I can not get the clutch to completly disingage. I have adjusted cable and even installed a new clutch kit. I am fairly new to the sport. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

How much time on your new clutch kit? They can take an hour's hard use to compress the new linings to the point where they will release cleanly.

Another possible cause is a basket or boss (hub) that is significantly notched from wear by the old plates.
