Yes, your problem sounds like cable tension. You'll want little to no slack between the end of the cable and the clutch arm on the engine. If you've installed the small diameter spring that comes with most kits on the cable, engine end, remove and discard it. It really serves no purpose but to increase clutch lever pull. The larger diameter spring is a heat shield. Keep it. If you have any problems after tightening the cable get back to us, we'll try to help. Disregard any advice you might get about adjusting the clutch flower nut until you have good tension and are still having problems.
