Casper, the bike didn't move. I removed everything and started over and I have the same problem. I've replaced my clutch lever many times so this has me a bit confused.

I am not understanding the "the bike didn't move" response. Are you able to push it forward when the clutch cable is removed and the bike is in gear?

The meaning behind this question is to completely rule out the lever / cable / cable tension from the equation. If the rear wheel is locked in place through the gear train and the pistons not moving in the cylinders, then I wouldn't suspect anything internal to the engine. If the rear wheel still spins when the activation side of the clutch is removed, then the problem is internal to the engine.

This problem is odd when the only thing replaced was the clutch lever. There shouldn't be anything that would cause this other than cable tension.

I suppose its possible that, with the cable removed, you managed enough slack to slip the clutch cable out from the bracket at the clutch cover. Check there.
