Need help with clutch cable adjustment

Good evening guys. I hope and pray you can help me. So I have a '03 Gixxer 750 and I just recently Installed a set of Pazzo Shorty levers and after reading the instructions and watching a few video's on installing these levers, my clutch lever sticks. It won't spring back after you pull it in. I've messed with the adjustment knob from all the way in to the lever, to all the way practically out. I'm stuck I've read the service manual but don't want to start getting into the engine area. Please help thanks.

Re: Need help with clutch cable adjustment

Could have just overtightened it.
Pop it off ...look for anything that looks like it could hang it up.
If nothing ...Reinstall with some grease.
When retightening the bolt...sqeeze the lever. When it starts dragging you have gone lil to far.
Good time to lube the cable also.
