I seem to be having an issue with every cable on this bike.

For some reason, my clutch cable is jamming up. The spring inside the clutch cover is no restrained, it's clipped on, but no tension on it. The clutch lever (outside of clutch cover) should be exactly horizontal or a little up? Can't seem to find this in the manual, or online

Anyway, when I pull the clutch lever, it doesn't snap back (deja vu with the throttle issue/resolved)

Even with the clutch cable perfectly straight and vertical (from clutch cover area) it doesn't go back to it's original spot. I've put a bunch of light oil in the cable too. It's gotten better, but not good enough.

I am guessing the cable is just shot, 1 small kink, even if straightened out, might cause the problem. Another thing is the cable seems to long (if I temp. put it where I want it) can anyone recommend a cable about 10" shorter?
