    It's stuck plates then! I will be rocking this back and forth inside the garage. Then when the weather permits, i will be in my alley revving it pretending to do wheelies!

    Thanks I'll let u know what happens.

For best results, you need to pull in the clutch lever as hard as you can manage, and hold it so the clutch is disengaged as much as possible. Basically, you want the friction discs to take the minimum amount of engine torque, and let the sticking-whatever-guck to take the balance of it, so that you can use the engine torque to break it.

    Personally, I would take the more progressive approach. Bill and Bandito are experienced riders. You may be too; if so, disregard this. Otherwise, I think it is better to use multiple attempts, even if it means stalling the engine while using less rev's at first. Even rocking it back and forth initially is not a bad idea IMHO, depending on your experience as a rider.
    I stand corrected, the clutch should be fully pulled in to the handlebar. The bike will probably lurch forward a bit... it may go for a bit of a ride. Just be prepared for it. And of course, as above, use lower revs at first to see if it works rather than holding it at 7500rpm and performing an uplanned stunter move.
    Long Live Shervin Of The North!

    ^ No kidding. If you don't want to follow the advice given take it to someone that knows what the hell they are doing.

    my bike is in a similar situation, but the clutch lever seems to have no tension at all. I can pull it back as if it was not attached to anything. Ill have to roll it to see if this solves that problem or if it is something else all together.

    If you have no tension at all then it's likely a broken cable, assuming it's a cable clutch, or low/no hydraulic fluid. Rolling won't help it this case. Check the sprocket end of your clutch cable, the cable end is likely hanging loose, or it might be an issue with your actuator.
