It feels like the clutch is not engaging in my 1992 Suzuki Intruder 800. After I press it, its still hard to shift gears and once on gear she stills moves with the clutch pressed. I am assuming its the clutch cable. Am I correct and if so how do I change it?

Sounds like you either need to adjust the clutch cable - there should be a little bit of play in it before it disengages the clutch - or you need a new clutch kit (plates, springs, etc). What mileage is on the bike and has the clutch ever been changed?
can you get it out of gear? can you change gear does the clutch drag ( shifts are difficult ) the clutch plates are froze/ stuck together, remove clutch, check plates for rust clean soak in fresh oil replace any that are rusty..
Not adjustable attached to the underside of the lever, remove from clutch some switches are cliped together in 2 halves & will split in half if you release the clips others wont, spray a little thin oil around switch if problem continues replace
does the clutch lever release "sharply" and snap back after engagement? then lean bike over drain about a quart of oil, take off access cover to clutch and check to see if you have any broken clutch springs. if thats looks o.k. you"ll probably need new clutch plates. a real quick check when you ride the bike smell the oil, does it smell burnt? if it does, the plates are probably no good.
