Sounds like the plate stack is thicket than OEM specs, or near the max. As the clutch wears in, you will loose cable clearance and have to back the adjusters off in order to maintain the correct amount of slack, so as long as it works alright now, you should be OK as things progress.

So since they are all the way out as it wears your saying that ill be able to turn in the cables or just replace the cable as the clutch wears because I pretty much have the adjusters all the way out without any slack in the cable I had to do it just to get the bike not to stall when put in gear

Ride the bike for an hour while keeping a constant eye the cable slack. It should stop dragging soon. Riding without free play in the cable is like riding with the lever part way pulled in. Very bad for the clutch.

Ok so I called hinson up they seem to think my pressure plate is causing it so I swapped back to the original and still the same issue I swear its the springs because the hinsons springs are longer than the stock ones so maybe ill switch them out and see if that's the issue your input has been great so far oh I forgot when I shift the bike into first I can get it to go but can feel it drag big time but going from first to second it won't go

The springs could be the problem if they are coil binding as the pressure plate lifts. I don't believe in aftermarket springs for the most part.
