Make sure your cable has no sharp bends in it.
Adjust the cable holder (where the cable housing ends at the engine) on the engine so it lines up with the clutch arm and lock down the locknut..
Oil the cable with some motor oil and slide it back in the outer part.
A bit of oil or grease inside the clutch arm/pushrod will help too.
I've never run anything but the stock cable and lever.
