Default Clutch problems possibly need help

Okay getting my 01 f4i going and put new clutch cable on. When tensioned all the way out the clutch I sent disengaging was wondering if I need a new clutch or not. If anyone has specs on them that would be great. It looks like the the clutch has normal wear but couldn't figure it out. Thanks in advanced and happy riding

Hi, are you saying the clutch wont disengage , did you measure the old and new cables side by side

Yea the clutch will not disengage when clutch cable is adjusted all the way out on both ends and I pull the clutch lever in. Like the clutch is slipping. And yes I measured the cables side by side the older one was stretched and the new one is smaller. I can't figure it out. I had the cover off and still had fibers on the clutches still didn't look to bad. That's where I'm lost

Yes the same way and still have no release of the clutch. On stand the tire acts like it's in gear but in neutral the tire spins freely I'm lost

Hi , is the clutch lever mechanism working at the clutch cover, take off the cable and operate the mechanism manually, see that your getting resistance when you pull it

Yea it's working fine I get resistance when I manually do it but the bike tire is still not moving. I can see the clutch plates and friction plates moving when I manually move the arm forward I'm lost

Hi, just wondering how you can see the clutch plates lifting and separating when you operate the lifter mechanism, have you had the cover off
