yz85 clutch lever hard to pull?

So i got a new bike and its an 08 yz85 and it has barely been used and starts first kick. but my problem is that the clutch is very hard to pull back and yes i did change the line and the levver but still same problem. at this point I have to use all of my fingers and my wrist starts to hurt after a short time. I need some help!!!

Pressure plate bolts may be over torqued or they might have the wrong springs in there. Also check the actuator arm. There is a bearing inside there and however it is pretty unusual it could be seized up. Check this by taking the pressure plate off and disconnect the cable the the arm and see how freely the arm moves. There should be no tension or stress on it at all it should spin freely.

      38MM Cast SmartCarb. Purchased a couple years ago for a yz250. Don't have the bike anymore, and it has been sitting around for about a year. Used, but in fine working condition. You can also purchase a different needle for different bikes, as well as rebuild kits from their website.
      Asking $250 shipped to continental United States. I can arrange other shipping options at the buyers expense.

      So I am going to buy a brand new ktm 150sx. Should I wait until the 2019 come out? When does the 2019’s come out? It is March 22, 2018 right now. I have the cash already,but want to make the right decision. Thank you.

      Does anyone know how to, or if you can, change your AMA number? The race number, not the full thing.

      I got all of this stuff to make a second engine with electric start for my 2002 WR250F. Including complete electrical system.
      The only things that are missing is the left side case, and a battery.
      Included is a complete new valve train, and Hotcams. The valve seats were cut by my brother's shop, on a Newen machine, which is state of the art. I lapped the head on a granite surface plate - it's perfect.

      If you're interested, we can get into detail about it. I'm a serious mechanic, and I was totally going to do this, but I got a big bonus, and bought a KTM EXC 350 instead. Check my posts and history on Thumper Talk.
