Clutch not completely disengaging

My bike has been sitting for exactly a month with the drain pan off. Today I put in all the oil I had, 3.5 qts, and it barely took it to the add mark. Engine holds 4.1 qts, you only lose 3.5 qts when changing the oil and filter. So I'm assuming the clutch and tranny hold another .6 qts that leaked out and went completely dry in that month's time. It took about 5 tries of cranking the motor about 10 seconds each try before it started so the engine was definitely primed before starting. When I engaged 1st gear the bike lurched and the engine died. Clutch is adjusted all the way out. I can roll the bike in gear with the clutch lever in, but there is resistance. If it sounds like the clutch is sticking is there a way to prime it? If it's a problem with the clutch adjustment, is there any way to adjust it where the cable connects to the clutch cover?

You probably need to take the clutches out and soak them over night then re-install, fill it up with oil and see how that works.

Im no mechanic but thats just my .02

sounds like the clutch plates got dried up...you might be looking at taking out the clutches, soaking them in oil for an hour and reinstalling them,...i just had to do this on my dads bike which had sat up for a period of time

It's all good. Added a little over half a quart overfilling it a little on purpose. Let it run for a few mins then shut it off and rolled it around in gear with the clutch in. Put on full choke so the motor wouldn't start and cranked it in gear, the bike stopped jumping forward with the starter after a few seconds.
