Question about kawasaki KX 125 Motorcycles
When i pull the clutch in when its in gear the back wheel will not turn freely, the clutch cable is adjusted as much as it can be, any ideas thanks
There will be some drag with it in gear and the clutch disengaged. The big test.. does it try to creep along when idling in 1st? The wheel should be free enough to turn by hand sorta, but there should be resistance. Once the oil is warm the drag will decrease significantly. When adjusting the clutch be sure to have the proper free lever. If you have it too tight it's going to start slipping, and hose the plates. You should be able to slip a penny between the handle and the perch at the gap crossed by the cable, before the clutch starts to open (the lever moves on the motor)
Wat lube are you running in the case? some goopey slop will cause a significant drag. When the clutch is in you are still turning all the gears in the transmission, that is a load of drag!
Have you recently rebuilt clutch? Check for notches in the basket dragging on the plates.
Plates and liners out of order will really drag bad. Have you had the plates out of the basket?
When it's idling and you put it into gear, does it kill the engine?

When you ride it does it seem like the clutch is slipping?? and second sounds like a new clutch cable is the next thing to buy as it should not be tightened all the way
