I can see it....kinda baffled though...

You started in N and wheel wasn't spinning....
then pulled clutched lever and put in gear and wheel started spinning (which will happen to some degree, but you should be able to stop it by hand).

Then the wheel stopped and I can't tell how...pull in Clutch again?

In gear with the clutch in the plates and fibers are not separating. The rod is not taking the spring pressure off the plates. Its the cable or the stack height is too tall. Im still gonna bet the cable

I'm with this guy....and I'd exhaust that entire effort before tearing back into the plates.

the only way I get any resistance from the clutch is if i have it adjust all the way out on the bottom of the cable and i still have the same problem..

hmmm..

Does your lever actually work the clutch? Or is it just loose? Depending on that determines next step.
Get me year n model and I'll try and help you through computer. Their is lots of things you could of installed wrong / have adjusted wrong and listening to forums could be messing you up also. Theirs only one way it all goes together.

All the advice you have been given has been correct but it often requires more than a couple of vaguely worded posts to diagnose mechanical issues. (Electrical is even worse).
Most of the guys that have posted about this could probably fix it easily if they had the bike in hand. I think a service manual or shop is your only hope.
I could throw out another suggestion...

The clutch cable on many bikes actuates a small arm or lever either outside or just inside the clutch cover. That arm is mounted on a splined shaft if you are off by a tooth or 2 it can make it so there is not enough clutch adjustment possible.

after pulling the clutch cover, i removed the clutch springs, all of the plates and fibers, and came to realize that my clutch basket was WAY too tight, there was no what that thing was going to ever work being so tight. I backed out the 30mm nut, re notched the bolt and went into re-assemble mode.

Now the bike works PERFECTLY!!

It needs to be torqued to spec. Which is tighter then most can tighten without a basket holding tool.
Verify with a diagram you have everything right to the T . Wouldn't want you to get hurt due to a "simple" mistake.
