I got a stunt comp coming up this thursday and this is stressing me out!
Maybe I'm just easily confused but this seems contradictory.
Are you saying the clutch won't grab or the clutch won't release?

SOUNDS like the clutch is engaged and won't release. The oil in your motor and the engine turning is enough to make the rear wheel turn slowly when off the ground. I had the same issue on my zx7 way back when after installing new clutch plates. Ended up being too much pressure in the slave cyclinder and wouldn't allow the clutch to disengage (it was hydraulic). Dropped it by Motorcycles Unlimited and Patrick fixed it for fiddy free. I wish I could help, but it sounds like an easy adjustment for someone with the knowledge.

Im pretty sure its all an adjustment issue. If its not then the stack height is off. The wheel is expected to turn some in gear and on a stand. If you cant stop it with your hand, adjust it out.

if my bike is in neutral, and I pull in the clutch and click it into first, the wheel immediately starts spinning as if the clutch wasn't ever pulled in. it does this no matter where the clutch is adjusted.

Its normal to see that. Can you stop it with your hand? Hold the foot brake and see if it stops it. Then try to hold it with your hand. If not, get some help.

I don't take my bike to any shops in Waco. Thats why I'm asking everyone here for advice.

gotcha....so you can't come to a stop and pull in clutch without the bike trying to move forward or stalling out? correct?

I would do more to try to adjust it. If that cant fix it, your stack is wrong.
