Default Clutch cable replaced, but clutch won't work anymore...

     

Hi, heres the problem...

1996 kx125, just got this bike from a friend of mine but the catch was I needed to replace the handlebars (done), the clutch and brake levers (done) and the clutch cable (done), ...

... I get the bike started in neutral, I pull in the clutch lever to shift it into first, but it jumps and stalls. Next I push start it, I get it into first, ride it a while, pull the clutch lever in again this time trying to shift into second, but it doesn't shift, it just stays in first gear. It seems to me that the clutch doesn't want to engage.

The bike, my friend told me, ran before he gave it to me, but it has been sitting for a while (don't know for how long, probabl not longer han a year).

Any suggestions? I appreciate all of them...
Thanks!

I would take the clutch cover off (right side if facing front) and hold down the clutch lever and look to see if its moving the plates. If its not your clutch cable is not on properly. If it is you might need to change the oil to get the plates moving freely again. The plates might just be stuck. if they don't move and your cable is moving your plates you might need to repace them.
