Question about Motorcycles
A badly adjusted clutch cable. They are only made of wire and the constant pulling causes the wire to stretch. That is why you should adjust the cable every 1000 miles at the most. But you should check it at least once a week.

The clutch lever must have been pushed in when i tried to install the push rod the first time so the push rod didn't get pushed in all the way.

go to this http://www.cmsnl.com/yamaha-rt1-19701971_model8356/partslist/A-09.html and then click on "view big image", this will give you a diagram of the clutch etc,, the adjustment (No. 26) may need looking at, or (No.11,12,) have broken.Basically you turn 26 in (clockwise) untill you feel light resistance then back off 1/2 turn (been years since i worked on one of these!) this should give you freeplay, have you just got the bike?, and do you think it has been stripped lately(ie the clutch). PS I am not affiliated with the web site i offered above, just a handy reference for you maybe? cheers

That is a bit strange. Did the previous owner install stronger springs than the stock ones? Compare the effort to pull your clutch handle to what it takes on a new 125. Be sure you have clean 10w40 motor oil in the gearbox. No synthetics or special additives. Replace the rod and the lever assembly. The rod, lever and oil should eliminate the problem assuming the springs are stock.
Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

Testimonial: "Thanks, very helpful because you were right, stiffer springs were added."
the "cluch push rod" should be pushed back by the cluch springs, if there was a bearing on the end it would have broken up and be laying inside the cluch case in bits! if you have taken the cluch to bits there is a thrust washer behind the cluch body and gear box shaft if you left this washer out you wont have a cluch? best bet is get a hayns service book for your bike maybe off e-bay and you will have all the info you need to fix it plus all the photos as well of all the parts

The clutch lever should have some tension, so could be a problem with the hydraulic actuator stuck, or a failure of the clutch. try bleeding the clutch, or pull the clutch cover off and see if the pressure plate moves
