Are you totally sure the cable is not binding? Have you removed it and checked and lubed it?
Is the clutch adjustment correct?

Not understanding what you mean by this. Can you add some more explanation?

Do you mean the clutch slips (in other words the revs go up without the speed going up) or that it slips out of gear when you accelerate hard?
