The clutch arm is tightend all the way and the back tire Is still locked any ideas? Tips the back tire won't move at all!

The other day I had a similar problem where the back tire wouldn't move at all so I decided to tighten the clutch arm and It worked now I was riding and peddiling while engine was idiling was difficult and the back tire and clutcb locked up again and no matter how much I tighten It It won't engage.

first, the small spring on the bare part of the clutch cable shouldn't be there (still comes with kit, but hasn't been used in many years)

second, that clutch cable should make a gently curve up to handlebars, or it makes clutch very hard to pull and can break

one doesn't just tighten the arm to make the clutch work - search the board here for the steps to adjust cable/clutch

during adjustment, you may find that the problem is the drive sprocket nut is loose letting shaft move instead of clutch moving

vibration often means motor mounts aren't right - noise can sometimes be chain rubbing inside drive cover

Yeah well I put general grease on the chain to see if it would reduce the noise also on inside of the gear cover and gears and now my bike pedals fine and everything but the engine will start and then die... shortly.. why does that happen after me greasing?
