    Clutch cable is supposed to be loose (have a bit of slack).

    When you accelerate the centrical force of the clutch spinning will cause the cable to tighten.

    If you do not have the proper amount of slack in the clutch cable then it will eventually break.

    Too loose and the clutch will not properly disengage.

    And for your starting problem, check your kickstand switch, clutch switch and kill switch on the handlebars.

    Check ground lead is clean on engine making good contact.

    If you have rerouted the clutch and it was good before maybe you have the cable jammed up somehow.

    There is a decompression device but haven't heard of any problems with it.

    Have you tried to jump bike off another battery using ground from doner battery to known good ground?

    Only re routed clutch cable becouse of this problem I've even riden it with cable disconnected and I can watch the clutch arm on engine move down n up with throttle so its not cable it's internal

    Check ground lead is clean on engine making good contact.

    not tryed jumping as its rare I get the fault and if I stop pushing start button to connect a jump start it's fine secound or 3rd push of button it feals like the starter has trouble if pistons are on full tdc

    Check your engine mounts if they are shot it will affect the clutch cable when on and of the throttle.

    Back to start issue.
    Check the state/quality of your positive (+) battery cable. When I first bought my 109 I was having hot starting issues. Suspected the battery but when I got into it I noticed the positive battery lead was flimsy. Replaced it with a new slightly heavier cable solving my problem.
