    Clutch Drags

    Hey here's the deal I recently replaced my kick axle assembly on my 2001 yz 125 i didnt change or touch anything on the clutch besides removing the cable i re assembled everything like the manual told me however when i started the bike everything seemed fine except when riding around i noticed that the clutch when i pull it in doesnt fully disengage the engine from propelling the bike forward. Only at high rpms does the clutch actually fully engage and the bike stops accelerating. Only at low rpms does the bike want to move when the clutch is pulled in, except when the bike is stationary is only begins to lurch forward when the rpms are really low (its about to cut out) I changed the oil from whatever the previous owner had in it to 80w Bel-Ray Gear Saver idk if this is a problem as the temperature im riding at is around 25 Celsius or 80 Fahrenheit i have tried adjusting the clutch cable in many ways fooled around with it for like 5 hours, but im new to MX and dirt bikes so i only have a general idea of whats going on The clutch and clutch action worked completely fine before i replaced my kick axle assembly the only thing i fooled around with was the clutch cable and changed the oil thats the only 2 problems i can think of. let me know anything that could be of help thanks in advance Connor
