Hi guys, I finally finished my bike and everything except my clutch seems fine. I haven’t started it yet. But the lever is really tough to pull in. I’m sure I didn’t install correctly. Also the cable line is stripping when I press and depress clutch. What is the issue and how do I solve this!

First... remove that small spring behind the clutch arm, (it's not needed & it makes the cable harder to adjust).

Next... Can you see any physical damage to the cable anywhere?

Do you have lots of sharp bends in the clutch cable? (Those will make it hard to pull)
