So i just had my cable snap last week and replaced it. The replacement cable seemed short to me but my old cable looked stretched so i figured it was right. When replacing the cable i had to have both adjuster nuts tightened all the way just to get the line and ridge on the clutch lever to line up barely. Today i went to ride and now my bike will not go. When i am in first it will slowly push me forward barely. If i loosen any of the adjuster nuts, the line and ridge do not meet up at all. is there something i missed. I hope this is the problem any other suggestions would be helpful. Also when adjusting the cable should the clutch lever be forward or held against the handlebar. Thanks Mick

Well it sounds like the cable may be a bit short because it isnt releasing the clutch fully hence the slow crawl in first. Are both the adjusters completely closed or open?

Got it working. i took the cable all the way off and routed it a shorter way slightly and i got it working. i have a little play in the lever so i know that the clutch isnt always engaged.
