Default Cable or clutch

So I was riding to the store yesterday. I started out and everything was as normal. As I made my first stop at a stop sign I was a couple back. So of course I left it in gear. So when I came to a stop the bike wanted to keep moving forward even with the clutch all the way in. I noticed it was also a lot harder to shift. So I turned around and went home. Even when the bike is off and in gear. I pulled the clutch in to move it and it's like it's hanging up. It moves. But takes a lot more to move it.

I bought it used and didn't get a manual with it. There's no play in the handle. But the way it acts it's telling me it's not tight enough

Book is actually a download on here or you can buy a disc on eBay like I did before I found out I could get it free here.
From your grabby symptoms first described and your recent disclosure of zero freeplay at the 'handle' ....I think you may have more than simple adjustment problems.
Might be best to get it to a dealer or a competent mechanic for a hands on opinion.
Good Luck.

So I tried loosening the cable to give the lever slack. Didn't really change anything. So I tried tightening it down even farther. I had 0 play in the lever. And that didn't make a difference. I road it around my driveway both times trying give it a chance to adjust.

I did notice now that it's really hard to get into gear when it's off now tho. Both before I changed anything and after.

I'm guessing the clutch is going. But I don't want to overlook something small.

Motorbikerx thanks for the video. It didn't show your 2nd text till after I sent my last reply. My guess it's probably the clutch going out. So I'm going to prob order up a barnet scorpion clutch and replace it hopefully before winter. It's the same style as my old GSXR750R that I had to change. So I'm not to worried. I was just hoping that it was something basic so I could get more than 2,200 miles in this year.

Just out of interest what exactly are you riding and how many miles has it done.
Keep us updated on the outcome thx

Just a thought if the cable was actually stretched it would exhibit those symptoms wouldnt it? Wonders if the cables actually do stretch that much?

Clutch cable adjustments are done overnight cold. You need just a tad of cable slack--about 1/8" gap where the lever and perch converge when you gently pull on the lever to take up the slack. Furschtant?
