I use only the small spring between the cable standoff and the clutch arm to keep the cable from coming out of the arm.
If I start the engine, elevate the back wheel, and pull the clutch, the motor ticks along nicely, but the back wheel does not move at all. I hope that goes some way to explain how the clutch is being operated correctly by the clutch lever.
