gsxr clutch issue

installed a new clutch ...

went to test bike .. when i pull in the clutch and put it in gear the bike just dies (not seeing clutch as pulled in)

i messed with that cable at the top and at the bottom in front of front sprocket .. and tried all settings

when i first put in new clutch and tried it it was like i had no resistance. even when i make it where the pull is full hard i stll am screwed

anyone ?

update:
then i read this:

the clutch is made up of fiber plates and metal plates. They are in a fiber-steel-fiber-steel..etc order. the # of steel and fiber plates vary from bike to bike. fibers and steels are about 7-10 bucks each.
-Remove the clutch cover
-remove the 4 or 5 bolts around the basket with the springs on them.
-remove pressure plate(I think thats what its called)
*check to see if the first fiber plate is staggerd compared to the rest of the plates..it will be noticeable*
-all your plates will come out then
pull out and stack in order as some may be different sizes. If there are different ones it will be the 1st and the last.
soak the fiber plates for about 1-11/2 hours in oil before installing
-put plates back in
-install press plate,springs,bolts
-new gasket if it has 1
-look at the clutch arm in the cover..it has to be in a certain position to go back on.
-adj clutch ond go.
Id put new steels in too.
lata

i for sure didnt stagger that last plate so i decided to try it again ...

i moved that clutch plate to the slot NOT with the others .. same !!!!

i noticed that my plates / friction plates when i was taking them off kind of stick together with the oil .. should i let the bike warm up and see if it works or some ... im so ..

i didnt try taking off the sprocket cover and seeing if that worked or whatever either

WHen you pull the clutch lever can you see the clutch plates moving in the case with the oil plug removed?

Did you soak the plates in oil for a little while before installation?
Did you adjust the clutch pushrod?
Did you use stock plates / fibers?
When you reinstalled the pressure plate did it line up properly and seat firmly on the clutch pack?
