problem with clutch..need help

Hey guys, my clutch was starting to get really hard to pull in, so I bought a new clutch cable. When I took off the old one, I thought for sure that the cable had to be the problem because it was very hard to pull in and out.

Well I put the new one on, and it is still very hard to pull in the clutch. I cleaned up the lever where it connects to the clipon, and still its very hard to pull.

Any other ideas on what may be causing this?

My bike is red, black, clean, waxed, and fast.

unhook the cable from the little arm on the clutch cover. Now does the lever and cable move freely?

If not... make sure you didn't tighten the clutch lever bolt too much.

If they do move freely... then I guess you're going into the motor.

I actually checked it the opposite way, by unhooking it from the lever, and it seemed to move in and out pretty easy. So im guessing it has something to do with the lever. The lever squeaks when pulling it in(I thought the squeak was from the cable before I replaced it,but it still squeaks after replacing cable).

I don't know how the lever could go bad though..

Should I try putting some grease in between where the lever connects?

there is a bolt that goes through the lever from the top. Then a nut that goes on the bottom of the bolt. The nut is just a locknut... it doesn't tighten the lever at all. Remove the locknut and then loosen the bolt a little till the lever moves freely again. Don't use grease as it will collect dirt and also harden and make things worse. Once you get the lever to work correctly... tighten the locknut while holding the bolt from turning. The everything should be set.
