you want a little free play on the clutch lever - the cable should not be tight when the lever is out

I was able to get it running a little better! I had to adjust the throttle cable and the clutch, is there a diagram or something so I can get it spot on?

The end of the clutch lever should move 1/4-1/2 inch before there is any tension at all in the clutch cable. the cable needs to be totally slack when the lever is released to prevent clutch slippage and rapid failure. It sounds like your clutch may be worn out if it fails to fully engage.
