I would start over. Take out the adjustment in the cable, make it loose. Then readjust the clutch itself. Adjusting the cable last. Also check the primary chain it too needs adjusted.

Correct, sounds like maybe he missed a step or did something out of sequence. He's got an 07 so it has auto primary chain adjust.
