My clutch cable broke a couple of weeks ago. I ordered the Barnett cable and replaced it last weekend. I adjusted the adjusting nut until the lever had 10-15 mm of play. I bought the bike used with 2100 miles and it has 6500 on it now. So I know the original cable was pretty easy to pull the lever. This thing now is really tough to pull.

Do you guys think I still may have adjusted it too tight?

Also I can release the lever to about 1/4 left of travel before the bike (for lack of knowledge) kicks in or grabs the gear.

squze the lever a couple times then readjust. Do this in morning when bike is over nigh cold.
You can't adjust clutch when its warm or hot. Did you lube your lever.
