Bike moving in neutral

ok so i had an accident while back and i am good to ride again so i just replaced my stator cover and some other things to make sure it still runs. Got the bike up and stands and fired it up and low and behold. Even with my lever pulled it still moves. already tried adjusting the on the lever but not in the front sprocket cover. I'm wondering if my cable is that stretched or could it be something more serious? working on the bike right now. just thought i'd post up to see if someone has some input to help out.

It sounds like your clutch pushrod needs to be adjusted.
Bring it by and I'll look at it.
If it's out of adjustment, I'll do it, no charge.

I think he ws saying that the rear wheel spins while it is running in neutral with the bike's back wheel off the ground. all my bikes have done that, even ones that were brand new. I assume it is friction in the gearbox. If it is on the stand when it does this, and you can slide your hand along the back tire (carefully) and stop the wheel from spinning, then I definitely wouldn't worry about it. just my $0.02.

My bad.
Yep, it'll still move, typically because of the oil clinging to the clutch.
Try holding the rear brake with it in neutral and see if the wheels stops but the engine doesn't bog.
