let me start off by saying I am learning as I go and teaching myself so bare with me. I have a 96 dyna fxd I just recently installed a suicide shift and a open primary. I took it for a spin today and noticed when I accelerated the bike would just rev up and very slowly would get up to speed. best way i can explain it is that it feels like i'm doing a burnout on wet pavement and slowly getting traction. i have adjusted the clutch cable a few times but its not helping any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Are you adjusting the clutch at the belt drive as well as the cable? You need 3/8-1/2 a turn freeplay at the clutch pushrod then you adjust the cable.

You might have overtightened adjuster bolt or cable or both, so you clutch plates are not in resting position and are slipping.
You have to release cable completely, then adjust the bolt on the pressure plate as the John says( you screw in the bolt with your fingers till the touch down, then back off to the aforementioned specs , then tighten the nut. Only then you adjust cable with a very slight slack in it( a dime should fit in the crack of th lever before the cable tightens with the pull)
I personally adjust the push road by only backing it off 1/4 turn from the touch down.
I want maximum possible thrust and separation of the plates when I pull th clutch.
