Not all that long ago, I was messing with my clutch cable, where it is attached to my handlebars. I found that if I had it adjusted too far one way, I had no clutch response; too far the other way and well.........you get the idea.

Let's start with that.......is your cable set correctly?

I did have to put a new one on when I first got it because the guy before me had almost snapped the last one from having it so tight

I'm not sure what is meant by "jump and grind". Grinding noise is a sign that something is seriously failing in the drive train.

jerk felling and a noisy gear grinding sound like you will die 90 percent of the time but I mean a felling like if you was to take you bike and make it go and stop as fast as you could over and over with a little grinding sound almost as if lunging forward like in gear then out of gear "jumping and grinding "

Yeah it does I was just wondering because with the clutch out of the mix I can ride in first all day no noise at all that is what leads me to thank the clutch but I just did not want to get taken to school when I went to the shop if you know what i mean
