Default yz250 clutch problems

     

my 1996 yz 250 that i recently picked up had some clutch problems, it has aftermarket cables and stuff but i did not feel any dragging or slipping and all of the sudden it lost all tension, and it is not the cable, the arm on the engine end of the cable just is completely loose and i do not feel any more resistance, i do have a youtube video up about it and any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

the video title is " 1996 yz250 no clutch tension "

Have you popped the clutch cover off and looked at anything?

Those clutch arms do wear and will need replacing at some point due to this wear. The cam end of the arm will wear down.
Also clutch baskets will wear groves in them and cause the clutch plates to hang.
