While inspecting the clutch cable I noticed that the clutch release lever has a whole lot of movement to it. With the cable disconnected it can be moved forward and backward a little which I think is normal, but it can also be moved up and down in almost a circular pattern quite a bit. It can also be moved up and down a little with the cable attached. The clutch also grabs a little when let out slowly mainly when warm. Does this indicate excessive wear, and if so could it cause trouble shifting into gears, typically fourth gear which I can't get at all.
