So my bike pulls when I shift into first the handle peices are basically loose as it can.. the part that tightens the handle itself..and I have messed with the clutch lever a little but I'm still having issues how does the clutch lever effect the handle end if at all or what's my problem?

At the bottom end of the cable do you have both nuts on top of the projected mount on the front cover?

This is where they belong - on is a lock nut for the other.

Having one above and one below the mount causes all sorts of weirdness..

Try adjusting it from the bottom. Wind the top adjustment in all the way and back out about three turns. Now adjust the bottom until the handlebar lever has roughly a 1/2 inch of play.

Fine tune the adjustment now at the handlebar lever adjustment.
