inner cable.,,,

There is a clutch linkage kit you can purchase which will take the "**** " out. It is mounts between the end of the clutch cable and the transmission. I have one on my bike and love it. Easy to adjust and customizes the clutch to you.

you will have to remove the compesator nut and the circlip in the centre of the clutch hub , remove the nut securing the clutch basket on (left hand threads on this nut so be carefull ) remove the little jackshaft nut and stater gear then remove the 2 bolts holding the starter motor on then you will find 6 or so bolts holding the inner primary case on remove these and the inner primary case will come free with a little jiggle. unfortuantaly you will also have to remove the rear wheel ,suspension and swing arm to get the new belt on. hope this helps

check there are no kinks or sharp curves in the cable, that it routes cleanly. Otherwise you need to look further at the clutch itself.

On most bikes, there is a rod going down the center of the clutch. The lever on the case pushes this rod in when you squeeze the lever on the handlebar. If the rod going through the clutch will not move, the clutch will not release. It doesn't move very much, maybe a few millimeters. If you cannot remove the rod[you may have to use a magnet to pull it out] then the rod is bent. This could have happened if you assembled the new clutch incorrectly. If the sequence during reassembly was wrong, the disks were jammed. When you squeezed the clutch lever, something had to give. The clutch rod.
