Clutch cable adjustment question

I changed out my levers (To Kury Zombies). Pretty straightforward, but now the bike must be in Nuetral to start. If in gear and I pull the clutch in, it won't start. Do I need to adjust the cable out more (turn nut away from lever) or is it something else? I have it turned out pretty far right now, and there's not a lot of slop on the lever. Can anyone explain this to me?
Thanks!

There is a switch inside the clutch perch that only allows the bike to start in gear if the clutch lever is pulled. I had the same problems when I put in my levers. After replacing my perch, i pulled the sensor out as far as I could. Sometimes I have to pull the lever in twice to start in gear.
It's no big deal for me, as I usually put it in N anyway and idle while I get my chit together.

Book calls for only 1/8 inch free play. I gave mine a little more because if I had to stay on the clutch much in town seem like it would get hot and when I pulled the clutch lever in it wanted to keep crawling forward.

It be meeeez

Dragboat. You mean you gave it less free play because it was creeping?

I don't know what bike you are referring to, but with a Honda Fury you DO NOT open any clutch perch, it has an adjustment knob at two places on the cable, one after it comes out of the clutch lever and another one at the end of the cable on the left side of the engine, might want to do a little more research.....

Guys, it's electrical; the switch in the perch and nothing to do with mechanical free-play adjustment .
